  • INCREDIBLY CLEVER

  • Is there a stream for this? Or do you have to download?

  • p

    this is intresting

  • Great video. I like the idea of analyzing the interpretation more than the original subject matter to help provide insight. The videos of the jungle book were very eerie.

    Wow.

  • K

    Weren’t all of the disney animated films directed by the same guy? I think that makes it more lazy than anything… (or maybe he thought he nailed those sequences the first time)

  • bob

    could you put it on youtube, or some quicker video sharing site?

  • wooow, very interesting…

  • Greg Peters

    Amazing video. I like the original subject matter more than the idea of analyzing the interpretation.

  • Just open http://oliverlaric.com/m/versionsversions.mov
    And save it to your computer… 115MB

  • As far as the Disney films using the same poses, compositions, and animation. I wouldn’t really call it lazy. I’d call it pretty smart, animation can be time consuming. As long as it doesn’t hurt the tone or feel of the story why not reuse stuff. There’s no point in re-inventing the wheel.

    • you wouldn’t see this in a miyazaki film!

  • The thing that I find most strange is that the composition of the mattes remains the same – right down to the twists in the tree.

  • Joe

    Love the Jungle Book…great connection here Oliver, would have never guessed.

  • It’s the same ordeal every time we see these regurgitated movies done over again and again. Nice find.

Director Jordan Peele’s Alternate Ending to “Get Out” (Leaked Video Clip)

Spoiler Alert: Do not click below if you haven’t seen “Get Out” yet! I wasn’t completely mind-blown by this movie but I really enjoyed it and I’m excited to see what director Jordan Peele makes next (apparently his next “social thriller” is slated for 2019). I don’t want to say too much but I thought the end of the film was unexpected and satisfying. Now an alternate version has leaked and it’s interesting because it’s also not what I thought was going to happen. Watch the full clip below.
