3D floorplans of famous movies

3D floorplans of famous movies

I’m a big fan of movies and of visiting the very places where movies were shot. I always find it amazing to see or be in the very spot these iconic moments in film took place.

Many movies and famous scenes, however, took place on a sound stage or on a set that is usually simply destroyed as soon as the shooting is done to make room for the next production.

Enter Expedia who commissioned 3D floorplans for many famous movies such as The Shining, Goldfinger, Lost in Translation, Pretty Woman, and The Hangover. For places that actually exist, they also have links to how to reserve these very rooms.

Film and furniture also covered these layouts and even sells prints of some of them.

No End House

No End House

NoEnd House is an amature creepy-pasta short story from a few years back. It tells of a haunted house that has 6 progressively scarier rooms. Supposedly nobody who has made it to room six has ever been seen again.

The short story has a great premise, but many argue that Channel Zero’s version is an even better telling of the story. The six part series starts with them finding out about the haunted house and taking a visit. What happens next is some good story telling, but I thought the final chapters were a bit weaker than the first ones. The first few episodes are definitely worth a watch.

On a tangent, I think this is what Hollywood should be doing these days: taking promising but flawed ideas and working them into great ones. I understand why studios rehash tried and true IP’s like Star Trek, Star Wars, Marvell, etc. They always sell. But it doesn’t demonstrate any real talent to try and reboot old classics with tropey time travel, alternate universe takes, harmful revisionist cannons, or even political/social agendas. Most of the time they only succeeded in ruining critical themes, diluting, damaging, and turning classics into distasteful cash grabs. Lets wake up here Hollywood – there’s lots of great ideas out there if you have the eyes to see them.
