A retro ‘50s version of the best of the
flicks that mixes together clips from
Flash Gordon, The Phantom Planet, Buck Rogers
The Outer Limits
. It reeks of class, and we love the inclusion of the cloud city, a monster that looks like Chewie, and a Han/Leia pair-up. Ice cool.
Ghost Busters (1954)
If the ‘Busters had made their movie debut 30 years earlier than they did with Bill Murray, they might have looked something like this. Another medly of clips Frankensteined to within an inch of life, this time with
The Three Stooges, Scared Stiff
Ghosts On The Loose
all roped in.
Forrest Gump (1949)
Jimmy Stewart replaces Tom Hanks in the titular role of a slightly slow young man who triumphs over adversity. Heaps of style in this one, with clever use of
Harvey, To Kill A Mocking Bird
The Stratton Story
giving the Gump tale a make-under.
Raiders Of The Lost Ark (1951)
Now we’re getting clever. Some smart Alec created his own
trailer using snippets from old flicks – and he’s done it frame by frame. Just to show off how excellent he is, Alec’s shoved them on top of each other so we can appreciate the pin-point precision. Stellar stuff.
Forget the nifty CGI and camera craftsmanship that went into J.J. Abrams’
, we want to see what it would have been like if somebody had made it back in the 1950s! This premake does a good job of emulating Abrams’ give-nothing-away sentiments.
The Dark Knight (1960)
You’ll have to watch
this one here
. What would Adam West have done with
The Dark Knight
if he’d had a chance to make it in the ‘60s? Well, this candy-coloured campfest, naturally…
Gone With The Wind With Vampires (1939)
Can’t wait for
Pride And Prejudice And Zombies
? Make do with this hair-curling treat instead. With a splash of CGI and some creepy sound effects, the windswept classic is given a vampiric facelift for the
gen. Could just be our favourite.
Logan’s Run (1936)
“A fantastic journey to a world beyond imagination,” says Voice-Over Bloke, as we get a
that’s entirely made up of snippets from
The Lost City, The Phantom Empire
Things To Come
. Great special effects.
Star Wars (1947)
The Empire Strikes Back
… came this! Made 30 years before it should have been, this premake pairs John Williams' inimitable score with some olde age film imagery and some great text (“It’s an adventure unlike anything on our world!”).
Phantom Of The Darjeeling (1978)
Christopher Lee pitches up in Wes Anderson’s 1970s premake of
The Darjeeling Limited
. Lee stars alongside Peter Cushing and Telly Savalas as three brothers whose journey leads them into the bowls of horror. Clips taken from
Horror Express, The Steel Claw
The Big Trees
. Good times.
