The good way to make even the worst horror movies valuable.

March 14, 2013

I know I already wrote and posted a similar post about changing soap operas into something everyone would appreciate. Yet, I guess all the people and fans would agree there’s a huge difference between the long, modern love and treachery stories and the dreadful plots and creatures, criminals and monsters of the horror movies. Therefore, I’d say there should be a great difference too between the ways to make soap operas and motion pictures with too much blood and killings worthy of Oscars?

Actually, there’s also an enormous difference between the fans of these totally different kinds of movies. The guys who couldn’t live without the dreadful events of the horror stories are usually youngsters with uneasy and troubled minds (and good imagination), or future criminals and murderers, or not so young people with insane thoughts and desires. While the fans of the long (and meaningless according to many critics and common viewers) soap operas could be found mostly amongst down to earth housewives and their husbands and friends who above all appreciate family values and simple, everyday joys. Modern love sagas’ men and women would never kill or torture someone for the pure joy of such an awful act, unless their life or the life of their kin and friends are endangered. They would never go to a school or other public place with a loaded gun and a lot of ammunition to send to heaven or oblivion many innocent kids or men and women. Their thoughts would never lead to a mass murder just to “show and prove” the righteousness of an idea, or to make the world “a better place”… On the other hand, the horror movies’ fans would do any of these incredibly vicious deeds, and wouldn’t hide the fact the bloody “tips” they could see in their favourite motion pictures were their inspiration and mottos for their insane and disgusting deeds.

“Horror movies don’t create serial killers, they just give them ideas.” These were the words of a character from Psycho (the 1998 version), though many of the enemies of the bloody stories would say quite the opposite. As there are so dreadful horror movies that they could provoke desire for blood spilling and killings even in the most kind-hearted and non-violent spectators, I will always remember the interview of a mother who said that the main reason for her son to become an insane killer were the awful scenes from his favourite bloody motion pictures. Such madness should make us all want to welcome a law or rule that would forbid the creation of movies in which one could only see meaningless murders, cruel killings and lots of other disgusting activity. The horror moments in such motion pictures should be just hints; the rest should be some wise thoughts, some philosophy, some noble deeds… In other words, they should become a combination of genres, then, any movie fan would see the wisdom there, not the inspiration for insanity… Just for example, there are a lot of killings and horrible moments in The Lord Of the Rings too, yet as there is a lot of philosophy and wise thoughts, it became the movie of the year at the annual Oscars and wouldn’t be a movie which could inspire desire to end humans’ life…

I guess it is not the only way to make the horror movies valuable; many other people could give some even better ideas. But I bet anyone would agree to combine the horror with philosophy and wisdom and create a rule or law about that could be a good cause to drastically decrease the awful side effects of the bloody and deadly scenes.

The Hobbit, A Movie About There And Back Again… And Happy New Year!

January 1, 2013

Happy New Year, everyone! Wish you all the best! 🙂

The Hobbit

No matter how good or bad a movie is, there will always be some guys who will praise it everywhere and in front of everyone, while some others wouldn’t be able to bear the sight of any frame from it and would anathemize it all over the world. That was why I wasn’t surprised there were negative reviews about The Hobbit, but was frustrated they were so many and so exaggerated.

Of course, the book is better, usually no movie could surpass the written story it’s based on. Yet, why there are complains about the duration of the motion picture? After all, that way a director, screen-writer and a crew could include much more events, wisdom, or adventures from the story? Many critics thought all the movie could be just two hours long (and not three parts of almost three hours each), but I guess then it would describe only a few of all the breath-taking dialogues, battles and creatures. Even now, it seems not all the adventures are included in the proper way (all the funny and interesting conversations and mishaps at the party with the dwarves and Gandalf or at Bilbo’s first meeting with the wizard were just touched upon, imagine what would they and some other adventures would look like if the movie was just one of about two hours…).

BTW, be careful which kids you would take to see this fantasy trilogy, all the nasty, scary and deadly creatures are so realistic (especially when we watch them in 3D and with 46 frames per sec.) that many of them would have nightmares after that for many nights, I guess…  Yet, all the kids and all the adults will be in awe with the costumes! As they are so perfect, as if they came out straight from the written story or are fruit of the wildest imagination… I guess all the three parts of the trilogy will have Oscars in that category…
