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. Dumbo 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 saw a circus at the cinema. Which is weird, because it’s a cinema and didn’t smell like hay and animal shit. It just smelled of popcorn. And urine.
A circus begins to go bankrupt because it has an elephant with special needs, but its all good because he can fly. They call him Dumbo, because he’s brain wrong or something and obviously gets it from his mum, because she goes tits at one point and gets locked up.
The naked woman from Sin City 2 turns up, but doesn’t get naked, but its got that guy in it that made that sex tape a while ago and I saw his penis in that and couldn’t stop thinking about it every time he came onscreen, which is horrible when you’re watching a kids movie, isn’t it?
Anyway, there’s a fire that helps the circus to win and Batman is a prick.
