What I’ve Come to Realize

As life for me becomes more tepid and terrifyingly predictable I have lost interest in the academy award winning films that leave you more depressed than at the start; as if you had attended a Shakespeare tragedy. This excludes of course,  any Quinton Torrentino award winning film that I would very readily watch. What breaks the perpetual circle of life is the bang, boom, and free balling blasts of the big screen action films. Jason Stathom being at the top of my A-list anti-heroes that totally rock. The man is like a harnessed bomb that is ready to go off at any time.

For any like minded adrenaline seekers such as myself, I would recommend any of his films. That is all for now, and look out for Salt, due in theatres near the end of this month. This may be the last movie that Angelina Jolie makes so be there.

  1. The Wrestler was very depressing but it was great at the same time. Though the films that win the Academy Awards are often sad, the fact remains that they are normally very good. Movies like No Country for Old Men, The Departed, The Wrestler, Slumdog Millionaire, Million Dollar Baby and Requiem for a Dream (to name a few that were nominated and/or won) were very sad most of the time, but they were equally amazing. The fact is more that the Academy Awards are COMPLETELY political, and most of the time, the best film doesn’t win.

  2. I have to agree with you Priest. I mean, it’s not as if don’t have the attention span to watch movies like Seven Pounds, or A Life Less Ordinary.
    It’s just that life is already gloomy enough. I can’t speak for most people, but I go to the movies to escape that type of thing, so films that some would
    deem ignorant: Like Last Action Hero, are right up my alley. I know it’s just
    explosions, touch-guy machismo, and no where near the acting of Denzel or Pacino. But hey, it’s fun, and that’s why I watch movies in the first place, if I wanted to watch life unfolding in front of my eye’s I’d just step out of my house. Anyway I’m with you priest.

  3. I still like those films if I can relate in some small portion to those characters. If I can pull a little bit away and compare it to my own life, I can watch the rest, see how the character progressively gets worse, and say “Well, at least my situation isn’t that bad.” Those films are sad yes, but they give me an optimistic perspective on my own crappy situations, so I can’t quite agree with ya there.
