Movie Barcode Art

Moviebarcode takes each frame of a movie, stretches it out vertically, then squashes them all together into a uniform block. I’ve read some criticism of these for not conveying much useful information (true), but I think they have value from an aesthetic point of view — particularly when comparing them to each other.

The movie barcode that you’ve labeled as Snow White looks like it is actually Bambi.
