If you’re a fan of Community, there’s a very good chance you’re also a film buff—since the show’s first season, Dan Harmon’s world of misfit community college students has been rife with movie references.

Anne Thomas has compiled many of those homages, parodies, and throwaway lines into one fun supercut, though as others have been quick to point out, she forgot to include Robocop. (“I’m just as bummed about it as you are!” she explains on the video’s Vimeo page.) Still, the array of films that is included—F/X 2: The Deadly Art of Illusion, Zardoz—wonderfully reinforces just how deep the show’s nerd-dom goes. (To watch, just enter the password movietime.)
