Cinemetrics Is Mesmerizing

Quick video I stumbled upon last night and in all seriousness, I feel like I could spend hours watching this.  It's a graphical analysis of movies using motion, color, shot length and running time.  It's pretty self explanatory.

I really enjoy the side by side comparison of the frenetic spikes of Alien with the almost static blackness of Soderbergh's Solaris.  Also, I love that the soccer match and porn actually look like what they are.  (Porn literally looks like it's trying to have sex with itself.)  Kudos to Frederick Brodbeck for his excellent work here.  Now let's make this an actual database for browsing!
