We all have such high hopes and standards about entertainment video’s and The 5th Wave for me was no exception. It reminded me of Pink Floyd’s Division Bell music video you can listen and watch below.
The 5th Wave is a new film out about the occupation of earth by a race known only as The Others. They came from space in a flying disc shaped space craft and over a short period of time attack the people of earth in waves.
When you watch Pink Floyd’s High Hopes video you can see similar cinematic features in The 5th Wave. The Teddy Bear and wheels both are included in the movie and the official music video. Why is this do you think?
In a classic alien film They Live we are introduced to special glasses that see the world the way it really is and the 5th Wave taps into this too. With every new film out of the same genre there is some sort of homage happening. Out of respect perhaps?
Equally object’s like the bear and wheel has symbolism hinting similar expectations and representations. The wheel is powerful symbol to adults and children as is the Teddy Bear. One is about power and the other is about coming of age. This sort of framing objects is used regularly in motion pictures.
The balloons half filled with helium also means something. The Pink Floyd video focuses on these balloons, the balloons have symbols on them, the same symbols used on PSY Op cards. These cards are like the one’s we see used to test psychic soldier’s in the film and book The Men Who Stare At Goats.
The balloons float but do not float away, they just merrily bounce down the conclave corridors. These balloons were sold for profit and did so by using less costly helium. The floating when attached with high hopes also gives clear messages about other lotherius methods used to make money out of the youth generation.
The bell is replaced by the cross. One is much heavier than the other. The bell makes a sound, the cross is wood, agar wood is known as the scent from heaven. The bell ringer Quazimodo also gave rise to the cinema. The Spanish gypsies made him the King Joker for being the ugliest man in the village and crowned him as such in front of the church gates.
The politics still exists in everything relative to the time of its initial release. Chancers who use the human resources available on the planet at any given time. We are brought up to respect our elected leaders. As indeed we are given two sides of the coin to flip.
However everything is not as simple as that. Binary opposites only create more confusion. The global consciousness is already decided according to those of any real influence. The Media splash out regardless of all the recession proofing spoke about all these years.
The division’s only weighs heavier if we allow it. Like Aristotle was were all given the same choice, carry on carrying on and pay the price or accept the lifeline when offered out to you. Why is there only 2 options do you think?
