I have noticed for quite some time a difference between what I want in a movie and what I get. Certainly an easy way of explaining this is that I’m not part of the age group being targeted, namely one that grew up with video games a tad more sophisticated than Pong, which actually only came into existence when I was in junior high school.
Movies tend to move at such a breakneck speed that I am at a lost to understand exactly how this or that is connected. Perhaps that is my mistake. They aren’t connected but thrown together as randomly as the colors on a Jackson Pollock canvas. I tend to see them as equivalent to a sophisticated Blair Witch Project or as a conjurer who must distract your attention so they can perform their magic.
Give me The Man in the White Suit any day.
