Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


The 1980s really seemed to be the age of imaginative films. Since et, videos full of rich imagination and witty dialogue have been appearing on the film screen. There was no 3D animation at that time, so it all depended on imagination to attract people. On the contrary, today’s blockbusters rely entirely on special effects, but they are not as attractive as the simple production in those days.

The story is that an unsuccessful inventor found a special Christmas present for his son. Find a smart little pet from the antique shop in Chinatown. But this pet has three taboos: can’t see the strong light, see the sun and die; Do not touch water, or you will copy madly; You can’t feed after midnight, or you’ll turn into a monster. Of course, his son didn’t deliberately violate these three rules, but there was an accident in the end. Hundreds of little monsters made a mess of Christmas in the town.

Spielberg (one of the executive directors) is said to be one of the initiators of the plot. That is to say, a terrorist version of ET should be said to be very successful. A very simple truth: clever things will become monsters if they don’t pay attention to them. This is a story that makes people uneasy about sleep and food forever.

In fact, the video has a lot of hints.

First of all, these little creatures are called Mogwai, which is obviously a Chinese monster. In other words, monsters are no different from pets, just depending on how you treat them.

An important role is the unsuccessful inventor. It implies that human beings are constantly trying to invent new things and let machines take the place of people to be responsible for work and household sundries. As a result, human beings gradually forget their responsibilities. And constantly alienated from the gifts of nature.

Those three taboos are also interesting. Monsters are afraid of sunshine + water is the origin of life + monsters are fed by people’s own negligence. Adding some philosophy to the fantasy can be said to have originality.
