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. Weird Science 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 was ill, so stayed home and watched Now TV, which was set in the 80s.
Two nerds with a dial up connection can’t get laid, so decide to make their own woman using a desktop with, I dunno, a 3D printer or something, instead of just going to RedTube and masturbating like I do.
The woman is awesome, but they don’t have sex with her and you don’t even see her boobs, so what was the point?
Anyway, they have a house party, Iron Man is there, but he isn’t dead and there’s a guy that gets turned into some sort of monster made out of shit, which would never happen in real life.
