T he Minions are Approaching The highly anticipated prequel to the Despicable Me franchise, Minions, is coming to theaters this summer. This movie is an origin story for the lovable, loyal, and highly incompetent minions who stole the show in the first two movies. The main story has three minions, Kevin, Stuart, and Bob looking for a new master for them and their fellow minions to devote themselves to.
W hen this movie is described as an origin story, it couldn’t be more literal. The movie opens with the evolution of the minions from single celled organisms to the Hostess Twinkie shaped creatures they grow to be and shows them continually losing their masters in the most unfortunate ways.
Kevin, Bob and Stuart.
T he main action of the movie will focus on the 1960’s where the trio of Kevin, Stuart, and Bob cross paths with the world’s first female super villain, Scarlet Overkill. The trio travels between New York and London. But, as things often get with minions, the situation quickly becomes a series of complicated disasters and Kevin, Stuart, and Bob must act quickly to keep all of their fellow minions, who are anxiously awaiting their return in Antarctica, from getting wiped out. Steve Carell, who voiced Gru in the first tow movies in the series, will not be in the prequel. However, Sandra Bullock will be voicing Scarlet Overkill and other actors such as Michael Keaton, Alison Janney, and Jon Hamm will also be providing voices for the new movie. While Minions was originally scheduled to be released during Christmas 2014, it was pushed back to this summer because of concern about the number of family films released over Christmas.
Minion official trailer
I nstead Minions will be released between Independence Day 2 and Superman Vs. Batman, allowing it the best chance of box office success. While the minions were a vital part of the first two Despicable Me movies, they were clearly in supporting roles. The characters speak in their own gibberish sounding language that occasionally has intelligible words like “banana” or “gelato”.
T he challenge for this movie will be how to allow the minions to step out as leads of a movie with their limited language. Judging from the most recently released trailer, the creators have decided to double down on the slapstick antics of the minions and just let the minions tell the story in their own sweet, well-meaning, and bumbling way. Letting the minions be themselves is good news for fans of the creatures and moviegoers.
Universal Animation is looking for another huge box-office win after the first two movies in this series have done so well both in the U.S. and internationally. They are taking a bit of a risk in letting Steve Carrel leave the franchise and focusing instead on the minions, who by definition were part of the background. Big studios are generally taking fewer risks and making less interesting movies over the past several years.
Even though this film is technically part of a franchise, Universal should be applauded for taking things in a new direction and turning their storytellers loose. Minions promises to be one of the highlights of the summer movie season for adults and children alike.
Graffiti in New York City has had a local, countrywide, and international influence. Originating in the New York City Subway and spreading beyond it, it is regarded by the city’s authorities as an act of vandalism, while some view it as an art form.
Growth of graffiti culture.
Modern graffiti began in Philadelphia, in the 1960s.
Shortly after the death of Charlie Parker (nicknamed “Yardbird” or “Bird”) in 1955, graffiti began appearing around New York with the words “Bird Lives” but it was not for about one and a half more decades that graffiti started to be noticeable in NYC. Around 1970-71 the center of graffiti culture shifted from Philadelphia to New York City, especially around Washington Heights, where writers such as TAKI 183 and Tracy 168 started to gain media attention. Using a naming convention in which they would add their street number to their nickname, they “bombed” a train with their work, letting the subway take it throughout the city.
Bubble lettering was popular among writers from the Bronx, but was replaced with a new “wildstyle”, a term coined by Tracy 168.
Graffiti tags started to grow in style and size. Notable names from that time are: DONDI, Lady Pink, Zephyr, Julio 204, FRIENDLY FREDDIE, STAY HIGH 149, SUPER KOOL 223, HONDO 1, JAPAN 1, JOE 182, MOSES 147, SNAKE 131, LEE 163d, STAR 3, PHASE 2, PRO-SOUL, LIL HAWK, BARBARA 62, EVA 62, CAY 161 and JUNIOR 161.
Graffiti writing was growing competitive and artists desired to see their names seen in all of the city.
Around 1974 writers like Tracy 168, CLIFF 159 and BLADE ONE started to create works with more than just their names: they added illustrations, full of scenery and cartoon characters, to their tags, laying the groundwork for the mural-car. The standards from the early 70s continue to evolve, and the late 1970s and early 1980s saw new styles and ideas. As graffiti spread beyond Washington Heights and the Bronx, a graffiti movement was born. Fab 5 Freddy (Friendly Freddie, Fred Brathwaite) was one of the most important graffiti figures of that era. He notes how differences in spray technique and letters between Upper Manhattan and Brooklyn began to merge in the late 70s: “out of that came ‘Wild Style’. Fab 5 Freddy is often credited with helping to spread the influence of graffiti and rap music beyond its early foundations in the Bronx, and making links in the mostly white downtown art and music scenes. It was around this time that the established art world started becoming receptive to the graffiti culture for the first time since Hugo Martinez’s Razor Gallery in the early 1970s.
The growth of graffiti in New York City was helped by its subway system, whose accessibility and interconnectedness facilitated the rise of a community of subway graffiti writers and muralists.
It was also aided by the budgetary restraints on New York City, which limited its ability to remove graffiti and perform transit maintenance. Mayor John Lindsay declared the first war on graffiti in 1972, but it would be a while before the city was able and willing to dedicate enough resources to that problem to start impacting the growing subculture.
