SLEEPY HOLLOW (1999)
🔪The film was almost entirely shot with a blue filter. So, for the blood to appear red, the liquid used had to be bright orange.
🔪In the novel, the Headless Horseman was a Hessian who lost his head due to a cannon blast in an unknown battle of the American Revolutionary War.Also,
Ichabod Crane is a schoolteacher in the novel, not a policeman.
Well,if I am not mistaken,this is the 1st time I watch Johnny Depp in a film.I have to say I was impressed by his acting abilities and by his character Ichabod.He was a weird but smart character,with which we sympathize from the beginning.Christina Ricci was very good too as always.I loved their chemistry,even though it made me a little sceptical their age difference.But,Depp has the luck to look younger than he is,so it was not awkward.Generally, acting was great.Miranda Richardson was dope.Christopher Walken was scary as he should have.Direction was nice,they actually succeded in making that creepy,gloomy,gothic atmosphere.Cinematography was well made.Plot was quick as we wanted and the film did not fail to make me feel intrigued till the end.Plot was different in some details from the novel,still was well applied.I enjoyed it a lot,and undoubtly the figure of the horseman is scary.However,I do not know if I was scared by his headless version or his version when he appears with his face restored.It is just a frightening character.I liked the ending,but I think it would be better if in a magical way after the restoration of horseman's head,all these people having been killed were resurrected.I loved the direction and cinematography of the scenes with Ichabod's mom,but I failed to fully understand what had happened and why her death was connected by Ichabod with the current situation.It is not my fav film,but I could definitely rewatch it,because it is carefully made with great cast and interesting till the end.
Praying to Goth god Robert Smith that she comes here week or so early for comic con here 🤓but ur fave 90s goth gurl Christina ricci is in Auckland for @armageddonexponz . gothageddon more like 👏#christinaricci#90sgoth
A ratillos me he ido pasando otro de los clásicos de la Snes, el "Addams Family".
Está basado, al menos en su diseño, en la exitosa película de 1991 con, entre otros, Raúl Juliá, Anjelica Huston y Christina Ricci, y ya se sabe que en esa época, el paso de una peli a videojuego podía ser un acierto o un engendro.
Aquí Ocean, especialistas precisamente en adaptar material fílmico, atinaron tomando el concepto general de la película y trasladándolo a los 16 bit sin dejarse limitar por el material previo y con mucha gracia.
El juego es un plataformas clásico en el que hay que recorrer 14 fases con infinitos subniveles y -lo más divertido- decenas de habitaciones secretas con guiños y tesoros.
Hay muchos tipos de enemigos y obstáculos, simpáticos y bien diseñados, la ambientación es muy variada y excelente, y el juego es a ratos extremadamente difícil, lo que al final es lo que lo hace ser un desafío. .
Si alguien tiene ganas de volver a 1991, aquí tiene una puerta secreta! 👻
Summer daze • flower crowns • smiles and sun dappled light •
When I was a kid I used to love this movie about two girls going on an adventure on the ONE day a year this cave was accessible, the longest day of the year, summer solstice.
I feel like what was so exciting about the movie was there were two queens and they were on their OWN adventure that wasn’t about dudes or lookin hot. Maybe it was about treasure in a cave or something?
Anyway all I know is yesterday I went on a solstice adventure with a good friend and I felt like I was living my childhood dream. We were on a solstice adventure of our own making! We pushed our limits of how far we could go on foot. We encountered deer and cows and biting bugs. We walked and talked and we walked in silence. We took a few lovely breaks and listened to Nina Simone in the forest for good ju ju. We walked all day, covering 11 miles and traversing the whole length of Finger Lakes National Forest in one day. Livin the dream.
My inner child feels alive and well.
Rachel Flax: Alright, you know what? I'll make you a deal. You stop being a little bitch for, let's say, oh, I don't know, an hour or two, and I won't knock the religion of your choice for a week. Deal?
Charlotte Flax: Deal!
I’m very inspired by Rachel Flax’s style of parenting.
