Great article by Rosie Cima about why Hollywood movies tend to have an orange and blue color palette: http://priceonomics.com/why-every-movie-looks-sort-of-orange-and-blue/
I first noticed this with video games, when Shamus Young pointed out how Mass Effect 3 overused this palette. Once you notice it, you realize it’s everywhere and it makes it hard to watch modern movies.
Sex scenes are mostly shaded blue. Is this to rub it in on blue noses?
Huh. Probably more likely because most such scenes take place at night, and “blue” usually equals ‘night” in the movies.
A blogger noticed this phenomenon four/five years ago. It is interesting and now I will again notice it. : )
Yeah. I was watching the last “Harry Potter” movie the other day, and this phenomenon (especially with the blue) became really annoying.
Mr. Skin to the rescue
