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. The Greatest Showman 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 the new X-Men movie, which was awesome, because I didn’t know there was one coming out.
The Greatest Showman
Wolverine starts his own school for weird kids, except most of them are grown ups, apart from one little boy, who has a really deep voice. The film I saw was a bit broken, because they all spoke like they were in Glee, but it wasn’t Glee, because I’ve seen Glee and it’s shit.
This wasn’t shit. But it was a little different from the last few X-Men movies, and didn’t have Mystique in it, which is a shame, because she’s really hot.
Anyway, the dude from Baywatch that wasn’t The Rock, falls in love with a girl who lives on a rope swing, while Wolverine doesn’t kill anyone and everyone ends up happy, except the weird kids, who stay weird, because Wolverine never finds a cure.
They probably all ended up dying.
