Holy crap. I had no idea that the "Call On Me" video used the choreography from Perfect.

Ah yes, the 1980s. The single worst decade Hollywood has ever had. "We have no scripts, no ideas, no stories. What do we do?"

"Soft porn?"

"BRILLIANT!"

Having worked in a movie theater that played "Perfect" all I have to say is that was awesome.

Can't sleep, the 80s will hump me!!!

All we need is a sacrifice and a riot and its probably pretty close to what Stravinsky had intended.
 
2012-07-08 01:17:38 PM
Yuck.

Was Travolta looking at her or his own reflection during those hip thrusts?

Edit almost exactly 1/2 of that video out, and you've got an excellent video.
 
2012-07-08 03:12:16 PM
So THAT'S why people rioted at the premiere!

Is it me, or did that sound like John Williams "Jaws" score. Any ideas?

You're actually right on target there.

From Wikipedia:

John Williams composed the film's score, which earned him an Academy Award and was later ranked the sixth greatest score by the American Film Institute.[62][63] The main "shark" theme, a simple alternating pattern of two notes-variously identified as "E and F"[64] or "F and F sharp"[65]-became a classic piece of suspense music, synonymous with approaching danger (see leading-tone). Williams described the theme as "grinding away at you, just as a shark would do, instinctual, relentless, unstoppable."[66] The piece was performed by tuba player Tommy Johnson. When asked by Johnson why the melody was written in such a high register and not played by the more appropriate French horn, Williams responded that he wanted it to sound "a little more threatening".[67] When Williams first demonstrated his idea to Spielberg, playing just the two notes on a piano, Spielberg was said to have laughed, thinking that it was a joke. As Williams saw similarities between Jaws and pirate movies, at other points in the score he evoked "pirate music", which he called "primal, but fun and entertaining".[61] Calling for rapid, percussive string playing, the score contains echoes as well of Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring.

I'm a fan of Williams, but a lot of his stuff sounds suspiciously like something that came before. Another example is this.

Video was kind of fun. I always liked that part of Rite of Spring that sound like metal. Stravinsky was the man.

I always thought Williams' theme from JFK sounded like Abraham, Martin and John by Dion... there is a similarity... i Think it's paying homage.

And well Star wars does sound like Kings Row, I think it's fair to draw inspiration (heavily) from other works... there are only so many tunes out there...

That was a good chuckle.

I don't think that at all. It sounds as close to the Superman theme as it does Star Wars.

huh? and i thought that was the last decade. The 80's had some fantastic movies. Lately all you get is rehashed garbage, and sequels/prequels and crap in 3d you would want in 2d

Link goes to list of some 80's movies that were great. and not softcore porn.

The summers of 1982 and 1985 would like a word with you.

I think you've got your decades mished-mashed. Hell, if you take only the "Princess Bride", you've pretty much established the entire decade as worthy of praise. I, for one, miss the 80's. I'm guessing the current decade will be known as the "User Decade" -- good at using whatever technology Apple puts in front of them, but poor at original thought.
