I've just discovered this little gem through an article about Die Hard on Cinephilia & Beyond.

Not Youtube. Awesome, nevertheless.


NAKATOMI PLAZA is a reorganization of selected shots from the 1988 film Die Hard. The Protagonist, John McClane, runs around Nakatomi Plaza getting dirty and bloody but finds no enemies: they have been removed. As the scenery is repeated and John’s situation does not change, he is stuck in this building, scared out of his mind, looking around for someone to shoot. The breaking of continuity in the color of his shirt and selection of guns breaks the linear narrative and open interpretation to what is happening. Is he in a videogame? A dream? Nightmare? Is he simply insane?

As someone who loves Raising Arizona and feels the Hudsucker Proxy is hugely underrated this was an eye-opening history lesson as to how Sam Raimi influenced some of my favorite filmmakers.

It was Memorial Day this past weekend for the US, which means lots of war movies. If you ever wondered how accurate some of these are, either because you're hopelessly analytical like me, or just because you like ruining fun, here's an awesome video.



Also, there's one particular movie here that people love to bash for its inaccuracies, which they may be surprised to find out is actually pretty accurate as films go....

^ Wow, that sets a new bar. The main Stallone effect is near perfect, even passing though different light sources. The supporting FX are the usual okay standard but they make up for it with LOLs.

Reminds me of the old Playstation Abe's Odysee games meets a '90s Tool video...

A pretty great retrospective on Michelle Yeoh that serves as an intro to Everything, Everywhere, All at Once.


This is an interesting channel; it often looks at Chinese film very critically from an insider's perspective, but gives credit where it's due (as in Yeoh's case.)

Somehow Spike Jonze got embedded at Al Gore's house with his family right before he ran for president. This is a chill look at him hanging out, just mostly giving off dad-vibes. No crazy filmmaking technique here like Jonze is often known for, but the choice of footage leans a lot more heavily on very relatable, personal moments rather than Gore speaking about values or politics. If this would've played on TV, nobody would've said that Gore seemed stiff or lacking in personality.

This is impressively integrated footage:


The camera angles/movements and changes in lighting are great. You could add anybody to a fanedit these days.

It had me thinking if game engines could be used to complete green screen deleted scenes. Since you could match the camera positions.
