    Cinematic Perfection

    "It's just like a camera. Point and shoot."


    One woman. A globe of corporate decay. A soul stripped away.

    A state of victims. Bodies to weapons. Identities commodified.

    Then a gun. A memory, a feeling. An impulse to save.


    Retribution.


    The contents of the past. The fight of the now. The value of the fiction, of the understanding within ourselves. Of deconstructing the cinematic template to an expressively artificial actuality of an unparalleled understanding of compositions, spatiality, and…

    "You've lived and died a thousand times."

    The next pandemic will consist of a majority of Hollywood editors forgetting how to edit films because... lol. Someone gets waterboarded with honey, so that's cool. Ninety-six percent of the action looks like a poorly-rendered video game clip (without the imagination). Waste of a premise.

    Director's Cut: A

    "Work hard, increase production, prevent accidents, and be happy."

    "That was so intense, I like can’t even with this place."

    Some of the best things to come from 2017:

    -The Rock annihilating people (and blinding the audience) with his smoldering intensity.

    -Jack Black complaining about being an overweight middle-aged man who has no access to "her" phone until a hippo performs a sneak attack on "her" which later leads to a major crush on Nick Jonas.

    -Karen Gillan doing *anything* of which includes jaw-dropping dance fighting and her…

    Cinematic Perfection

    "The Rebellion is reborn today. The war is just beginning. And I will not be the last Jedi."

    The scarce case of perfection being made by its imperfections and characters themselves wrestling with their own imperfection; a scorched heart that empathetically captures all the collective suffering and emotionality of the past - via tackling the potential reconstruction & extensive ramifications of failure - to forge a new reality. Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi, in an utterly…
