It's been a bit of time since I did an update about movies. And what with the Oscars around the corner, it seems like everything is really easy to get a hold of and watch through alternative means. So I sit here and I just watched two films. The first one was Bully
Here's the trailer;
This year, over 5 million American kids will be bullied at school, online, on the bus, at home, through their cell phones and on the streets of their towns, making it the most common form of violence young people in this country experience. The Bully Project is the first feature documentary film to show how we've all been affected by bullying, whether we've been victims, perpetrators or stood silent witness. The world we inhabit as adults begins on the playground. The Bully Project opens on the first day of school. For the more than 5 million kids who'll be bullied this year in the United States, it's a day filled with more anxiety and foreboding than excitement. As the sun rises and school busses across the country overflow with backpacks, brass instruments and the rambunctious sounds of raging hormones, this is a ride into the unknown.
Any one of you who identifies with these kids is a faggot. Don't make me push you down, you fucking dweeb. Hell, you twerps and lil faggots just blaming other people for your own problems. Way to not take responsibility for your own lameness. Who's the faggot now, faggot!
Welp, I know that I'm going to get a vasectomy now cause kids... okay, humans are god damn horrible. But in truth this was actually a decent film, though it was more interesting and effective for the high school crowd. I wonder what the next hysteria is going to be after the 'OMG BULLYING' sort of fades away. Maybe it's going to be all about Football being brain-damaging leaders for our kids. Or how about school safety, because of those guns. Gotta keep an armed guard around at all time, don'tcha know.
But I'll say it again - kids are fucking awful to everyone and everything.
So after I've pretty much chased you away from reading this blog with a huge helping of sarcasm, let's move on to the next flick. PROMISED LAND.
What's it about? Well, it's a story of a salesmen for a natural gas company experiencing life-changing events after arriving in a small town, where his corporation wants to tap into the available resources.
You can plainly see this is all about MONEY IS WRONG, DUH, GAS IS WRONG, SOLAR PANELS ON EVERYTHING!11 type of message. Oh yeah, and that's Jim from The Office.
Oh poor people, so your drinking water is flammable. Think of it as a cool fireworks show, brah. It's actually surprising that the film has such a worse IMDB rating than even I was expecting it to be. I can't say I hated it. I mean, it almost made me want to even consider the possibility of living in a little shithole do-nothing town....
Almost. But yeah, fuck those Walmart filled backwards as hick towns. I almost feel like this was a complete ripoff of the documentary Gasland. Only made for those who couldn't stand documentaries without lovable actors you know from popular NBC shows.
Besides, the solar panel industry has a way better salesman than Fatt Damon. They have this dude who can clearly sale sowarpawols
And that's your clearly outdated movie news for the week.
