In the past 48 hours I’ve seen 5 full movies and loads more of other…..not sure why or how but all of them are pretty cool.
Sunday night we bought tickets to True Grit…..
AWESOME movie, which was a 1969 movie starring John Wayne…..
…..then snuck into “Little Fockers” for a half hour to wait for……
THE GREEN HORNET! (I guess “Little Fockers” means “Now they are the Parents”… which doesn’t do the title justice AT ALL!!…. It says “First it was her parents, then it was his parents, now THEY are the parents”
I loved the Green Hornet (writting by Seth Rogen which is cool). Entertaining, moreover, I want everything that Kato made- guns, cars, the lattes! Fun stuff.
Green Hornet was also a remake……It used to star Bruce Lee at Kato…..
Then I came home and caught the tail end of Edward Norton in “25 Hours”. This one blew my mind and gave me agonizing dreams. Everyone I knew in the dream had killed other people- me, friends and family, everyone- really weird. Anyways “25 Hours” is about a dealer, Edward Norton, who gets caught selling kilos of weed and tells the story of his last day before he reports to jail. The ending doesn’t end which makes it agonizing and a terrible movie to see before you go to bed- like I said your dreams will be messed up. But regardless, it’s a cool movie.
Upon waking up, I decided to watch Bansky’s “Exit Through the Gift Shop”, a movie about street art and one man taking advantage of it’s glory and well, it’s artistic value. I loved the movie dearly- couldn’t take my eyes off of it- but realized how people (some people call them artists) make money from brainwashing people. Everyone is told what to like or look up to, either by what their friends/family, media, magazines, or even schooling tell them. Though it seems there’s no way to avoid this, taking advantage of “a current trend” with intent to promote oneself, with money and fame as a goal, is despicable. But it is who we are, one way or another, kinda, in a way. I guess that’s what the movie tries to explain.
One thing “Mr. Brainwash” is missing: He doesn’t actually do any of the artwork himself. He didn’t train himself. He didn’t work for it. He copied EVERYONE and their style. He reintroduced a trend and had other people to the work for it. It was obnoxious. I’m so grateful for all the hours, days and weeks I’ve struggle to get the ZAM going. It’s what makes it cool.
Watch the movie to see what I mean…..
