169/365 – Looks Stupid

You know, I’ve gotten into this bad habit.  A habit that any filmmaker should do his best to avoid.  I judge movies before they have been released.  I won’t even see them.  Of course, I think most people do this.  John Carter aside, it’s probably something I should avoid.

Here’s your money back. You should just run now — run as far from this movie as possible.

Case in point.  I saw 21 Jump Street today.  Oh, my lord, I had my mind made up about this movie.  No way was it going to be any good.  Just another crap comedy made by some crap producers who want to recycle old 80s fodder and repackage it as something shiney and new . . .

Well, I’ll be the first to admit, it was pretty damn good.  Really clever, really well written and just enough self references that you knew it wasn’t taking itself too seriously.  The movie itself calls out the fact that its a remake of a crappy 90s TV show.  It’s a film, making fin of a TV show making fun of itself.  Wrap your head around that, fool!  I can’t even make this blog funny because the funny has already been made in that film.  I’m just going to tell you readers (all 7 of you) to go ahead and see it.  It’s worth the price of admission.

Okay, now I’m off to bed.  This is going to be one hell of a week!
