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’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, War. What is it good for? What is it? And where?
A big bald testicle, who likes jewellery, starts a fight with a bunch of different superhero things, who all hate him because he’s foreign or something. Things happen really loud, for a really long time, mostly in a place that isn’t where I’m from, and because I don’t like things that are unfamiliar (like elevators, or skin on skin contact) I didn’t really get this, I’ll be honest.
I kept waiting for Superman to show up and save the world, but he didn’t, which is a bit of a con.
Or Wonder Woman. She’s fit.
I should have watched Wonder Woman, probably, but my Mum said I’m not allowed to watch it anymore, because I get loud. But, anyway, I think this is in two parts, because it ends without ending.
A bit like Les Miserables.
