movieclips-topperIf you’ve ever tried to find your favorite movie scenes on YouTube or other video networks, you’ve probably noticed it’s not always the easiest thing to find the direct quotes you’re looking for. Not only are these classic scenes hard to hunt down, but more often than not, when you do finally come across them they’re low quality – with questionable video resolution and rough sounding audio.

While there are plenty of places online to find the full movie downloads, going through the process of getting the whole film and editing the scene you want down into a short clip is a time-consuming process. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a place online that already did that for you? Enter MovieClips (a service only available in the US & Canada).

Want an actor? Type it in. How about a line of dialogue? No problem. Genres, actions, moods, characters, themes, settings, props – there’s simply nothing left behind when it comes to finding the exact scene you want from a multitude of angles. What you get as your result is a well-designed grid of thumbnails of each matching clip that can instantly be previewed with a simple mouseover – a great way to quickly find the scene you want.


Not only can you search and view these select movie moments, but you can also save any clip as a favorite, buy related stuff for each movie the clips belong to, grab an embed code to drop any clip onto your own website, or hook into your social network to share around on Twitter, Facebook, Stumbleupon, Delicious, Digg, Reddit, or email it to a friend.

Another fun element to the clips’ pages are short trivia games associated with each clip – often pulling from a related actor, the movie itself, or some other related metadata that accompanies it.


The only drawback of the site thus far is that all of the clips are from only 6 movie studios – 20th Century Fox, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc., Paramount, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Universal and Warner Bros – but these six represent the largest studios in Hollywood. With 12,000 clips and the promise of thousands more, it seems that MovieClips is cementing itself as the premiere place online to find those hard-to-find movie moments – that is unless their upcoming competitor, AnyClip, has anything to say about it.

Avatar in 3D



Wow. What a movie.. Words can’t even begin to describe…

Action, Romance, Love, Hate, War, Peace, Science, Spiritual, Magical, Exciting, Calming, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Inspiring – all in one. 2 hours and 40 minutes of pleasure. Time flew.

So many messages too… Made me think: about mankind, how we are destroying our earth for another light beer and jeans, how we’re not connected to nature or to ourselves, how we don’t know how to have 1 mate- we move from one gratification to another, how we are so busy knowing at all that we don’t have room to learn from others, listen and grow, about choosing which path is right for us despite the norm or what we’re told to do, about true love.

Highly recommended.
