Film Criticism by David O'Connell

Famous movie scenes ruined by inappropriate soundtracks

July 24th 2008 22:36
Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

This is the latest internet meme from Something Awful; users post scenes from movies with inappropriate soundtracks, ruining the scene, but making it awfully funny to watch.

For example, what if the scene of Agent Smith and Neo fighting in the subway, from "The Matrix" was linked to the theme song of a cheesy 90s sitcom?



Brilliant... I found these on Kottke.org, which offers a terrific list of ruined scenes: "A New Hope" ruined by Queen, and this hysterical mash of the punishment scene in "Starship Troopers" mixed to Devo. Woah!

It's a great feat... some of the clips come out pretty damn good, like this revamped "Monsters, Inc.", but I love the idea of ruining a scene. How far can we push it?

It hard to pick a fave out of those but your right the Monsters Inc one works a treat...strangely certain cuts in the New Hope/Queen mix create an appropriate atmosphere of dread (namely the chewie shots).

Now I think its time someone cut the brutal Jodie Foster rape scene in The Accused with The Prodigy's Smack My Bitch Up!

Maybe the gutter head smash in American History X mixed to Louis Armstrong's It's a Wonderful World

How about the love scene from Pretty Woman cut to Head Down, Ass Up from 2 Live Crew.

Tom Hanks death in Philadelphia cut to the Bee Gee's Staying Alive

I'd better stop, Iím getting carried away here, could go on all night.
