21 Grams

I would give you guys more then one movie today but honestly I'm just really fucking tired. My girlfriend just had surgery and dealing with the hospital and taking care of everything has me kinda exhausted. She's doing fine and all just a bit overwhelming. so. i don't why i'm writing this but this blog is called things i come up with not movie central. anyway. regardless read below were i tear 21 grams a new one.

hey remember when everyone made these non linear films. Yeah well this film can now
stand as a testament to why that was sometimes a bad fucking idea for some movies. This movie is a straight up mess. this could without a doubt be alot better if it were made in a linear way. seriously there are some good moments but for the most part this movie is a steamin pile.
This film seems to think if you have a film about 3 peoples lives that tie together. that we will be mystified by the fact that you have 3 movies stars playing these 3 people. it's like the reverse of psycho.
This movie seems to think that you loose 21 grams when you die. well here's what wikipedia says about that

"The title of the movie comes from the work of Dr. Duncan MacDougall, who in the early 1900s sought to measure the weight purportedly lost by a human body when the soul departed the body upon death. MacDougall weighed dying patients in an attempt to prove that the soul was material, tangible and thus measurable. These experiments are widely considered to have little, if any, scientific merit, and MacDougall's results varied considerably from 21 grams, but for some people this figure has become synonymous with the measure of a soul's mass."
By the way they don't mention that in the movie probably because this movie is uninteseting and fucking bad. it would have been intresting if that got into that but I guess this movie was too intrested in cutting back in forth into crap town to think about doing something like that.
There was one part where namoi watts says she's so hurt by the things that have happened to her that she is an emotional amputee. like really. why doesn't this movie suck my emotional dick.
Really i could talk about the acting or how i liked seeing Melissa Leo in this movie. But I feel like this was so forgettable I won't. DOn'T SEE THIS MOVIE. people used to tell me how amazing this movie was. I wish i could go back in time to tell them they are fucking morans. seriously this was a mess. just really i don't understand why it was made other then everyone involved wanted to be in a crazy art movie. well you didn't this moive sucks. don't see it. it's not worth your time. apprently the same guy did Babel. my expectations have now been lowered.
I honeslty think the non linear thing killed. flat out killed this movie. and anyone who wants to do that should see this movie to see how it's not always such a great idea.
guess what everyone who made 21 grams. your movie sucks.
