Skinemax is Koyaanisqatsi (or visual poem) for the children of the 80’s. It is described as long form entertainment for short attention spans. I’m not sure if that is correct or not, just that this was too cool not to share with you.
This hour long video adventure uses some very interesting music to tack you through a visual trip that marries all the greatest movies from the 80’s and early 90’s. I could never try to list all of the movies that are woven into this film, but here is just the short list I can remember:
Transformers: The movie (The real one, not the Michael Bay one)
Big Trouble in Little China
Fast Times at Ridgemont High
The Adventures of Baron Von Munchousen
Pee Wee’s Big Adventure
Better off dead
Flight of The Navigator
and a lot more!
Be warned: This video is awesome, but if you start watching it, you will not accomplish anything for the next hour…
for a generation raised on late night television and B-movie VHS tapes. It’s . An hour long VJ odyssey, it will move your body and warp your mind.
A nostalgic look back at a half remembered childhood growing up in the 80s and early 90s, Skinemax takes a close look at the culture of that era. The images that motivated, delighted, and terrified us on the silver screen, set to propulsive modern music that pines for a simpler time.
