I like mystery/sci-fi movies. Something that questions about our existence on earth, past & future, and the like. Do we live in a parallel universe? Does time travel exist? Are we alone? And so on. It would take years and years to find the answers to that. Anyway, it is fun to be curious and search for the answers about something we may never discover the truth. And here’s a list of movies that reflect my curiosity:
- The Time Traveler’s Wife
- I Am Legend
- Blade Runner
- Close Encounters of the Third Kind
- The Fifth Element
- Mad Max: Fury Road
- Planet of the Apes
And the TV series “LOST” which I still don’t understand. But it’s many years ago that I saw it – just some of the episodes. I think I have to rewatch it 🙂
I just got home a while ago. I consider seeing a good film before taking a shower and go to bed. Or, I can take a shower now and then see if I feel like watching a movie after that or not. If not I will just go straight to bed after shower since I have to get up early tomorrow morning, more early than today. So, maybe it’s a good idea that I go to bed right after shower.
But, if I decided to see a good movie I might see Arrival (which I love it and I have seen it only once) or Annihilation (I have never seen it before and some say it’s similar to Arrival) or Aliens (this one I have seen many times already, but I can never get tired of seeing it again and again) or I might even see Blade Runner 2049 because I have seen the original one 2-3 times and love it! So, I might check the second one out. But it’s almost 3 hours long. I might watch something else tonight and see it another day instead when I don’t have to stand up early.
I think, it’s better I go take a shower now. Then I can make up my mind later what I want to do, afterwards.
Time to relax and watch a good movie and eat ice cream. I’m halfway through the film already. When I’m done with the film I will continue to work on my screenplay. I really hope I can finish Act 1 today. But I can’t work on my script constantly. I need to take some time off as well, to restart my energy and free up my mind. I may go to bed late again tonight. Last night, I went to bed around 1 am. I just worked and worked on my screenplay. Today is also going to be the same, I think. It’s good that I don’t have a TV. I can feel, I have achieved a lot since I don’t have a television. So when I want to watch a good film I just subscribe to a streaming service, rent or buy a film. That way, I can control myself when I want to be entertained. If I had a telly it would be difficult for me to refrain myself from turning it on all day long, although I didn’t really watch anything. Then, it would distract me from accomplishing my work. So, it was the right decision to throw the TV away.
I just recorded my very first podcast, talking about my first feature-length screenplay.
I deleted my previous blog because I thought I didn’t have time to blog. I just wanted to focus on writing my screenplays. But I couldn’t stop writing blog anyway. I love writing. And it’s my way of expressing myself. So, I just have to keep blogging. I hope, from now on I won’t be deleting it again. It took me time to build audiences. Now, I have to start all over again. But, it’s ok. I like writing. I enjoy writing. I mainly write for myself. I feel like coming home when I start blogging again. It’s a fantastic feeling when you continue to do something you’re truly passionate about. And blogging is one of my top interests or hobbies. So, there’s no other way but to continue to do what I love the most.
I watched Suburbicon film about a few days ago and loved it! At first, I wasn’t interested in seeing it. A movie set in 50s suburban America didn’t appeal to me that much. But after browsing and browsing through lots of movies, I couldn’t find a film that I really wanted to watch, so I just tried to watch Suburbicon instead. Also because I like the Coen Brothers movies such as No Country for Old Men, The Big Lebowski. So I thought, I should give this movie a try. Their movies always share the same themes: Money, greed, and consequences. And Suburbicon was no exception. But it added one more sub-theme or subplot which was racism.
And they managed to weave the whole thing together. So it made sense. The subplot, racism, helped add something more exciting and fresh to the main plot. A new view or perspective for a change which addressed a long-standing social issue racism. It also helped the movie move past act 2 without sagging, which many new writers have problem with it. Me too. So, it’s cleverly written. Although it wasn’t that great, compared to many other movies they have made. But, it’s a good film to be inspired for aspiring writers & filmmakers like me, looking for an easy film in terms of story’s structure to study and learn from. And how to avoid boring act 2. After I have studied many films and screenplays, I think, I am not afraid of act 2 anymore. I think, I can handle it now.
