Before Edgar Wright paid homage to the nerdy universe he loves in 'Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,' he was stockpiling his favorite film moments on VHS and editing the living daylights out of them. Everything from 'Goodfellas' to 'Terminator' and 'Bonnie and Clyde' makes an appearance in this montage of screen gems and guns that a 19-year-old Wright whipped up while at Bournemouth Art College.

The 1993 video gives a good feel for Wright's sense of pace and timing, even at an early age. His humor is in full effect, too, as he sets his "bullet ballet" to a Beatles song that blasts the NRA. Wright peeped a little bit about the making of the montage, saying, "All of the clips were sourced from either films I've recorded off the TV, sell thru VHS tapes I had bought and also films that happened to be in the college library. I literally had piles of VHS tapes in the edit suite. So that explains some of the glitchy clips." We forgive you.

Check out the full video after the jump. If you have some time on your hands, see if you can name the movies sampled. Visit Wright's blog to make your movie brain happy.
