”Three weeks ago I was a law abidin citizen. Workin a nine to five job. Eight to four, anyways. Things happen to you. they happen. They don’t ask first. They don’t require your permission”
The symmetry of Andrew Dominik’s The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
People think that I must be a very strange person. This is not correct. I have the heart of a small boy. It is in a glass jar on my desk. - Stephen King
My mom dated a guy who had been Stephen King’s bodyguard and he said that he was indeed a very strange person.
Favorite Films | Constantine (2005)
Angels and demons can’t cross over into our plane. So instead we get what I call half-breeds. The influence peddlers. They can only whisper in our ears. A single word can give you courage, or turn your favorite pleasure into your worst nightmare. Those with the demon’s touch and those part angel, living alongside us. They call it the balance. I call it hypocritical bullshit.
Everyone hated this movie but me.
Deconstruction films are defined as films that take apart their respective genres, forcing the audience to not only question why we are watching it, but also the particular filmmaking techniques and tropes.
Films focused on satire are often also referred to as “parody”. They usually pay homage to the work that came before, imitating them in more comedic forms.
Adult Swim making an unholy amount of sense.
suck on that, film industry
"We always thought alien life would come from the stars, but it came from deep beneath the sea. A portal between dimensions in the Pacific Ocean."
