Video: 2011 Movie Trailer Mashup mixes action and story

Movie Videos by Jim Napier

We have shared a number of cool 2011 film mashups on the site. Here is a trailer mashup from SleepySkunk that gives us a look back at the various films from the year, highlighting some of the intense action sequences. The music used in the mashup is Lords of Acid and Randy Edelman's To The Stars from the Dragon Heart soundtrack. 

Here is a description of the video:

The year in movies has stood out for two reasons in my humble opinion. First, it was a year that started with a "Summer Blockbuster" (The Green Hornet) and ended with one (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol). Studios realized that audiences love car chases and explosions on the big screen as much as butter on their popcorn and every single month in 2011 granted us with a surprising share of intense action.

Second, it was a year of looking back and respecting the essential elements that used to make movies so special. From Drive and Hugo to Super 8 and The Artist, it seems that studios have started acknowledging the missing ingredients in their recipe for success and paid great tribute to the kind of movies that were once (and still are) warm to our hearts.

This end-of-year montage is divided in two parts that attempt to outline and illustrate each of these points through images rather than words.
