Rob from The Country Fair and the Circus here. Have you seen the trailer for W. yet? Yeah it does come off as an extended SNL skit with big name actors, but I admit it did make me smile. However, that's just an aside.
What I really wanted to talk about is an interesting article (with accompanying slide-show) on Slate.com today about the evolution of the Hollywood fight. This is spurred by the fact that some critics called the fights in The Dark Knight rather incomprendable. Personally I didn't find them to be that problematic, but the shaky-cam crazy nature of modern fight scenes has never bothered me too much.
But how about you? Fight scenes are a staple of the action genre. Do you like where they're going? Does the hectic nature of the camera help enforce the dizziness of the fight or does it just make you dizzy?
And for fun, I pose this question to you: What is your favorite fight scene? After much thought I've posted mine below.
