It's a little-known cinematic fact
(read: some director commentaries don't mention it) that since
filmmakers learned editing, “heading from left to right” has been
unspoken visual shorthand for “going on an heroic journey.” By
that rationale, this montage – simply and appropriately titled “Go
Right” – packs more pixellated heroism than several dozen “gruff
man explodes aliens” trailers combined (via AV Club). Have you sent all
these characters Going Right?
Plenty of you doubtless have
old-time consoles packed away somewhere. We like to hope this clip
might see you dusting them off, hooking them up, finding the plugs
are all wrong, heading down to Radio Shack for an adapter, hooking
your consoles up again... then fondly returning to the days when the
first thing to go on a joypad was the “Right” button, from all
that heroism. However your weekend's looking, we hope it Goes Right.
