As you might have guessed, PPH is pretty busy at the moment, so in lieu of a proper post here’s a couple of my favourite vids, in fact probably the best two vids on YouTube; Arnold Schwarzenegger quote heaven. Watch, and watch again. (All credit goes to the redoutable hh1edits). Normal service will be resumed next week.
Check out this montage of spellbinding ‘top-down’ shots taken from various films. All credit goes to YouTuber Editcadet1, who explains “This type of shot is commonly referred to as a “God’s Eye View” angle. The camera lens is perpendicular to the subject without any POV reference, which gives the viewer an omniscient viewpoint of the character and the surrounding space”. See how many you can recognize:
Here’s a fun clip-reel of some of today’s well-known stars before they hit the big time. Features Sarah Jessica Parker looking decidedly odd, a disconcertingly chiselled Jack Black, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt stealing a scene in Roseanne. Credit goes to Guillaume Gendron for the spot and YouTuber pleatedjeans for the upload. A full new Permanent Plastic Helmet post is coming soon.
Moving, elegiac, graceful: yes, it’s the Sean Bean Death Reel, courtesy of the ever-excellent Harry Hanrahan (or hh1edits, if you’d like to visit his YouTube page). Obviously, the vid contains plenty of fairly large plot spoilers and an abundance of gratuitous, anti-Yorkshireman violence. Bean dies 21 times here, which got me wondering: can you think of any other actors who have died more on-screen? Post your thoughts below.
