I’m not 100% positive why I rented this. The trailer looked good and I knew I was going to have to read it (it’s Swedish) but something just felt good about it and I downloaded it and started watching it and – well…… this was almost as boring as ONLY GOD FORGIVES.… if that’s fucking even possible. This Swedish woman, that I find attractive, stares at things for an hour and a half and then falls in love with a brutal murderer for no real reason at all. END. Well. OK.
For real. That blond chick there. We start off with her in an office working. Then she heads home, in silence and comes across a dead body so, like we all would do, she doesn’t call the cops and stares it it for a good minute and then goes to a cocktail party. There, she gets hit on but doesn’t reciprocate and heads home where she stares at some dude violently beating the shit out of another dude. Later, she goes to church and does some silent praying and gets hit on by another dude. Even later she shows us her Cooch and then tracks down the serial killer and they have a big fight. Then they move in together. Fantastic!
This was really boring and so is this post so let’s talk about something else. About a year or so ago, a friend and i set up a blog called IF THERE’S ONLY TEN PEOPLE IN THE THEATER, DON’T SIT NEAR ME, ASSHOLE where we stepped aside from our movie writin’ and went to town on how stupid people are. We actually got some good reception and did some fun posts but then, as things do, it got tiring doing two blogs and we kind of petered out. Seeing as how I have been struggling with Movie Writin’ lately, I was thinking about firing some more content up out there but it’s hard to do two or even three blogs.
So… would anyone else be interested in writing out there? I know we are all, mostly, movie writers (and such) (and in my case – an idiot) but this is a chance to step out and rail on something besides movies if you had that itch. If you’re interested, let me know here or there or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I would LOVE to set you up as an author or editor – your choice. I’m pretty easy – there’s no deadlines and you would never have to check with me, just go post something whenever you felt like it. I would love it if there were, like, 20 of us out there writing. I know time is precious and there’s so little of it but just think, if there were 20 of us we would only have to individually post something once a month and there would be a good amount of content.
