Gee, I had planned to cheerfully see "H T" tonight as momentary escape
from my adult world. Yes, its probably not on par with seeing Hamlet or Bridge
on the River Kwai. But mixing dumb escapist fun is a great counter-point to the
life we adult's lead. Some 70 years ago in Preston Sturggess' movie
Sullivan's Travels the lead character discovered this same truism. I'm
going to ignore Mr Poppleton's pronouncements on H T and enjoy myself this
evening. Tommorrow I can attend the funeral of a High School English Teacher I
knew in an earlier life.
@ BYU Track Star"...mixing dumb escapist fun is a great
counter-point to the life we adult's lead."Agreed. I'm
trying to decide if I want to go see Looper tomorrow or watch College football
to decompress after a busy work week.
Thank you for the warning. The world burns, children are starving and Hollywood
blathers on.My $ will be going elsewhere. Too bad our politicians
and leaders don't set the example...
