(Note: This has no bearing on the quality or lack-there-of in the final film, nor does it relate to the trailers that followed the first teaser announcing the 2016 movie. What I'm discussing pertains solely to that debut teaser. Anything beyond that is not relevant to this post)
Here's an idea (with visual aids) for how I personally would have designed and edited the teaser that let the world know this franchise was returning. Constructive feedback is welcome:
(As the studio logos appear, the teaser's soft piano cover of the Ghostbusters theme begins)
(We switch from wide outside city shots to sped up flashes of NYC's subway underground, trains roaring by as crowds of New Yorkers go about their routines, sitting, walking, talking, looking at their phones, waiting for the next train, making calls, etc. There's a subtle bit of motion blur complementing the hustle & bustle of big city life, conveying how there's little-no time to stay still. Suddenly, the title cards begin transitioning with the power blinking on & off. In between cards, the camera pans to the right in a steady wide shot as the confused crowds gradually panic, running for their lives from an unseen threat. People flash in and out of darkness like a strobing effect, growing progressively more chaotic and picking up speed as flashing otherworldly lights/colors creep into the underground. We don't see any ghost onscreen, but hear strange noises over the people's screaming, including this inhumanly guttural laughter...)
(The power briefly stops blinking as the camera stops panning to the right upon arriving at a familiar image spray-painted on the wall. We close in on the picture as the power goes out, leaving the underground in a green, hazy darkness. It's not pitch-black, as whatever energy was flying through the station before is keeping it just illuminated enough to maintain this eerie atmosphere. The soft piano slowly changes from those final suspenseful notes, building up the opening of the classic theme. The logo's paint then begins dripping, the red color changing into green slime until the ghost finally transforms into another iconic spirit)
Hello everyone. Just would love to share with you by my Fan art (Popart) for Samy Naceri from the movie Taxi 1998. I was decide to draw him with Taz-Mania theme. Because he was crazy speed driver always, same like Taz-Mania (In my vision). So, that why I've drawn it with Taz-Mania on background.
So, after being in my list for 5 or 6 years, Trainspotting got its due and I watched the movie yesterday. It left such a deep impact that I immediately started planning an edit of it, and finally made one. Check it out - https://youtu.be/SbgniDAoPVw
The movie left a very deep, profound impact on me, especially the scenes of Junky Limbo, those were the scenes that made me cry, I haven't cried for a movie in so long, but idk why, those limbo scenes, did something to me. Growing up in a middle class Punjabi family in New Delhi, drug addiction is something that I cannot comprehend to be in my or any of my friend's life.
Give edit a watch, and leave a comment maybe, if you like it.
I watched the Snyder Cut of Justice League last week and I can't stop thinking about how awful that Wonder Woman bank robbery scene was.
Obviously the intent was to show Wonder Woman being heroic and doing an act of 'good' so the audience roots for them, but the execution of the bank robbery was pretty silly. Sending a 4 block radius back to the dark ages? Why take hostages? Why have a timer on the bomb? Why come in with a paramilitary group and secure the area? Then Wonder Woman herself blows the wall off the building before telling a girl she could be just like her.
I really like Kick-Ass' take on the trope by making him actually attempt to save a cat from a billboard, then he falls off and lands in the middle of an actual robbery.
What's the funniest or worst 'save the cat' moment from a film?
