You had to be stoned, I guess
April 9, 2008 - Heather Ziegler
I am in no way an expert movie reviewer like Bill Hanna who does the movie reviews for our newspapers. Bill has sat through some real dogs and enjoyed the spectacular movies as well, but I think a man in the audience last week at Towngate said it all when he stood up and proclaimed: "That was the worst movie I ever sat through." He received plenty of applause from the crowd. The movie was titled "I'm Not There." It was supposed to be about the life of singer/songwriter Bob Dylan but for the life of me, I couldn't tell you WHAT it was about. It never made any sense. If you like to watch people smoke too much and mumble than you should see this movie. Perhaps I am not sophisticated enough to understand Hollywood's attempt to entertain but I do remember when stories contained love scenes that were left up to the imagination (much sexier than what's on the screen today) and conversations that could be heard and understood. Pick any movie Alan Alda played in and you will see what I mean. How about "Four Seasons" where the story meant something and the scenes were shot in outstandingly beautiful locations. I want to be able to laugh, maybe cry, and perhaps leave a theater thinking I had just enjoyed the past two hours.
