Movie-a-Minute

Let’s face it. There’s a lot of movies out there and very little time to watch them in. Well sit back and relax, because your troubles are solved! We here at Movie-A-Minute have come up with a solution. We’ve taken several classic and contemporary movies and extracted the important stuff, cutting out all the filler. (You’d be surprised how much filler there is sometimes.) With our ultra-condensed versions of your favorite films, you can experience whole movies in just one minute! As an added bonus, Movie-A-Minute protects against torture by bad movies — if you don’t have to sit through them, well, you don’t have to sit through them.
