This is the first of many upcoming posts discussing the world of cinema.
It’ll be an awesome road trip.
I am going to talk about movies. Why? Because I’m tired of muttering to myself about movies. That’s a sure sign of a madman wanting to become sane. Let’s talk about movies.
I want to become a filmmaker. A director. And I know that no director should live in a hole and make movies that way. That way, you only invent creepy things that scare everybody and likely please nobody but yourself.(Manos: the Hands of Fate.)
Movies are to be analyzed. They are to be studied. A cake would taste far more delicious if you knew how each ingredient worked with the next. Otherwise, you’ll stuff yourself, too happy to stop and die.
“Oh, well, since I’m going to die,
I might as well have one more piece of pie.
Chomp, oh, my…
Gulp, Slurp. Bye.”
But rambling like this serves no use on its own. I could just as easily talk to myself and achieve the same effect if I just want to vent. No, I need to hear from YOU guys. You guys are the people who watch the movies. Does it matter if you made the movie if nobody watched it? If one guy noticed something subtle, is it still a failure because nobody else got it?
So let’s go on this road trip. And it will be a fun ride. I’ll drive. But somebody got to pack the lunches. NOT ME!
