Hey FilmOlogists, I have a confession to make. I really don’t f*cking get tumblr. I know, I know, this is completely reprehensible. Someone that spends about 90% her day on the internet doesn’t understand something that is potentially very simple (other 10% of my day is spent reading Calvin & Hobbes on the can).
But if ya’ll wanted to help me out, follow me? Is that something that happens? Either way, this is a vague promise that things will start happening more often and with greater hubris.
Welcome back to the workweek grind ya’ll! I hope your weekend was as nice as mine was. This weekend we saw a big increase in ticket sales, probably because of Valentine’s Day, so it’s not really a surprise to see The Vow in the number one spot. However, I am disgusted to see thatThe Phantom Menace (3D) even made the list. Before I go into a rant, here are the Box Office figures.
Okay now that everyone is on the same page, I’ll pick up from where I left off… WHAT IS WRONG WITH SOME PEOPLE! I think we can all agree, as a nation, that the worst thing to happen to Star Wars were Episodes I-III. Don’t even try to disagree with me because you all know that this is a fact! So someone please explain to me how, on earth, did this movie make 23 million dollars? All I can is that money reeks of Jedi mind tricks and selling out. I just do not understand how people could be so stupid to think that 3D (which I hate) could actually improve a crappy movie! It just makes me sick to my stomach. Ever wonder why the rest of the world thinks America is full of morons, well now you have your answer.
On a different note, it looks like men across America conceded and took their girlfriend to seeThe Vow this weekend. I’m not judging, in fact I am pretty sure that’s exactly what I will be doing on Tuesday night. I could say that I am looking forward to watching it, but I think we all know that’s a lie.
If you saw any movies this weekend worth mentioning or are looking for some advice for what to watch on Valentine’s Day get in contact with us.
Magnolia Pictures totally gets it, man. They have decided to release the “most official” Bob Marley documentary for the nation’s most anticipated, unrecognized holiday of April 20th. The documentary called Marley is directed by the guy who did Last King of Scotland, which is a movie that you remember. Anyway, if you’re really aching to toke one to some never before seen footage of the Bob signing “Exodus” you could see it at the SXSW film festival. But be warned, I’m sure the herb market prices escalate when the buyers market explodes. Or something. I don’t constrain myself with the government, man.
All joking aside, this will probably be a great documentary that would be good even without the help of the purp. I actually wouldn’t recommend taking in a lot of film whilst under the influence because that’s what happens when people give movies like Eyes Wide Shut actual credibility. “No, it’s about the social contract that we live in.” Ugh. Please.
But let’s honor the blatant nod to weed smoking, let’s take a look back on some fine GIFs from movies:
Alright, I’d post more but I’m getting mad paranoid, yo. And by the way, do you have any food? I could totally go for some cookies.
