Trailers for the Best Picture Nominees Trimmed of Everything but the Swearing

Website DHRECK has put together nine videos of the Best Picture Oscar nominees that include nothing but profanity. Reportedly, Moneyball has a modest number of swears at circa 44, averaging out to just 0.38 swears/minute.

A few years ago I edited the Oscar nominees for the 'Best Picture' category into swear reels, removing everything except the profanity, and ended up with a few fast bursts of jump cut cursing. The resulting reels were somewhat entertaining and maybe gave a different perspective on the nominees; allowing a movie to be judged solely on how it carries itself in the strange land of the profane; or something deep like that. Yeah. Mostly somewhat entertaining.

Well, time for another go around! I almost didn't make it in time for the ceremony, with twice the movies and all, but I've seemed to have made it with hours to spare!
