You Can’t Say That!!!

Words never heard, anywhere: I can’t wait for the next Steve Guttenberg movie!

Ok, that’s mean and it’s not his fault. In fact and more to the point, he’s not a good actor, but he ended up landing quite a few juicy movie gigs. That’s great marketing on his or his agent’s part.

I’m really not trying to disrespect Guttenberg. After all, I only worked on two major motion pictures – as a crowd warm up guy during scenes where a big crowd needs to be entertained between takes to keep them fresh during an 18 hour day. That’s it. So the man certainly did better than I did.

So what’s the point? Heather and I have attempted to watch several movies lately and wound up bailing on them because 20 minutes in, there were no laughs in the comedies and terrible plot lines in the dramas. And these are with marquis actors. I know! The production companies seem to be throwing anything at the walls to see what sticks. Nice pasta reference!

We’ve taken to watching films like ‘The Avengers’ and others directed and produced by people who always seem to get it right. The rest of it is junk where, just like a bad live comedy show, there seem to be more impacting swear words instead of punch lines. What has become of great writing, casting and execution? Very sad.

  1. Maybe it’s the general public’s appetite for quick fixs through streaming that’s causing it
    Two examples:
    For instance how many zombie movies/comic books/Urban Fantasy novels does the public need?
    You would have thought the ‘sinister child’ horror movie would have run out of steam by now.
    No, folk still sit there goggle eyed…
    As for Netflix’s stand-up comedy shows, I tried, honestly I tried….. The only one I enjoyed was an archive performance by the late Joan Rivers….and well she was just unique, The Queen of The Outrageous, but she had style.
    This is why I like SF/Fantasy movies so well, they are so far removed from anything else, I can’t help but watch (I have 8 seasons of Game of Thrones to catch up on….I’ll take my time)

      1. I would Jerry, but we cancelled the subscription….not worth our resources, and we have a large catalogue of dvds which need re-watching.
        No one else could get away with it the way Joan Rovers did, that style only comes along rarely.
        Anyway a recommendation by you Jerry is to be followed…I’ve made a note of the names and will check them on You Tube.
        Thanks
