Right up front? This movie is in the running for the dumbest movie of all time.
There are easily twenty to twenty-five points in the movie where you could look at what’s happening onscreen and list ten good reasons why whatever’s going on would be either impossible, improbable, incongruous, or idiotic. And that’s ALLOWING for the possibility of an alien invasion in the first place, I’m not even counting that…
Yup, this script was someone’s Jr. High creative writing assignment, but on the plus side? They blow a lot of shit up.
I just finished watching the 90 minute final episode of the remarkable television show “Friday Night Lights”. I have to say, I think that’s one of the best finales of all time. My knee jerk reaction is to put it only behind “The Shield” and “The Wire” in terms of final episodes. I laughed, I felt my heartstrings get tugged on. I swear, there were a couple of moments where it got a little dusty in my livingroom. Just a little. I’ve yet to officially figure out my all time tv top ten, but it’s a safe bet that if “FNL” doesn’t make it, it will at least received SERIOUS consideration.
It was a remarkable show for many reasons… the acting, the cast, the directing, its business model. There were a lot of reasons why this show was not only praise worthy but noteworthy.
Now it’s over, and I honestly find myself a little choked up. You know, just a little.
