I watched pirates first. Love the split screen!

Oh my gosh these are wonderful. I started doing that silent gasping cackling thing immediately when I saw Spoon Shades Morpheus at the Matrix one.

The bottle thingie around 1:55 in The Matrix one is actually really well done. Creative!

-1000 for what is essentially blackface in the Fifth Element trailer.

I don't remember that. Would you elucidate?

There's a guy acting at a couple points as one of the big mercenary aliens that Gary Oldman's character is working with in the film, and they slathered on a mix of brown and black greasepaint on his face for that character as the cheapo version. I have no idea whether and what specific translation of shittiness there is in Russian pop culture compared to the American history of blackface, but it was definitely a sorta "uh..." feeling watching it from here. They slather on a lot of other colors of greasepaint in some of the trailers too (including the blue opera singer in that one) but blueface doesn't exactly have the same toxic baggage.

Ah, I gotcha. I thought they were referring to the portrayal of the actual black characters.
