Every week, Bor Beekman, Robert van Gijssel, Merlijn Kerkhof, Anna van Leeuwen or Herien Wensink take a position in the realms of film, music, theater or visual art.
It was arranged list from the entertainment site excitement Four Years Ago: What Landmarks of Washington were repeatedly destroyed in the movies. How?
Where the strength lies, Hollywood has always been the most inspiring and the hardest.
There was Dulles airport, where it rained down Die Hard 2. The Washington Monument is the 169-foot stone obelisk. It is sacrificed, among other things, by a pulsating green beam of a UFO independence DayFrom disaster film expert Roland Emmerich. Obviously the White House, with eight entrances high in excitement-List. We are calling 2012, Where the suddenly rotating crust of the earth swallows the ripple of the presidential house.
But the Capitol actually finished in 1. At least nine times it was leveled with the ground and all the way around. Freezing cold (the day after tomorrow), And again foreigners (Earth versus flying saucersAnd independence DayAnd Superman II(Or heavily armed terrorists)The fall of the White HouseAnd Olympus has fallenAnd GI Joe: Take revenge).
And then we don’t even count the parking lot next to the 200-year-old People’s Representatives Building. It was also hit several times, for example by terrorists’ rocket launchers Die Hard 4: Live Free or Die Hard.
But none of Hollywood’s writers – not even the most intelligent of them – came up with the idea of putting the Capitol Building in contact with a 32-year-old American in a fur hat with horns, bare bark, fake spear, conspiracy theory tattoos and a red, white, and blue face. And to get that guy – nickname: Jake – just go on the rally, chanting “USA,” and then he sits on the vice president’s seat. And he sovereign oversees how his friends, dressed in a bachelorette party, renovate the interior. Or drop the banister while you take selfies.
Of all the accusations leveled against Donald Trump after his four-year sentence, his peculiar influence on the world of cinema may not seem the most compelling. There is global warming and the survival of democracy – more important issues.
But it must be said: Trump is also disastrous for the United States to appear in the feature film. An urgent issue because China is in the wake of the world’s first cinematic country. There, virus-free residents are now comfortable with patriotic films from their soil, in reopened and well-stocked movie theaters.
What can Hollywood do in return to boost morality in the future? Another plot about some North Korean terrorists? Or evil alien robots? Devastatingly, there is no longer any honor in Washington.
The president’s role was a key component of the movement’s genre. That was a strong character, who led the fight. Or a moron, if it’s a comedy. The first alternative is no longer acceptable. And Trump’s parody doesn’t work, as he’s always two steps ahead of any parody.
This is also Trump’s legacy. America films are no longer there.
