Over 1,000 charged for sharing revenge porn on Facebook

TwitterFacebook

Over 1000 people have been charged for sharing sexually explicit content without consent on Facebook in the biggest case of its kind in Denmark.

According to Danish police, two videos and a sexually explicit image involving two 15-year-olds were originally posted to Facebook Messenger, the platform’s private chat service. The video was then shared hundreds of times across the platform, and now, a total of 1,004 young people have been charged — and about 800 are male, reports Bloomberg. While the content was posted by someone within Denmark, it’s unclear if everyone accused of sharing it are from the country. Read more…

8 Things You Can Learn from the First 8 Years of Cinema

Anyone who remembers Martin Scorsese’s Hugo (2011) has had a short introduction to the weird, innovative, and sometimes pretty awkward world of the first few years of film history, what Tom Gunning has defined as the “cinema of attractions”. One of the thing that strikes me the most about the few films we can see from this era (and there isn’t much left, as 75% of all silent films are estimated to have been lost forever) is how awkward they can be. You can definitely feel how the first filmmakers were trying to figure things out, and at the same time, it can be delightful to see how innovative they could be in this process. This post is a little exploration of the world of early cinema and of what we can learn from it – even from the prospective of contemporary filmmaking. Do you get easily bored by silent, black and white single-shot films made by people who had no idea what continuity editing was? Don’t worry, they are all pretty short anyway. If you really can’t make it through all of them, just go to the cat video at the end.

 

1) Special Effects Can Be Created With No Money

The Lumiere Brothers’ Demolition of a Wall (1895), made during cinema’s official birth date, is famous for being the first example of reverse-motion on film. Their subject choice is quite fitting: we are not surprised by how little time the wall takes to fall, but the fastness with which it gets restored when the film is played in reverse is really striking, as it plays with our perceptions of movement. The dust created by the demolition of the wall functions almost as the smoke for a magic trick, and it is fascinating to watch it being absorbed by the wall during the reverse-motion bit. It is also an early example of a very cheap special effect (hopefully, the Lumiere brothers had to get rid of that wall anyway).

2) You Can Be Meta And Funny at the Same Time

The first film to use an extreme close-up, The Big Swallow (1901) is a great example of how early audiences were constantly made aware of the fact that they were watching a film, proving that self-referentialism in film isn’t at all new, or artsy, or innovative. It can be, however, really funny, as this example by British director James Williamson shows.

3) Parallel Editing is Something We Learn to Understand

Edwin S. Porter’s The Life of an American Fireman (1903) was long considered the first example of parallel editing in the history of cinema. If you look at this version, however, you’ll notice that there is no parallel editing at all; instead, minute 5:10 sees the repetition of the action in the previous shot, now shown from a different location. Film historian Charles Musser concluded that this was the original version to be shown in 1903, and that the one with parallel editing was released later as a re-editing. While parallel editing is for us a straightforward practice, early filmmakers feared that audiences used to watch plays taking place in a single location would not understand the change of location during a continuous action, and that they would instead need to see the same action from two different perspectives. Only over the next few years, after audiences got accustomed to editing, parallel editing started becoming a standard practice.

4) Titles Can Confuse as Much as Explain

As Tom Gunning explains, early audiences didn’t really think that they were going to be run over by the moving vehicles they saw on screen. Made 5 years after Lumiere Brothers’ famous Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat, Cecil M. Hepworth’s How it Feels to Be Run Over (1900) expands on the previous film by literally showing the car attacking the camera and the spectator. But what interest me more in this British film is its very early example of intertitles: after the screen goes dark, we see a triple exclamation mark, followed by one exclamation mark, and by the mysterious writing: “Oh! Will be pleased”. It turns out that the original writing was: “Oh! Mother will be pleased”, which does make a little more sense. But the way the words are presented, handwritten and one quickly after the other, with the exclamation marks at the start, is quite different from the static, clear intertitles that would become the norm during the next 27 years of silent cinema. Perhaps the filmmakers hadn’t realised that reading intertitles that quickly is actually quite difficult. Or maybe they did, but they wanted to express precisely the erratic speech of someone who has just been in a car accident. From this perspective, I actually quite like that the only version of the film I was able to find on Youtube has one missing word.

5) You Can Use Camera Transitions Expressively

The BFI National Archive presents us Cecil Hepworth’s Alice in Wonderland (1903), the first film adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s children book. From the very unimpressed Cheshire Cat (more about cats later), to the lovely title shot, to the highly decayed state of the images which almost makes them more hallucinatory, there is a lot to notice and like. While some of the transitions are definitely pretty awkward for modern standards, the final, long dissolve signifies very appropriately that Alice is waking up from her dreamy vision.

6) Camera Movement Works Best When Juxtaposed with Stillness

British filmmaker George A. Smith’s A Kiss in the Tunnel (1899) is usually understood to mark the beginning of narrative editing – its 3 shots flow well together, and the dark frames between them are justified by the fact that the train is moving inside and then outside of the tunnel. It also contains an example of early cinema’s phantom ride, in which a cameraman was strapped to the front of a moving vehicle, showcasing the movement of the vehicle without needing to manually move the camera at all. Despite being a very short-lived genre, phantom rides are understood to have played an important role in the development of the tracking shot. Here, the effect is particularly striking because at the start of the sequence there is no camera motion – we only see the train coming towards us, in what initially seems just a copy of Lumiere Brothers’ Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat. However, while the train keeps moving towards us, the train that the camera is placed on starts moving, too, going in the opposite direction – a very effective way to play with the ideas of stillness and movement.

7) Have Fun With Your Props

George A. Smith’s As Seen Through a Telescope (1900) is a very early example of the use of point-of-view close-ups in a coherent narrative. The circular black mask is justified by the fact that the point-of-view shot shows what the older man is seeing from his telescope. However, masks were used in other films, too, as a way to make the audience understand how close-ups worked. Apparently, it was difficult for viewers to realise that what they were looking at was simply a closer view of something they could already see in the frame. We can be alternatively amused at the film (they’re showing a woman’s ankle! How dare they!), or annoyed by its voyeurism and objectification of female bodies. But what I also find interesting is how the film starts with a man aimlessly looking at the sky through a telescope, and ends up with him looking at the apparently really erotic view of a woman’s ankle, using the prop in an unexpected way.

And finally…

8) Cat Videos Have Been a Thing for Over a Century

3 Years after As Seen Through a Telescope, George Albert Smith presumably felt that audiences were ready to understand the cut from a medium shot to a close-up without needing a circular black mask to differentiate the closer shot. I find it quite appropriate that the first film to attempt this more sophisticated type of editing would be, well, a cat video.

Watch: Stellar Shot-by-Shot Breakdown of the ‘Raiders’ Desert Chase

Desert Chase in Raiders of the Lost Ark

Looking for a bit of inspiration about how to make a timeless action scene? Watch this stellar shot-by-shot breakdown video of the “Desert Chase” scene from Spielberg’s Raiders of the Lost Ark, made by Greek editor / filmmaker Antonios Papantoniou. Papantoniou makes many of these shot-by-shot breakdowns, but this is one of the best videos for a truly iconic action scene. The chase occurs in Raiders roughly halfway through when the Nazis try to take off with the Ark, and Indy (Harrison Ford) goes after them. This is a very intense, detailed breakdown discussing literally every last aspect – the shots, lenses, movements, everything. Dang, after this video, I just want to watch all the Indiana Jones films in a back-to-back marathon. Classics. ›››

So Bad They’re Good: The Best Worst Movies

So Bad They’re Good: The Best Worst Movies

We’ve all seen them and indulged in some really guilty pleasure movies, but the ones that truly matter are the ones that are so bad they’re fantastic. The release of the recent biographical comedy The Disaster Artist  revived audiences’ interests in some of their favorite worst movies, so let’s take a look back at some of the movies that are so bad you can’t help but go back for laughs.

The Room

  • Release: 2003
  • Director: Tommy Wiseau
  • Stars: Tommy Wiseau, Greg Sestero, Juliette Danielle, Phillip Haldiman
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 26% from Critics, 46% from Audiences

It’s arguably the best worst movie ever made, being one of the longest-running theatrical films with constant midnight screenings being held primarily in Los Angeles, along with other cities nationwide, in which audiences interact with the film in the same vein as The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Whether viewed as an intentional black comedy or a romantic drama, writer/director/producer/star Tommy Wiseau’s cult classic The Room‘s atrocious dialogue, bizarre plotting, bad CGI and terrible performances have made it one of the best films to rewatch strictly for laughs. The making of the film was detailed by star Greg Sestero in the non-fiction book The Disaster Artist, which was recently adapted into a film with James Franco directing and starring as the mysterious creator of the film. James’ brother Dave Franco portrays Sestero in the film.

Disaster Movie

  • Release: 2008
  • Directors: Jason Friedberg, Aaron Seltzer
  • Stars: Matt Lanter, Vanessa Minnillo, Gary “G Thang” Johnson, Kim Kardashian
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 1% from Critics, 19% from Audiences

The Movie franchise has always been held to the lowest standards, as its vulgar humor, bland parodies and trashy scripts have offended nearly every critic with each film seemingly earning fewer positive reviews and growing worse in quality. But the one film that was so bad it actually had laughably awful moments was the lowest-reviewed in the series, Disaster Movie. Set around a group of friends trying to save the Earth from multiple disasters, the film featured almost 50 various parodies, ranging from Hannah Montana to Indiana Jones to Enchanted, all of them poorly written and poorly performed in such an outrageous manner one can’t help but let out some laughs along the way.

Anaconda

  • Release: 1997
  • Director: Luis Llosa
  • Stars: Ice Cube, Jennifer Lopez, Jon Voight, Owen Wilson
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 38% from Critics, 24% from Audiences

Two musical artists, an animatronic snake and six Golden Raspberry nominations. Need I say more? Centered around a documentary crew taken hostage by a snake hunter, Anaconda was such an over-the-top entry into the creature feature adventure horror genre that as it went on and the film reached new heights, it became worse and yet more fun, with the ridiculous performances from Jon Voight (National Treasure, Ray Donovan), Ice Cube (21 Jump Street, Friday) and Jennifer Lopez (Monster-in-Law, The Back-Up Plan) making it a terribly entertaining outing.

Birdemic: Shock and Terror

  • Release: 2010
  • Director: James Nguyen
  • Stars: Alan Bagh, Whitney Moore, Janae Caster, Colton Osbourne
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 19% from Critics, 25% from Audiences

Many movies that appear on lists of films so bad they’re great are often straight rip-offs of other, better films. Not only was Birdemic one of the biggest on this list, but it was also one of the best on this list, thanks in most part to its atrocious special effects, as well as its poor writing and even worse sound design. Incorporating a romance story into a horror story a la Shaun of the Dead, the film follows a young couple traveling to northern California for a vacation that comes under attack by endless swarms of malicious birds attacking and killing people. The element that drives audiences to revisit this film time and again is the terrible special effects of the birds, nearly all of which are poorly animated vultures or JPEG images of birds randomly rotating 360 degrees, and this love/hate relationship with the film drove the filmmaker to return to the series with a sequel in 2013.

Idle Hands

  • Release: 1999
  • Director: Rodman Flender
  • Stars: Devon Sawa, Jessica Alba, Seth Green, Elden Henson
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 16% from Critics, 58% from Audiences

Two undead stoners, a hand possessed by demons and a soundtrack comprised mostly of The Offspring and David Garza, it must be the nineties. Named after the saying “idle hands do the devil’s work,” the film follows a stoner teenager whose hand becomes possessed by a demon on Halloween and goes on a killing spree, killing both his parents and his two best friends that come back to life as zombies. While there’s nothing inherently wrong with the film aside from endless cliches and ripoffs from previous films, it still is certainly a film where the humor is so dumb-minded and over-abundant that it registers as a bit of guilty pleasure for both comedy fans and horror fans alike.

The Wicker Man

  • Release: 2006
  • Director: Neil LaBute
  • Stars: Nicolas Cage, Leelee Sobieski, Ellen Burstyn, Frances Conroy
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 15% from Critics, 17% from Audiences

We all know that remakes can never top or come close to the original, but there are some remakes that fall incredibly short of the mark, especially 2006’s The Wicker Man, starring notoriously over-the-top actor Nicolas Cage as a policeman who travels to a neo-pagan island in search of his ex-fiancee’s missing daughter. While the original received widespread praise from critics for its chilling premise and shocking ending, the remake became a cult hit for its terrible dialogue and poor performances resulting in countless moments of unintentional hilarity that still entertains audiences many years after its release.

You Got Served

  • Release: 2004
  • Director: Chris Stokes
  • Stars: Marques Houston, Omari Grandberry, Jarell Houston, De’Mario Thornton
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 16% from Critics, 69% from Audiences

This is one of the few movies that not only still retains its cult following nearly 15 years after its release, but also become one of the most referenced and parodied movies on the list, with the plot becoming inconsequential compared to the highlight of the film: the dance competitions. The film’s story, which no one truly remembers, is about two friends with dreams of opening their own hip-hop dance and recording studio and must overcome struggles of friendship and win a dance tournament to fulfill that dream. While its story is bland and predictable, and it dialogue is quite often atrocious, the cast of mostly hip-hop performers do good with their characters and the dance scenes are thrilling enough to watch to make this an enjoyable terrible film.

Battlefield Earth

  • Release: 2000
  • Director: Roger Christian
  • Stars: John Travolta, Barry Pepper, Forrest Whitaker, Kim Coates
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 3% from Critics, 11% from Audiences

Back before it became popular to ridicule the Church of Scientology in the mainstream, actor John Travolta was living it up in the religious group, becoming one of its most prominent members, which was both a blessing and a curse for the actor, especially when it came time for him to try and bring his pet project, Battlefield Earth, to the big screen. Based on the first half of the 1982 novel written by the founder of the Church of Scientology, the film follows a human in an Earth ruled for 1,000 years by aliens who leads a rebellion to rescue his species from becoming mining slaves. This is one of the legitimate worst movies on this list for good reason, thanks to its ridiculous over-usage of the Dutch camera angle, in which most viewers practically stumbled over after watching it, unsure which way was up and forgetting how to walk, its terrible visual effects, including the infamous shooting the leg off the cow scene and awful performance from Travolta, with the film becoming a fan hated/favorite a while after its release.

The Master of Disguise

  • Release: 2002
  • Director: Perry Blake
  • Stars: Dana Carvey, Jennifer Esposito, Brent Spiner, Harold Gould
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 1% from Critics, 32% from Audiences

It’s a shame to see what has become of comedian Dana Carvey’s career. Once a star thanks to Saturday Night Live and the hit spin-off movie series Wayne’s World, his career status took a hit following the critically-hated but audience-adored The Master of Disguise, with many critics unfavorably comparing it to his former SNL co-star’s hit movie series, Austin Powers. In the film, Carvey plays Pistachio Disguisey (yes, you read that right), a bumbling waiter who discovers his family’s hidden secret of being able to transform into any persona they can imagine and must use this gift when his parents are kidnapped by an evil thief. Due to its routine story, family-oriented humor and insanely short running time, it was regarded by many critics as one of the worst films of the decade, but thanks to these bizarre range of character personas and outrageous performance from Carvey, it’s become a cult hit with audiences in the years since its release.

Troll 2

  • Release: 1990
  • Director: Drake Floyd
  • Stars: Michael Stephenson, George Hardy, Margo Prey, Connie McFarland
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 6% from Critics, 43% from Audiences

“They’re eating her, and then they’re gonna eat me. OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOODDD!”

Behind The Room, this is easily the best worst movie ever made. Not even accounting for the fact this film has zero connections to the first Troll film released in 1986, this film featured no actual trolls, atrocious writing and terrible performances from its cast. But all of these aspects added up to one of the campiest and most guiltily enjoyable films ever made. The film centers around a family traveling to a rural farming community for a vacation that is filled with vegetarian goblins who transform people into plants to eat.

Mortal Kombat

  • Release: 1995
  • Director: Paul W.S. Anderson
  • Stars: Christopher Lambert, Linden Ashby, Robin Shou, Bridgette Wilson
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 34% from Critics, 58% from Audiences

It’s certainly one of the more quality efforts in the video game movie genre, but if you need some kind of hint at how bad this movie truly was, look at the photo above, just look at that terrible hair on the top of Christopher Lambert’s head. Following three fighters mentored by the Japanese thunder-god Raiden in a battle against the evil sorcerer Shang Tsung in a tournament to save the Earth, the film was criticized for cheap visual effects and terrible dialogue, but became a smash with fans that, though disappointed in the bloodless victories in comparison to the games’ grisly deaths, enjoyed the film for its campy feel that still captured the fun and thrill of the games on the big screen.

White Chicks

  • Release: 2004
  • Director: Keenen Ivory Wayans
  • Stars: Marlon Wayans, Shawn Wayans, Terry Crews, Jamie King
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 15% from Critics, 55% from Audiences

The Wayans family have been one of the most financially successful and audience-adored group of artists in the film industry, and though not every movie made was enjoyable schlock, the one that’s still so dumb that it remains one of their best is the 2004 comedy White Chicks. Following two African-American FBI agents who must go undercover as white women to thwart a socialite kidnapping ring, the film was full out insanely predictable, yet hilarious, gags that still can be seen throughout social media memes today, namely Terry Crews’ car karaoke of “A Thousand Miles” by Vanessa Carlton, of which he recreated in the first season of Lip Sync Battle.

Batman & Robin

  • Release: 1997
  • Director: Joel Schumacher
  • Stars: George Clooney, Chris O’Donnell, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Uma Thurman
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 10% from Critics, 16% from Audiences

Bat nipples, endless ice puns and the death of the ’90s Batman franchise. Need I say more?

Godzilla

  • Release: 1998
  • Director: Roland Emmerich
  • Stars: Matthew Broderick, Jean Reno, Hank Azaria, Maria Pitillo
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 16% from Critics, 28% from Audiences

If time has told us anything, it’s that Americans can very rarely bring over properties from foreign countries without severely screwing them up and causing disgust from the source’s fan base. Though the second Americanized Godzilla proved to be a smash hit in 2014, helping to spawn the Monsterverse being developed by Legendary Pictures, the first attempt was an absolute travesty of a film according to both critics and audiences alike, especially those that were fans of the original Toho’s original franchise that debuted in 1954. Toho themselves hated the film so much that, rather than eliminate the film from its canon, it renamed the creature seen in this film as “Zilla” and featured it in future incarnations of their franchise, including Godzilla: Final Wars, in which this film’s iteration was quickly defeated, a not too subtle message from Toho discrediting this version of the titular monster. However, for those unfamiliar with the franchise, or those looking for mindless action, this was the perfect bad film to watch, as its visual effects were solid for the time and the performances from Azaria and Broderick help deliver a fun and terrible adventure.

Very Weird Trailer for ‘The Further Adventures of Walt’s Frozen Head’

The Further Adventures of Walt's Frozen Head

“I used to know and approve everything that went on around here…” So, this is one of the strangest trailers we’ve seen in a while. A few years back at the Sundance Film Festival, a funky little film titled Escape from Tomorrow premiered. They filmed it secretly at Disneyland without Disney’s involvement, and pretty much everyone expected it would never be released. But it did get released and is available on Netflix. Now five years later, another odd film has popped up that was filmed entirely in secret at Disney World in Orlando, without Disney being aware at all. It’s called The Further Adventures of Walt’s Frozen Head and involves a Disney employee discovering Walt Disney’s frozen head and kidnapping it for a day in the Magic Kingdom. Yeah, it’s weird. This doesn’t look good, but it does look like it’s another fun anti-Disney creation. ›››
