Clip joint: Giant people

28 September 2011 8:51 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Hollywood loves a big, scary beast, but what about super-sizing the humble human? Clip joint looks up magic mega-moments

Tinseltown has been convincingly developing the magnificence of the mighty in the animal kingdom for decades. A simple shift in perspective transformed King Kong (1933) from a large ape into a monster. Similarly the terror in Tremors (1990) lies not in the idea that we're being chased by sand worms, but that they're half-a-mile long.

Hollywood likes to super-size, to make things larger than life, but when it comes to clumsy old humanity it's much harder to make size scary. The Amazing Colossal Man (1957) looked corny, Allison Hayes's 50ft Woman looked bored, even on the attack. Jason and The Argonauts's (1963) bronze behemoth Talos had the stuff, but he was technically an automaton.

Human giants are smaller, sillier and far less malevolent. Their stomping ground is the cartoon or the gentle family comedy. »
