So I saw zero dark thirty
and I was pretty disappointed. Probably six out of ten.
around there. Uhh, same writer and same
director as The Hurt Locker. However, despite the fact that
Zero Dark Thirty was based on a real person, The Hurt Locker turned out to be much
better of a character study than Zero Dark Thirty. Umm, I don’t think it’s going to win the Oscar. If it does, I’ll be disappointed. Aah, whatever.
The Oscars don’t really matter much anyway. Umm…
I- I liked that they had the torture in there and it was realistic and well done and, ya know,
not too many movies would bother Showing poop on the the guy’s butthole
and coming off of his leg to be sorta gross. So I appreciated some things from this movie that did things that other movies might not do.
But at the same time it was really really fucking long and not that much happened. Umm, I don’t know if this is
just because of the fact that I saw it in a Canadian audience
but as soon as they say the words Osama Bin Laden in the movie
everybody just starts laughing. You know when shes just like
“We’re gonna go catch Osama Bin Laden” and then everybody’s like
“HMMPH!” Like, It’s a punchline now.
It’s a punchline. It’s- it’s… The name is just so detached
from reality at this point that mentioning him is comical. It’s a punchline. Any- any time somebody mentioned his name,
especially when they were uhh… (Phone Beeps) The SWAT team at the end and he was like
“Osama!” Everybody just started laughing. Umm… The half an hour near the end where
they actually did have the special ops I know I said SWAT team. I’m gonna get trolled by people being like “You’re not using the correct army definition.” Even though it has absolutely
nothing to do my review. Anyway, umm…
That scene near the end turned out to be quite good.
I really really liked the way that they did the lighting. A lot of films, uhh, when they
do a night time setting you can sorta tell that they- they
had a lot of studio lighting and then just dimmed
it in post production. Whereas with this,
it looked really natural. Umm, in terms of the colours
and the shadows and- and everything. Umm, It was intense. It had me like…
Ya know. I was- I was actively engaged
in it during the last half hour. I feel like that’s how most people
watch the movies, they were sort of, ya know, just watching it and not really one way or
the other on the movie. And then the last half hour
completely wins them over. But I’m not the type of person
where I’ll forget about the entire first… Like, eighty percent of the movie and
just chalk it up to the last half hour. Umm…
I don’t like how… They- ye- ye- ya know-
you go in with the knowledge that it’s based on a true story and
that’s sort of the selling point to this movie but at the same time,
how are you supposed to ignore little things like the helicopter crashing. Did that actually happen?
I don’t think that actually happened. And that was kinda distracting in a movie that’s supposed to play off close to reality. Like, we all know that they wouldn’t have
even had twenty minuets to half an hour to pull off that operation.
They would have been much quicker. But I’m not going to complain about that. I- I just–
There was a lot of talking and it tried to sell itself
as an action movie so uhh… Its personal preference. Didn’t- I didn’t dig it.
I don’t know, maybe if I was in the United States and maybe if I was all about
freedom and not about, ya know, communism, socialism,
and- and being uhh… devil worshipper up here uhh… then maybe I might be a lot
more emotionally attached to the whole idea of
catching Osama Bin Laden. But that alone just wasn’t
a selling point for me and I think that because
of that, it didn’t really do it’s job as an entertaining movie. Umm, on my vlogs channel,
which I’ll link to right here. I decided that I’m not gonna,
like I don’t need to do the whole like “ask me questions!” In one specific sort of event.
So you guys can just fuckin’ post video responses and I’ll answer them whenever. Cause that’s basically what I’m
gonna turn that channel into. Is just a Q and A sorta thing.
So… just do that and there’s no real guidelines. Just ask
away and I’ll answer them and uhh… Yap, yep, yep.
Brrt brrt brrt pthhh* Peace.
