#backflick ist eine Internet-Meme, die grade bei Twitter stattfindet und da dass hier ein Filmblog ist, erkläre ich mal kurz, was eine Meme ist: Quasi eine Idee, die bei vielen Leuten zündet und durch die Blogs wandert, dort geremixed und gemasht und neu interpretiert wird, das ganze viele tausend Male. Bekannte Memes sind die Rickroll (kein Link, hihi) oder auch der Dramatic Chipmunk. Soviel dazu.

Die Meme Backflick erzählt nun Filme nach, nur rückwärts. Das Ganze fand seinen Anfang vor drei Tagen auf Reddit: „If you watch the movie ‘Jaws’ backwards, it’s a movie about a shark that keeps throwing up people until they have to open a beach.“ Dort zählt man derzeit über 1000 Kommentare und von hier ab wird es unglaublich großartig. Aus den Comments:

If you watch LOST backwards you realize it’s the same thing as if you would watch if forward.

If you watch Rambo backwards, it’s Sylvester Stallone healing people with his magical bullet vacuum.

If you watch Scarface backwards, it’s about a man who gives up cocaine and crime to follow his dream of becoming a dishwasher to earn enough money so he can visit Cuba.

Oder auch diese beiden Comments, traumhaft:

If you watch Fight Club backwards, you see Ed Norton turn from a crazy streetperson into a successful productive member of society.

If you watch American History X backwards, you see Ed Norton turn from a successful productive member of society into a crazy streetperson.


If you watch the Internet backwards its a story about how a huge population of idiots was overthrown by a small group of highly intelligent and sexless geeks.

Der war jetzt zwar nicht Film-related, aber trotzdem großartig. Hier noch ein paar, danach müsst Ihr selber lesen. Fantastische Idee, gibt’s mittlerweile auch mit Games.

Alien – lone woman chases strange alien in order to resuscitate crew so that they can store large spiders inside eggs

The Wrestler is a dude who stops wrestling and tries to fix his life, but fails and goes back to wrestling. Oh, wait…

LOTR: short guy gets cool ring from volcano spends three films walking home

Terminator: Woman creates robot skeleton, then relentlessly pursues it. It slowly grows a human skin and escapes into future.

Wall-E: evil robot exiles humanity to space, breaks up with his girlfriend, trashes earth in fury.

Und hier noch der Überknaller zum Schluß:

If you watch The Curious Case of Benjamin Button backwards it’s about a normal person

Das ist so dermaßen großartig, mein Tag ist sowas von gelaufen.

    Diese Backwards geschichten verfolge ich auch seitdem ein Bekannter mir diese vor ein paar Tagen an den Kopf warf.

    Mein Favorit zu den Games:
    “Earthbound: Ness has an acid trip, goes to bed.”
    Jetzt würde ich natürlich gerne wieder Earthbound spielen.

    Bei den Filmen kann ich mich noch nicht entscheiden.

    Putting The Cost Of The ESA’s Rosetta Mission In Perspective

    "So what do we get for our €1.4bn? Rosetta is both an astounding feat of engineering (catapulting a tonne of spacecraft across millions of kilometres of space and ending up in orbit around a comet just 4 km across) and an extraordinary opportunity for science (allowing us to examine the surface of a lump of rock and ice which dates from when the Solar System formed).

    Like a lot of blue-skies science, it’s very hard to put a value on the mission. First, there are the immediate spin-offs like engineering know-how; then, the knowledge accrued, which could inform our understanding of our cosmic origins, amongst other things; and finally, the inspirational value of this audacious feat in which we can all share, including the next generation of scientists.

    Whilst those things are hard to price precisely, in common with other blue-skies scientific projects, Rosetta is cheap. At €1.4bn, developing, building, launching and learning from the mission will cost about the same as 4.2 Airbus A380s—pretty impressive when you consider that it’s an entirely bespoke robotic spacecraft, not a production airliner. On a more everyday scale, it’s cost European citizens somewhere around twenty Euro cents per person per year since the project began in 1996.

    Rosetta has already sent us some stunning images of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko and today’s landing will, with any luck, provide us with our first close-up glimpse of the chaotic surface of this dirty snowball. If you’re a sci-fi fan, then, you might consider the mission to have been worth its price tag just for the pictures. The total cost for the Rosetta mission is about €3.50 per person in Europe; based on the average cinema ticket price in the UK (€8.50), it has cost less than half of what it will cost for you to go to see Interstellar.”
