Posts Tagged ‘Sei Shonagon’

Years ago, around 12 years, I had a website called the Bathroom of Darkness. I mostly wrote movie reviews for old movies. At the time I was working part-time for a video store. Through all the years I’ve noticed some really weird things about movies. I’d like to resurrect my movie reviews and movie lists.

I had lists. They were my Sei Shonagon moment. The lists were compilations of my observations like, the worst super hero movies ( any Fantastic 4), top favorite holiday lists ( Hebrew Hammer) and other things that were wacky (Frogs is really about reptiles?!). I had a list I posted every year about movies where the turkey was a character. I don’t mean a live animal either. I’m talking about a dead, cooked turkey.

There are a lot of movies out there that do weird things. Did you ever see Mr. and Mrs. Smith? It was a movie starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. They played a husband and wife that ┬ádidn’t know they worked for rival spy agencies. Sounds like an awesome action movie right? It was really a conversation about how the lack of communication is the major contributing factor to divorce. I’ll get into that more later.

Demolition Man is a pretty great science fiction action movie with Sylvester Stallone. The main character has a hard time asking people for help and always thinks he’s right. The movie is really about learning to ask for help and learning to trust the people around him.

Now, those are just two examples. I’ve also discussed subliminal zombies also known as horror movies incorrectly marked. Love it. This is what I think about as a writer. It would be easy to write about all the horrible things in the Star Wars prequel movies, but I’d rather tell you about Father Goose, with Leslie Carone.

Talk to you soon!
