"I am your father." You've probably lost count of how many times you've seen Darth Vader say that in Star Wars, right? And how about that moment in Star Trek: First Contact when Picard declares, "The line must be drawn here! This far, no further!" Both of these scenes have been seared into our memories.

But we've never seen either of them quite like this.

Some awesome video artists have been using kinetic typography—which simply means moving text—to re-create these and other classic sci-fi, fantasy and horror movie moments in a way that has to be seen to be believed.

Check them out below and you'll see what we mean!
