HOME SWEET HOME!!!
What a week!
First I finished the feature I was gripping on out in Easter Washington on Thursday, got a ride home Friday, then production for my short film 487film.com started on Saturday.
If jumping straight from the feature to my short wasn’t enough I had to go back out to Eastern Washington for our final day.
It was an amazing experience.
Finally I’m home and have a couple weeks off until my next gig begins.
Being that my deadline's tonight this is the only time for this week’s viewing of Southland Tales, so at 10:30 in the am I fired it up.
I was kind of expecting to be annoyed by the movie this week. I think watching it on my laptop for the past several weeks was beginning to get to me. I hate watching movies on my laptop. On top of that watching this movie on my one day off meant I missed out on being able to do anything else.
I was starting to hate this whole Area 52 Southland Tales project.
Luckily I’m stubborn because I found myself very entertained by the movie this week!
I had it playing on my old big screen TV while I lounged on the couch.
The fridge was right there. I was able to make trips to it without missing any part of the movie.
I even got to wonder over to my computer to check my Facebook from time to time.
It turns out while I’m home this doesn’t feel like a chore. In fact, I had a blast.
I think I can almost sing along with the entire movie. I get slipped up on some of the Justin Timberlake voice over, but for the most part I have the important parts down.
I found myself washing dishes and preemptively blurting out lines before they played out on the screen.
Though my enthusiasm for the project returned I was pleased as punch to quote the final, "and pimps don't commit suicide" before seeing the end credits roll.
I’m going to cut this review short but I promise you this, before this project ends I will reenact the scene where the Rock does his movie pitch, and I will play all the characters.
See you next week!
