... in 7 minutes and 31 seconds: Think of this as the Opening Title Project. It's called "working title" by cuechamp, and it's a mesmerizing, rapid-fire montage of movie title cards, in alphabetical order, from silents to the present.

I'm getting dizzy. I'm going to have to go watch it again. I think I'm addicted.
