Flim Weakly- Apocalypse Now


Jean Luc Godard once said “Film is truth, 24 frames per second.” Now, I don’t know what that means, but I do know it’s wrong. Film cannot be truth, because it is made of film, and truth is made of emotions or something. I also don’t know who Jean Luc Godard is, or what 24 frames have to do with it, as frames are usually found in Asda, for pictures and photos to sit in.

Although, actually, films are made of pictures, aren’t they? So maybe that’s what he meant, in which case, he’s very clever, even if he’s from somewhere that isn’t where I’m from.

So, what, in fact, is a film?

Well, it’s a thing you go to see when it’s too early to see it on tv. It even comes out before the dvd. And it costs three times as much as watching it for free, which is really stupid. Unless it has nudity in it.

But not every film does.

Bambi” didn’t.

Neither did “Spaceballs” and that has ‘balls’ in the title.

Welcome to Flim Weakly.

This week….


Apocalypse Now

A drunk guy who looks like Charlie Sheen is told to get on a boat and travel for ages. He says “alright” and then gets on a boat and travels for ages. Morpheus from ‘The Matrix’ goes with him, except it isn’t Morpheus because he’s young and Morpheus was older.

There are some helicopters playing Classic FM, a bit where things go boom, another bit where things go ‘wooarr’ and then they get off the boat and kill a fat man who talks bollocks because he’s war tired.

Marks out of 10…
