It's Thursday, which means it's time for another installment in Wandering Through the Shelves' Thursday Movie Picks! I hope I can keep these up, since they are really fun. Last week we talked about Bank Robberies, and this week it's all about...
Now, I'll say this. I debated on what was a 'mistake' versus a 'poor decision', and in the end I decided that they were both kind of the same thing, and so I went with that thought. Here is what that thought produced.
The first film that came to mind was Mean Creek. This brilliant little seen film contains a shocking moment when a group of friends, determined to play a harsh prank on a neighborhood bully, get more than they bargained for when he...drowns. This decision to 'teach him a lesson' had the ultimate of consequences and proved to be a mistake that they could not repair.
First mistake was thinking that you could play God and actually resurrect those that God himself saw fit to destroy, but the biggest mistake was trusting this guy; am I right! I mean, WTF. Just look at him. You know he's bound to fuck up EVERYTHING; and he does.
Yeah, this was a big screw up. Talk about the biggest example of pure arrogance completely ruining everyone in it's wake. Shortage of lifeboats, over zealous speeds, complete disregard for safety and danger. I mean, this was a mess!
I wanted to highlight the above three as my selections here because, I kind of wanted to highlight good movies, but this shitty flick deserves to be mentioned for the sheer fact that every single decision made throughout the entirety of this movie, from first to final frame, is dumb as fuck. Every single character comes off like a complete and total retard. What a stupid, stupid movie.
