The ghoulish seven: top scariest movies of the 2000s (part 2)

5. “Horror Amityville” (The Amityville Horror, 2005) And another bright representative of the genre in 2005 — “Horror Amityville”. We finally got to the spirits and demons. And again, a remake of the Thriller of 1979. It is not known how important “Based on real events” is to the viewer in this case, but this was in the table of contents of D. Anson’s novel of the same name.A story that destroys, like a house of cards, the typical American dream of a happy family and a big bright house. In paints painting, as a caring husband and stepfather gradually, day by day, from a normal person turns into a possessed beast. Somewhere, I think?” That’s possible. Not Kubrick, of course, but who came to the cinema in adulthood, Andrew Douglas before traded advertising photography, so the picture does not disappoint. In addition, not the last role was played by a successful casting of actors: R. Reynolds, M. George and quite a crumb Chloe Moretz. Continue reading

“Aladdin”: this movie should be called ” Jasmine»

“Aladdin” (Aladdin), seems, was the only cartoon Golden era Disney, where the main, Central character history was not Princess, and its intended-and this even reflected in the title. But in the film adaptation of 2019, everything fell into place — despite the fact that the narrative is conducted on behalf of a thief who suddenly received a lamp with an Almighty Genie, the focus is on Jasmine.

The project at the stage of rumors and discussion seemed ambiguous — to entrust the children’s story to guy Ritchie, the main popularizer of British marginal romance? But if you think about it, the characters of” Aladdin ” perfectly fit into Richie’s worldview: Aladdin himself without a penny in his pocket eats stolen apples and robingudski shares hard-earned dates with starving kids, Jafar fights for power, Jasmine proves to the world that she is not what everyone sees her, and the Genie suffers from lack of freedom and sprinkles jokes right and left, in which wise advice periodically slips.

(Not)heroes: the story of a deconstructed superhero image in comic book adaptations

Marvel now many took out. More precisely, not even Marvel itself as such, but the dominance of their film comics. Film adaptations are full of stamps and even self-copying (I still laugh at how similar the plots of the third “Thor” and “Black Panther” are, and how much they differ in implementation), and the conveyor feed of content simply tired some viewers, and a trip to the cinema for a fan of comics turned from a holiday into a routine. But then deconstruction burst onto the stage of film adaptations again — and this time it appeared on time and in a big way.

Spoonful of history: the eighties was a difficult period for the comic book industry. Stories began to gradually move away from the riot of colors, irrepressible pathos and ultrapositive, deeper and stronger to consider social problems, to climb into politics, to criticize the existing system, through the prism of other, artificial worlds to tell what is happening in the real world, exaggerating events and their outcomes.
