Silver Linings Playbook (2012)
Silver Linings Playbook: I suspect its a bad movie for well-meant academics?
I'm a teacher in need for some therapy.
Can anyone convince me to see this movie? I haven't seen it, but read some reviews. It has very very high scores - but among the film enthusiast, all-eating-movie-genre-crowd I see very very low score, regarded as shallow, uninteresting etc.
My experience from here in Norway as a teacher in primary school is that movies loved by my colleagues getting a high score - normally is boring, uninteresting and have a known script, that you easily forget. A movie that gives you nice feelings - have some fake depth to it that is easy to love and talk about for the random movie visitor.
A movie that makes them feel good about themselves. A movie easy to talk about at work, with the friends at dinner: I've seen this (deep) interesting movie. Blah blah blah.... One of the reviews strengthen my feeling : " Such a great inspiring film for all. It makes me want to be a better person--for SURE!! Great story line. So passionate, reaches deep into the soul of family, friends, marriage, love, compassion, understanding of others, how we question ourselves and others." Blah blah blah
Yeah so be a better person then without this movie don't pollute the internet and waste bandwidth with your deep-felt views. Go! Go and be a better person.
Oooops. Sorry. Got carried away. Nothing wrong with the reviewers feelings . I'm genuinely happy for him/here.
But hey. We are talking film history here. This extremely high score? One of the best movies in ever. Hard to buy. For a movie to get scores like this at IMDb - its a movie that get the academic crowd out to the movies - and so happy that they leave a score here at IMDb. My theory. What's happening? Is IMDb becoming the Mc Donald's of fine film reviews?
Maybe I'm really wrong? Maybe the movie is good not the garbage I suspect? Please tell me. But before you tell me - state if you're an academic please.
This could be a lot of fun - from my workplace I know for sure that academics have sensible feelings and are easily hurt. Normally they hide their inner beast very well. If somebody hurt their feelings they smile. Its OK. But at home, or at lunch they spew their hatred and racism hidden behind a cloud of words. Meaning nothing other than make them seems to be sensible people. But push them a little - its there!
So. Get it on. Be your inner self. Be your worst. Please state your hate and self indulged bigotry. I have given you lots of ammunition to talk your talk. I can't wait for your moral disgust! And maybe. Maybe. Some of you will convince me to see this piece of garbage named Silver linings Playbook.
Ha ha ha
.. As you know I'm a teacher after all in need for some therapy.
