I was wondering if you could get away with videos that cut movies to show every time someone says a word or does something.

I've seen the commentary vids like cinefix with videos like 9 things you didn't know about Pulp Fiction.
Could you frame it as trivia, like how many times does Eddie Murphy say the f word in Beverly Hills Cop? And then the video is just all the instances with a counter?

Just wondering if those things are covered by fair use for research?

Thanks.

Standard rules apply- if you don't have the proper written permissions to use something, expect to have your video flagged at some point.

Perhaps they'll allow you to keep it and simply monetize it for themselves or maybe they'll issue a full takedown notice and give you a strike.

If you're not willing to take the risk, it's best to not use footage/ audio you don't create yourself.
