Movie Bar Code is based on a simple but amazing concept - take every frame in a movie and compress it into a line. Then put them next to each other and you get a barcode of the movie. Movie Bar Code is brilliant because it gives an interesting perspective into the color palette used by different movies.

As website FlowingData observes, it’s even possible to determine when a particular scene in the movie begins or ends from the barcode, as noticeable in the barcode of the movie The Matrix (above). You can tell when they're in and out of the system.
