It's all about film chez Commentbox tonight, all about film. Tonight's class was a 2-hour breakdown of the plot of a James Bond film, and I learnt a hell of a lot. Really!! There's a method to the box-office success of 007 and it taught me, yet again, to never underestimate popular culture. That being said...I have yet to sit through an entire James Bond film without falling asleep.
Here is a classic movie moment from MY crazy teenage years - the song I danced to in front of the mirror after watching "Starstruck" for the first time. The next day I went out and bought a striped shirt and red boots too.
But for my film of the imagination....I'd like to use another song for the final credits. It'll be a film about the power and glorious fun of friendships, about feeling free, not having to prove anything to anybody, and being beautiful inside and out. It'll be set in Australia, and all of the Hollywood celebrities will watch the film and feel ugly and boring compared to the characters in my story. It'll make every Hollywood starlet who's ever had a facelift feel really really ugly, and silly.
