17 music videos with the participation of film characters

Today we remember the glorious and, unfortunately, forgotten art form-music videos in the style of cinema. The 80s and 90s of the last century are magical times filled with music videos with plots that have almost completely disappeared nowadays. Often, they expand the motifs of their films by featuring fictional characters along with musicians performing the tracks. Some clips are even regarded as sequels to the films: before the release of the second part of “Short circuit” there was a clip of” Who’s Johnny ” by El De Barge, in which the main characters get to the court session. Below is a translation of ScreenCrush’s selection of the funniest and weirdest examples. Continue reading

“Aquaman”: good old illogical Thriller

The film industry loves to flirt with nostalgia. First of all, this feeling is focused on all sorts of sequels-prequels and other sidequels, clinging to the already famous franchise. But the trick of “Aquaman” (Aquaman) is not even that he is part of the growing cinematic universe of DC. His trick is that the plot he brings the viewer back to the days of militants 80-90s, who wanted to watch with his mouth open.

In the first minutes after the session, I wanted to write a review of this kind: “Six reasons to go to “Aquaman”: 1. Wet half-naked Jason Momoa and also wet, but alas, less naked amber heard;2.

Absolutely indianojones desert with underground caves and artifacts;6. Bright and juicy picture, giving a sense of celebration. Continue reading

(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.
