“Cinemageddon 2012” Raises The Bar For Retrospective Movie Videos


With 2013 rapidly approaching, it seems to be an apt time to look back over what has been a pretty memorable year for cinema. Everybody is beginning to pick out their personal favourites from 2012 and various sites, blogs and publications are starting to release their yearly best-of lists as well. However, over the past few years, one of the most enjoyable ways which has emerged to pay homage to the year’s cinematic offerings has been the retrospective video. Last week an early contender was released in the form of the ‘2012 Movie Trailer Mash-up’, which you can view below.


If you’re still itching for more, today we have a new video which will certainly take some beating in the highly competitive end of year retrospective movie montage stakes. Coming courtesy of Christopher Sherwood, ‘Cinemageddon 2012’ is a wonderfully edited mash-up video taking in a wide range of movies from across the cinematic spectrum.

“Every year I’ve loved watching the big year-end film compilations from editors like Matt Shapiro, Kees van Dijkhuizen, Gen Ip and others,” said Sherwood. This year I finally decided to make one. So thanks to all those who did it first, and a HUGE thanks to my sister, the best assistant editor I could ask for.”

You can check it out below:


It’s a really well put together piece of work and one which will really remind you of how many great films have come and gone in 2012. If you’re anything like me, it will also remind you of how many awesome movies you never got round to seeing.  Christopher helpfully provided an alphabetical list of all the movies he used in his retrospective, you can check it out below.
