BestsellerMagazine.com - CATEGORY Headline Report: TITLE
I was eager to see Bladerunner 2049, and it turned out its title related to its running length. There’s this thing called editing – try it out, Hollywood. You can safely cut 20 minutes of characters pensively staring out rain-streaked windows. I totally get it – the hero is sensitive. Noted. Now make something happen, and oh – make what happens make sense.
I was eager to see Alien: Covenant because I really liked the first two Alien movies. The first was scary, the second was an astonishing sci-fi action flick. Both hold up today. I was even willing to suspend my disbelief for Covenant, as well as suspend my disappointment with the third and fourth Alien movies and the terrible, terrible Prometheus. And Covenant was…so, so awful. It made no sense. Every action scene was TO THE EXTREME! (“Hey, let’s not just have them fight the monster – let’s have them fight the monster on top of a spaceship while it’s flying!”). It was ugly and boring. Every dollar was wasted, the filmmakers’ and mine.
Like most people, I make the money-wasting mistake less and less often these days. The stats bear this out – people just aren’t showing up.
