A few night back my friend Tara had a bunch of friends come over for a bad movie night. In the past she has screened Xanadu, Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Harts Club Band, but on this night she was to screen the feature film of The Spice Girls called Spice World. I remember this not being good when I first saw it. But after a few years past I really enjoyed it this time around. Plus my musical tastes have changed a lot since I was 15 so that might something to do with it as well. Although I have always been a fan of their hit Wannabe and think their music video helped inspire Russian Ark and Birdman or The unexpected virtue of ignorance because it was all done in one take or made to look like it was. You can read my full list over on That Moment In below.
Here is the video for their breakout hit ‘Wannabe’ and tell me you don’t think it looks like it was done in one long take
You know something. It’s an OK film. It’s harmless and doesn’t take itself seriously. Sure, it’s not aged well but it’s just harmless fun. I’ve seen worse films like Sgt. Pepper.
