"We Bought a Zoo" - Matt Damon, We Bought a Zoo (2011)
A film about a man so obsessed with playing with his toys that he loses touch with reality.
So it’s the Robert Zemeckis story.
SIDE NOTE: Zemeckis cast his wife as a pornographic actress in this film and I have never felt more uncomortable in my life.
I mean... I’m glad that you’re horny for your wife Bob. :)
FUN FACT: When I was a kid I swallowed a lego brick. I saw it on the floor and was like, “What if I swallowed that lego?” So I did. And then I went to my mom and was like, “I just swallowed a lego.”
And then she called poison control. They told her it would probably be fine. That I didn’t need any medical attention.
I do sometimes wonder if that lego brick is still inside me. A long lost vestige of my childhood...
...Slowly poisoning me.
I’ve heard some film critics say (brag) that they can determine whether a movie will be good or bad solely from the opening shot.
And I’ve always found this to be a disingenuous, if not pretentious thing to say.
That said, from the very first shot of Kenneth Branagh’s Artemis Fowl, I knew I was in for a very bumpy ride.
The film opens with an aerial shot that tracks along a beach over to a Manor overlooking a cliff.…
