This segment is to try and prove to people that I don’t only watch horseshit, non-mainstream movies and that I’m not totally insane. LOL
A slightly different post this time as I watched this in the living room while THE MRS. did some bills and such behind me at her desk. This is how the conversation went regarding this movie.
(About twenty minutes in) MRS. THE IPC: Is this any good?
ME: Not really.
MRS. THE IPC: It doesn’t sound like it.
ME: I hope it gets better. It’s boring as fuck.
ME: Apparently, in Bangkok, the sun never shines, no one has invented indoor lighting, every single person moves in extremely slow motion, stares at everything and no one knows how to move their neck. Or their arms when they walk.
MRS. THE IPC: Sounds lame.
(70 minutes later – after MRS. THE IPC has finished her workout and I have finished the movie)
MRS. THE IPC: Well, how was it?
ME: EH – it was OK…
MRS. THE IPC: Was it worth the rent-it-before-its-in-theaters price?
MRS. THE IPC: Sucky!
ME: Well… people expecting another DRIVE (like me) are probably going to be pretty dis-a-fucking-pointed.
ME: I’ve never seen so many people staring at things or into the air or other people.
MRS. THE IPC: That’s not good.
ME: I mean, out of 90 minutes, 68 of them are probably shots of someone staring at something, forlornly or pensively.
MRS. THE IPC: Are you going to write about it?
ME: Probably just the “Quickie” thing. There are a LOT of people passionately waiting to see this. They will be either eating this up or praising it like crazy. Lots of people love DRIVE.
ME: I didn’t love it and then —–> THAT’S HOW IT ENDED????? COME ON!!!
MRS. THE IPC: Would I have liked it?
ME: Nope – not one bit. I appreciate how it was made but you would have hated it.
MRS. THE IPC: I lub.
ME: I lub u!
