I have always been fascinated with this movie trope. I can talk for hours about it, so be careful about getting me started. I'm not even sure if this is the proper term for the cliché, but at some point I started keeping track of the ones I came across because I thought it was deserving of a supercut.  I didn’t know where to stop, but 101 One-Armed Saves felt like it rolled off the tongue nicely.

This is one of those back burner projects that took a long time to finally getting around to making. I have to credit my friend Michael Schwartz and his company Lucky Treehouse Films for keeping it on track. We had a really fun time editing it and launching it together, and we even got 50K views, some nice press and emails from people like this:

"I love and hate your montage. Love it because it's amazingly well edited and entertaining. Hate it because I didn't think of it first."
