A Poem, Some Movies...
In the spirit of cheesy, fun films, here's a short list of films I like that are certainly not great (or even good) artistically:
Paulie: Very witty dialogue; parrots are cool.
The Matrix Trilogy: The fight sequences get me every time (and the first one is actually a pretty good sci-fi). Also, I have a strange liking for Keanu Reeves; indifference to almost everything is the perfect role for him!
Donkey Kong Country- Legend of the Crystal Coconut: Hit me now; then again, it's got some bizarre and laughable animation, and some hilarious dialogue and musical numbers.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movies: Turtles or parrots... turtles or parrots? Good, silly fun.
Aristocats: Jazz cats are cool. Especially Thomas O'Malley; *that* is one slick cat.
I could probably go on for a few more, but you get the picture. I'm not a big moviewatcher, though, so my choices are a bit limited. Now, to supplement this post, here's a new poem that I *probably* won't edit anymore:
Sapphire flowers, blue-green bright
Blanket, and blanket-clouds reign
Grey over damp petals. Delight
is too weak a word for such a sight!
I will go there again.
In the center: a gazebo, a wishing well,
Three benches, wrought with graceful wood
And honest stone. And some small spell
Bid a fateful coin into the faerie cell.
I will go again; I should.
The glory of the mighty afternoon
Knelt below elated, pallid lace;
And, rapt with perfect swoon,
Adorned her with an early sapphire moon.
—I cannot stand this place!
With all my love, with all my tenderness and grace
I cannot write myself into this perfect place!
Though I’ve wept, and though I’ve tried
And tried again, my longing can’t conduct
This happy hell; for I cannot construct
My lovely bride, my lovely bride
Who truly was– and died.
By Neil Hester
