Cult Films by Kubrick, Tarantino & Wes Anderson Re-imagined as 8-Bit Video Games

Or maybe it’s a nostalgic do-over of a childhood spent watching great films turned into terrible games and your favorite games turned into terrible films. 8-Bit Cinema imagines popular and classic movies turned into NES-era console games, with the movie’s plot imagined as a “perfect run,” as gamers call it. Their version of Guardians of the Galaxy (watch it here) quotes Megaman, Capcom’s 1987 hit game that is still spawning sequels, and confines its action to a platform shooter, which, in a way, describes James Gunn’s film. (But dig that 8-bit version of “The Pina Colada Song,” man!). The film adapts too well to a video game, and that may be its problem. Things get more interesting when Dutton’s creative team tackles films in the cult canon.

Liz Magic Laser “The Thought Leader” 2015, Single-channel video, 9'22'' In her latest work The Thought Leader (2015), a 10-minute single channel video, New York based artist Liz Magic Laser combines the format and particular uniformity of the TED conferences with Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s dark novel Notes from the Underground (1864).


A young boy, Alex Ammerman, recites Dostoyevsky’s text speaking in the most cheerful way about an individual on the margins of modern society and the effects modern life has on the human condition. Introduced by Jens Hoffmann Jens Hoffmann: What made you combine the format of a TED talk, a young boy and parts of Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s novel Notes from the Underground? Liz Magic Laser: I became interested in working with the TED Talk format because it is a highly cultivated performance of one’s hyper-professional yet “all too human” self.

JH: Can you tell me more about the whole TED phenomenon and it’s ideology? Credits. Western Spaghetti by PES. Cult Animation. Cahiers Du Cinéma (officiel) - Vidéos. MoneyLEGS A F Schepperd.

Bozar Cinema: Jack Smith

The films of Jack Smith (USA, 1932-1989), along with the artist’s complete body of work - including photographs, collages, drawings, slide shows, costumes, sculptures and props that were used in his performances - represent one of the most seminal and important oeuvres in twentieth century art. Born in Ohio and arriving in New York in 1953, Jack Smith transformed the detritus of post-war downtown New York into filmic tableaux vivants of exotic glamour and polysexual fantasy.
