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. A Star Is Born cannot be truth, because it’s 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.
Neither did “Spaceballs” and that has ‘balls’ in the title.
Welcome to FLIM WEAKLY.
This week, I watched a film based on a film based on a film based on a film.
A Star Is Born
I thought it was going to be a sci-fi film because it had Star in the title, but it isn’t.
It’s actually about the dude from The Hangover finding Lady GaGa in a gay bar or something, except she doesn’t look like Lady GaGa, she looks like a normal person and then he takes her home with him and makes her famous, using her mouth, which can make music.
He gets pissed up all the time. Lady GaGa starts to wear Lady GaGa clothes and gets really famous. The Hangover guy pisses himself and is so gutted about it that he dies.
She sings a bit and he comes back to life but not really.
