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.

“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.

“Lion king”: digital ” in the animal world»

It feels like Disney decided to reshoot its entire catalog. Well, maybe someday they will get to “El Dorado”, “Atlantis” or “treasure Planet” , but for now they are releasing remakes of much more famous paintings. The updated “lion King” (Lion King) was called “one of the most anticipated films of this year.” The question — and anyone really expect? Did anyone really want it?

No one needs it except Disney. The whole film is such a boast of modern technology, and nothing else: they say, look how we can! We can draw a realistic Savannah, run into it realistic-looking animals that will move realistically. Not a single living creature, except for 3D Visualizers, was harmed in the making of the film.And the picture really looks very cool. The film at all reminds episode “in world animals”, and very, it is a pity that in Russian dubbing not there was seats for Nikolai Drozdov — he would modicum as any revived this parade digital dolls.
