Two expensive videos for two lacklustre songs

Earlier today, Iggy Azalea and Ariana "Capuccino" Grande unleashed their new videos and set them upon YouTube like hungry puppies. They look amazing - big budget, glossy, effects-laden affairs of the sort we'd forgotten before Lady Gaga turned up and revitalised the oeuvre (before dropping the ball completely and making unwatchable 12-minute mini movies about her vagina, but that's another story).

Each clip is ripped off wholesale a loving tribute to a cult Hollywood film. Ariana's Break Free harks back to sci-fi sex romp Barbarella (see also: Kylie's Put Yourself In My Place and Betty Boo's Where Are You Baby?); while in Black Widow, Iggy and featured artist Rita Ora make an oddly bloodless homage to The House Of Blue Leaves scene from Tarantino's Kill Bill.

Both videos look great. It's just a shame the songs aren't as memorable.
