|07.05.06||Weird Wednesday|| ahhhh.... so... I've finally seen it. I sat through all of it with my eyes open to let the images pass directly into my brain... and now I have to write about it!? ... |
I think it wasn't quite as effective for me since I'd heard about it and heard about it and it'd been talked up and up and up and especially the end I was so ready for the end that, since it's not so much a surprise or shock as an unfortunate outcome that you know will happen from the first scene in the movie... and you've had to endure a whole movie's worth of waiting for it, hoping it won't happen, for some reason it doesn't happen... because it doesn't have to happen if just a few things would go right but... alas... it's fate. it happens. So if this was at the end of a butt-numb-a-thon when I'm in that headspace after seeing 10 movies in a row and this little unassuming movie called Toys are Not for Children comes on... I think it would've have seriously affected my mind. Or if i just showed up on a Wednesday night having heard nothing about this at all... that would be a different story. But in a way i'm kind of glad I had heard about it... that I was prepared just that little bit so my mind had its defenses up... manning the walls as it were... to let me survive. and keep watching.
Talking to someone after who closed his eyes at some points, he said it was actually worse because he could still hear. He tried his best but he still got it... and it was even worse without looking.
So I don't really want to talk about the movie... notate specific scenes or lines that made me laugh, put down memories of the little tidbits to file away and maybe someday incorporate into my own work. Nah, none of that. For those reading that have seen it, you don't need me to remind you of what goes on here... and for those that haven't seen it... you don't want to know. trust me.
heh heh... actually... it had probably some of the most effective use of flashback I've seen in film... it had nearly no nudity... not very much swearing, no violence really whatsoever. Yet I'd give this an X rating in a heartbeat. This movie, along with toys, are definitely not for children.
