Michael Jackson-HIStory/Blood on the Danceflloor: The Music Videos



HIStory Teaser



"Scream"
Written, composed and produced by Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis Music video directed by Mark Romanek

The most expensive music video ever made ($7 million)

"The clip's great allure is that neither of the siblings looks quite real. While the visuals hold barely any connection to the lyric, and seem to have no clear point, the weird look captivates" -Jim Farber, N.Y Daily News, 14/6/1995



"Childhood"

Written, composed and produced by Michael Jackson

"An outstanding, a Chris Van Allsburg-style vision of children in flying airships, crusading through a forest at night" -Doug Pratt, Doug Pratt's DVD: Movies, Television, Music, Art, Adult, and More!



"You Are Not Alone"
Written and composed by R. Kelly and co-produced by R.Kelly and Michael Jackson

"[it] remains among Michael's best song's ... On listening to 'You Are Not Alone', one wonders how many times Michael tried to tell himself, during his most desperate and anguished times, that he did have support in his life, from a higher power, or even friends and family, whether he actually believed it or not" -J. Randy Taraborrelli



"Earth Song"
Written and composed by Michael Jackson Produced by Michael Jackson,David Foster,Bill Bottrell Music video directed by Nick Brandt

"A powerful gospel opus" -Michael Mehle, Rocky Mountain News



"They Don't Care About Us"
Written, composed and produced by Michael Jackson Music videos directed by Spike Lee

"'They Don't Care About Us' has an edge, and Spike Lee had approached me. It's a public awareness song and that's what he is all about. It's a protest kind of song ... and I think he was perfect for it" -Michael Jackson

Brazil Version


Prison Version


"Stranger in Moscow"
Written, composed and produced by Michael Jackson

"[Jackson is] angry, miserable, tortured, inflammatory, furious about what he calls, in 'Stranger in Moscow', a 'swift and sudden fall from grace'...HIStory feels like the work of someone with a bad case of Thriller nostalgia. Occasionally this backward focus works to Jackson's advantage: On 'Stranger in Moscow' he remembers the synth-pop '80s while constructing wracked claims of danger and loneliness" -James Hunter, Rolling Stone, 10/8/1995






"HIStory" Tony Moran remix/"Tony Moran's HIStory Lesson"
Originally composed by Michael Jackson, James Harris III and Terry Lewis



"Blood on the Dance Floor"
Written and composed by Michael Jackson Produced by Michael Jackson and Teddy Riley
Music video directed by Michael Jackson and Vincent Paterson

"[it is] a second-rate mixture of 'Beat It' and 'Thriller' but Jackson's missteps are better than most pop music out there. This track showcases all the artist's trademarks: the ooohing, the grunts, and funky basslines. It is hard to hear 'Blood on the Dance Floor' and not want to moonwalk or dance like a ghoul" -J.T Griffin, Allmusic, 13/7/2005

'Saw V' Review



Originally published on November 5, 2008

Saw V, the new installment in the successful series, after the terrible Saw III-IV.It was a little better than i expected,but that does not mean that it was good.After Saw II, the series goes steadily downhill.In my opinion, only the first two were good.

Anyway, back to Saw V.Basically, it's more of the same.It's the same concept, with the elaborate traps ,the philosophy of Jigsaw, and with more details about the events of previous movies.An alternate title could be Saw: The Flashback, because a significant part of the plot consists of flashbacks about how Jigsaw (Tobin Bell) recruited Det.Hoffman (Costas Mandylor),etc.In the present, agent Strahm (Scott Patterson) continues to investigate the involvement of Hoffman.Of course,there's a group of people who are put to the test.And there is a semi-twist in the end.

Die-hard fans may like Saw V, but the truth is that we have seen this before and more successfully executed, as far as the first two movies are concerned.The movie will be profitable and consequently Saw VI is already in the works.In a scene between Jigsaw and Hoffman (one of the few interesting scenes,if not the only one), Jigsaw talks about rehabilitation (among other things).That's what the series needs for the next movie to be at least descent.

The look of Halloween II



Excerpt from an interview with writer-director Rob Zombie.

The look of Halloween II is very different from the first one.

Well I was kinda disappointed with the look of the first one, I didn’t like it, I thought it looked too clean and it really bothered me. I like when movies look kinda dirty. I actually spent a lot of time in post trying to make it look dirtier. So this film I went back and shot it on 16mm instead of 35mm because I wanted it to look really grainy and gritty, and more real, so that when something was dirty it felt dirty. I got a different DP who works differently, we lit things with really low light, and would light the set 360 and I would shoot any direction I wanted and almost never ever moved a light, so if someone walked into the shadows, well there in the shadows, not like when everybody seems to be fully lit no matter what, and at night we would hardly light anything.

Joe Dante: "I think that 3-D has a big future"

Joe Dante, director of Gremlins, The Howling, and Small Soldiers (among others)

"I think that 3-D has a big future, if the exhibitors don’t botch it up. When [James Cameron’s] AVATAR comes out, I think people will say that it looks great. But I believe that 3-D has a bigger future than that. I don’t think it should be relegated to exploitation films or science-fiction. I think that you can do interesting things with 3-D in a dramatic situation. If you look at Hitchcock’s DIAL M FOR MURDER, the drama is incredibly enhanced by the fact that it was filmed in 3-D. And the spatial relationships between the characters, adds so much to it. Sooner or later, some Ang Lee-type guy is going to make a regular movie in 3-D: one that’s not a gimmick picture or a rollercoaster ride. And the 3-D will be a part of how he’ll tell the story. And it’s going to be good.”

From an interview about his new 3-D film, 'The Hole.'

Bryan Singer returning to X-Men?

You may have read that Bryan Singer mentioned this possibility in a recent interview.Here's what i wrote on the subject (in my review of Wolverine):

"What i would want to see is X-Men 4, a true sequel to X3.The reception to The Last Stand was lukewarm and many think that the series reached its peak with X2, and so it's argued that there is no reason for another sequel and if there was possibility for such a movie, new contracts with the actors and actresses would be needed, which means new negotiations and maybe higher cost.However, i would like to see, after some spin-offs, a true X-Men sequel, ideally with most of the cast and Bryan Singer returning.I think that there many good stories that deserve to be told.I know that it's probably not going to happen, though you can never be certain for anything."
