We often focus on the central themes of a movie. The central characters. Scenes that are central to the plot. Well, what happens when you take all of this central-centricity to its logical conclusion? You get Halfway Cinema
- a new blog dedicated to screen-capping the central frame of a movie, the exact centre, midway through the running time.
It's a cool little project and, like The Page 69 Test
before it, the results are always interesting for one reason or another. Check out a few below to see what we mean:EQUILIBRIUM (2002)
[0:53:25]EDWARD SCISSORHANDS (1990)
[0:52:26]FATHER OF THE BRIDE (1991)
[0:52:32]THE TERMINATOR (1984)
[0:53:33]WHEN HARRY MET SALLY… (1989)
There are a lot more on the site already, so head over and take a look! It's interesting what moments are captured and what the pivotal moment says (or in some cases doesn't say) about the film as a whole. Worth a bookmark.
