Happy-Go-Lucky

Watched Happy Go Lucky this weekend. Loved it. I can already tell it's gonna make this year's top 5.

Watched How to Lose Friends and Alienate People people too. What a waste of an hour. (I didn't bother watching past that.) Toby Young's original memoir wasn't deep literature, but at least had some funny moments. As for the movie, god. It slid off my brain in real-time. I honestly can't recall a single scene.

I hate 90% of movies. And their audiences. Someone's going to all those "Scary Movie" "Date Movie" "Disaster Movie" type movies. But forget those, they're bottom of the barrel even by Hollywood standards. What bugs me more is straight-up mediocrity.

I hate movies where there's "good guys" and "bad guys." I hate movies where I can predict every single thing that's going to happen. I hate movies with soundtracks that telegraph every emotion. I hate movies with pat endings and neatly-wrapped conclusions. I hate movies where there's nothing recognizably human. Like I said, I hate most movies.
