What would happen if giant insects from the future attacked an Alamo defended by the stars of the greatest westerns of Hollywood?
We have an answer.
Yeah! That’s what happens in “Far Alamo: Your Western Heroes vs. the Bugs from Starship Troopers.” Cinematographer Fabrice Mathieu has achieved something amazing. Think of those video mashups of masterful film editing in which Hollywood stars strut, stroll, streak or sneak through the old Penn Station (“Penn Station, But Deliver Us from Grand Central“), or in which Rita Hayworth dances, through clips spliced into the more recent hit song “Stayin’ Alive” from the movie “Saturday Night Fever.”
The folks at the website Kuriositas write:
Well, this is cool. Fabrice Mathieu has done it again. Known for his unusual (and unlikely) movie mashups, this time Fabrice takes us to the Wild West and to the far-flung edges of our galaxy. A host of western heroes (John Wayne, Yul Brynner, Clint Eastwood and so on!) face off with the horde of bugs from the movie Starship Troopers. How he does it I don’t really want to know but this latest mashup is one of his best!
