Sometimes you'd just prefer to know what happens rather than actually sitting down and watching a certain blockbuster film, which is something that 'Shortology' by HL-57 takes in stride by scaling down major movies to a few simple images.
The continuation of 'Shortology' by HL-57 is fantastic and includes such hits as The Exorcist, Avatar and even The Matrix -- the plot points of which are all laid out in an easy to understand and identify manner. While they might not actually give you a clear explanation if you've never seen the film, they are certainly great for a laugh if you have seen them because comparing the simple images to the complex plots is surprisingly easy.
