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, frozen rain fell from the sky and stopped my door working, so I stayed in and watched…
Tom Cruise uses his hands and body to fly a plane really high up in the air. There’s a song by Kenny Loggins, which is quite 80’s. Kenny Loggins also did some music for “Caddyshack” which is pretty good, isn’t it? Anyway, all these planes have a war and Tom Cruise wins by being clever or something.
Marks out of 10….
