Movie Featuring All The Missing Parts

All the parts of a movie's story that are cut out viewable in real time.
  [vote for,

Movies are all the important parts of stories cut together. For instance, the Godfather cuts out the part where Marlon Brando drives to his daughter's wedding. That scene might be about 20 minutes of him sitting in the back of a limo reading the paper.

Now with modern technology, all the missing parts of a movie that would happen in real life are there to view as they would actually happen. This was inspired by videos currently on Youtube consisting of things like 15 hours of paint drying, 20 hours of grass growing etc.

Luke Skywalker taking a nap before doing battle with Darth Vader and finding out he's Darth's son. 4 hours.

The shark in jaws swimming... and swimming... and swimming.

Indiana Jones making lunch.

You would have dozens of screens showing all the characters doing stuff in real time but here's the good part. You could scroll past these to scenes where they interact and actually perform the movie parts. You could even flip a switch where it fast forwarded through everything that was boring and slowed to real time for the important scenes.

This would impart an air of reality to your favorite movies.

NOTE: All bathroom scenes would be just the door closing obviously. The camera would patiently show the door for however many minutes before you heard a flush and the character walked out drying their hands.

Harry Shearer "Silent Echo Chamber" http://honolulumuse...ilent_echo_chamber/
Another video exploration of nothing happening. [doctorremulac3, Apr 24 2019]

       Yes. About a third of the movie would be sleeping.   

       Andy Warhol already explored this in his quest to see what he could get away with calling "art".   

       This would have a point though. And you could fast forward through it.   

       You might have to use CGI since I'm not sure how many famous actors would be willing to revisit their roll in famous movies to fill in the missing parts.

       This movie exists, almost. Link.

       // This would have a point though. //   

       And what would it be?   

       // Darth's son //   

       "Darth" is the guy's title, not his first name. (Though I don't think that was actually established (or even known to the creators) in the first movie. Certainly Luke being his son wasn't.)

       //Darth" is the guy's title, not his first name.//   

       I am so proud of not knowing that. I'm also a bit sad that now I DO know that.   

       I do love Star Wars and the Empire Strikes back, but stopped going to the movies when they had that stupid rasta talking mutant dogfish thing.
doctorremulac3, Apr 24 2019

       What about the millennia of human evolution preceeding the action?
pocmloc, Apr 24 2019

       The starting point for that would be a troupe of grunting hairy hominids capering round the Black Monolith ...

       ...aaaaand cut! I love it when we get it in one take!
That's lunch people.

       I think Vader's first name was Kevin.   

       Regarding //impart an air of reality to your favourite movies//, just no no no. I've had reality up to here. If I want an air of it, I'll just go and visit Aunt Judith, who lives in a semi-detached in Penge. She has a job, drives a Renault, has no history of substance abuse and has never appeared in the tabloid press. She is generally considered the black sheep of the family.

       If the caterers are serving filled tortillas, you could say " That's a wrap ! "   

       ... and then run before they had s chance to throw stuff.
8th of 7, Apr 24 2019

       We have caterers?... why the hell have I been bringing a bag lunch for the last two decades? Does nobody else care about the budget? CGI isn't cheap people let's just ease up on the surf'n'turf a little is all I'm saying... yes, I'm looking at you Phil.   

       Does Superman get his cape washed? Is it some kind of super no dirt getting on it material from the planet Blasto? Crapton, whatever. We might find out. What does Spiderman eat? Does he eat what spiders eat? Because that would be disgusting. For that matter what does Darth McVader eat? I've never seen him eat. Does he take the mask off? He'd have to. Does he sleep in that thing?   

       There was an interesting idea for an art exhibit once where it was just videos of famous people in frames not doing anything. There's a bit of that here. I'll see if I can find the link. I think it was put on by the voice of Homer Simpson if I remember correctly.   

       The voice of Smithers among others actually. (link)

       LOL! Very good.

       //grunting hairy hominids capering round the Black Monolith// - Yes, the 'missing bits' in 2001: A Space Odyssey might take a while, as you'd have to fill in all the action between these early hominids and 2001.
hippo, Apr 25 2019

       You could just use CGI to add a Black Monolith to old videos of parliamentary debates, if it weren't for the problem that the hominids in 2001 are considerably more intelligent, likeable and above all articulate than most mps.
