The Ten Movie Commandments

It is during these times when there are more fans with hate than true lovers of movies, which has made me come up with the Ten Commandments for true movie lovers, that¬†I had earlier posted on Facebook. We have had fans of actors and actresses spreading hatred all over the internet earlier, and now it has been replaced by the fans of movies, which is clearly reflected in the abuse which the Baahubali fans have been producing all over. This makes one wonder if they actually get paid for abusing others by someone related to the movie, and only God knows why they are feeling so insecure to bring those sexist and racist comments even with such huge box-office collections. So, here are the commandments which will be helpful in finding the original movie lovers among us, and all statements will start with “Will” in honour of Will Smith ūüėõ

1. Will have more than one all-time favourite movie different from the crowd: Well, it is not necessary to love a movie just because it comes from your language, your state, your country or religion, and most brainless people are to feel that one movie is the best because a lot of people are saying that, but it is not, for things are rather subjective.

2. Will appreciate the choice of others not to watch a movie, or not to like one particular popular movie: You will surely have to get rid of these people who keep forcing you to watch a movie or to tell someone else that you like this movie so much, when you don’t. They are playing with your free will, and just ban them from your lives.

3. Will feel no need to watch a movie just due to everyone else watching it: Okay, so everyone says that this movie is so great, and that if you don’t watch it, you will miss something great in your life. Well, this is pathetic thinking, and a third rate way of making others watch a movie – these people are mostly fakes, as one movie is certainly not life.

4. Will not like a movie just because it has his/her favourite actor/actress: Some actors feel the need to be treated as VIPs and sometimes, they just say that they are also common man. Then there are those fans which are so dumb that they keep on believing all those lies which are thrown at them. Movies make stars, and not the other way around.

5. Will not keep talking for about 100 times on how great a movie is: Yes, this movie is the greatest movie of all-time and you need to watch it – they will keep saying all the time, not just by mouth, but also on different posts for no reason. They need to be sent to Antarctica immediately, because there are more significant things in life.

6. Will not reveal the big suspense of a movie publicly: Some people are just too much into revealing the suspense of a movie for no reason; maybe they like some other actor who hasn’t acted in that particular movie. But this selfish act has no explanation; it is nothing that a true movie fan should do.

7. Will not abuse or support abuse of other movie fans: You have no right to abuse people for not liking the movie which you feel is the greatest – maybe you are just dumb that you liked that movie; it doesn’t matter if you have a whole nation liking the same movie, because the whole world can be wrong. Abusing and supporting the same is just pure evil.

8. Will support the other viewers’ right to have opinions: Why is that you want everyone to accept that your favourite movie as the greatest movie of all-time? Instead, it will be nice to grow up and not keep showing up on others’ posts to say that, especially on those strangers’ profiles as if the director or producer of a movie is paying you to overrate a movie.

9. Will not pretend to like a movie just to seem cool: People who likes this movie is cool, so thinks your friends. But you don’t need to be dumb and like the movie just for that reason. You just need to like the movie if you like it. Otherwise, you are just being an idiot with no real opinion about the movie or anything in life.

10. Will be a good boy/girl at the theatre causing no disturbance: There are people in those movie halls who are just nuisance and nothing else. There are those who howl, clap or make other noises in the halls – there are others who just abuse, and we also have those who talk loudly along with the ones who spit, put the legs on front seats etc – all need to be expelled.

Fans and Nonsense

There is a coin that we have to deal with as bloggers. On one beautiful side, there are those good people who agree or disagree with us and appreciate our work or give us suggestion. On the other side, there are those people of the nonsense who don’t agree with what we say and and talk to us as if we have not right to opinion. When I write, I come across both, and as the comments are moderated, everyone only¬†see those people commenting in a meaningful, decent, appropriate manner, respecting the opinions of others – the rest are those whose comments don’t get approved here. I am not perfect, none of us are; but we should try to be decent.

As I am a person with my own individuality, I can write only as who I am, and with what I know and what I have experienced. Arrogance¬†is not acceptable to this blog, not only when you talk to me, but also to my consistent readers as reply to their comment. Most of the curse words and degrading talks are banned on my blog, especially when it comes from someone unknown – yes, there are lots of people who arrive with what seems to be fake details, to comment. I usually don’t accept their comments, except for some of the people who have makes sense in a good way.

Darkness spreads. But how fast can that happen?

Vision of some people are like this – they can’t see through it; a typical fan problem.

If it is something that lessens my readership, I am okay with it because mutual respect is something that is needed in a discussion. People without it are not welcome here, especially with fake profiles. This happens mostly with anything written about movies, and I remember someone making free abuse with multiple profiles in the early 2000s when I was trying my luck at writing. At that time, I thought that some local people were too obsessed with their stars, and what surprises me is that the person didn’t read the review at all.

But that was never just the local phenomenon, for the same had extended not just beyond the South, but also beyond the nation. There are people who pounce on us from different parts of world, and it mostly makes no sense at all when they start talking. No nation is free from such people. Some do abuse, and others try to bring a comment about their favourite celebrity being the greatest of all time, that too when most of the people in this part of the world never even heard that name; forget liking the person. May be they need to pay someone to write like they need. There will be people willing for the same, and they can stick to reading those posts.

I understand that some people find some celebrities to be awesome, even though almost none of them contribute to the welfare of their fellow citizens. They list the achievements of the person, but I have no interest in the same. The performance of one person as a character is not based on his or her other performances, what she does at that certain moment to the character and to the work. The truth is that I have never mentioned on my writings that someone is a terrible actor or actress, but some people find it so. They comes under many fake profiles on the same day to prove their points; it is nice to have many e-mail accounts, right?

But then I realize that I have written nothing about that person as these people suggest. The problem with these blind fans is that they read between the lines and find some word which I used and declare it to be against the celebrity when it is the character I am talking about. When I write about the characterization, they feel that the character is the celebrity and it is about that person. When I call something a mistake in the movie, they feel that they are talking about their favourite celebrity. Then they ask “why and how” here and there, but the truth is that I don’t owe them an answer unless the mask is removed. But can it be removed unless they can see things from the viewpoint of the person who writes, according to his location, his experiences? It makes one remember about the message of the movie, Life of Josutty.

There is a special option for travel; to row the boat to the middle of the river and jump.

Isn’t¬†writing about what one feels is the truth that matters even when alone?

There are times when I write an introduction about a work and the blind fan is already on it with “why and how” questions when I clearly say in the end that more posts with explanations are to follow. They only see particular words near the names of their favourite celebrities and they pounce on it without understanding that it is something which has positive sides for the celebrity and can be expanded in favour of the person. I wonder when these blind fans will be respectful to those with opinions when all of us actually respect what the fans say? Is the opinion reserved to them only when they don’t even fully read what we write before jumping into conclusions? None of these people will get more posts about their celebrities because people with no respect for opinions don’t deserve to get the opinions. The cricket fans are doing really well to match up with the actor/actress fans because they think that their favourite player is beyond criticism. Actors, actresses, sportsmen and all become rich celebrities with lots of fans, and not those who contribute to the society with devotion and sacrifice. It is a strange world indeed.

Kingsman or King Kong?

I accept the fact that most of the world did like the movie which they call Kingsman: The Secret Service. But, I have to disagree with saying that “everyone liked that movie”, mostly because I could find nobody in the theatre or rather the multiplex of my choice liking this movie. May be it is because we are more of common people who choose to think different. Come on, this movie is not even original. Adding random sexual joke in the end adds to nothing. Still you might ask why? Here are the reasons.

Kingsman is not working in its genre: Kingsman: The Secret Service is a complete failure in its genre of spy action comedy as it somehow manages to be unfunny throughout its run, and the best scenes of the movie were already shown in the trailer. It is surely not action comedy, and even if you divide that in the middle, there is not much gained. About the spy stuff, it is too boring and a lesser version of what we have seen in many movies.

Here is a movie that worked in its genre. May be new generation needs more nonsense.

Here is a movie that worked. May be the new generation needs nonsense instead.

It has nonsense in the form of violence: This movie makes no sense with its violence as it has the most disgusting and the most boring scenes of violence, with people being torn apart, their heads being blown up and a hatchet to the head become amazing. I would say that if any kind of violence which is shown on the screen becomes enjoyable as comedy, it only shows a certain amount of degradation that occurs in the minds of the audience.

The script makes no sense even for a braindead zombie: There are dumb movies and there are incredibly dumb movies – among them, this movie has found a new low. Get Smart and Johnny English were so much smarter, but the problem with the critics and the new generation people is that they go for cheap jokes, and it is the reason for the glorification of this movie. They actually misguided me into watching this ridiculous movie which stands as the worst of the year so far.

The failure to know what is comedy: Whatever this movie feels as comedy doesn’t even exist. There was not even one little moment of laughter among he audience when this movie was going on and that shows how much this movie degenerated into something boring and ridiculous. It fails to pay tribute to the movies that it mocks, and is also a complete failure in bringing the fun element. It is like a bloody drag that happens from the beginning to the end. Yes, there is the message to be an idiot, that this movie provides.

Do you know what makes a good spy action comedy? Not Kingsman, but Get Smart.

Do you know what is a good spy action comedy? Not Kingsman, but Get Smart.

Better action comedy movies: Yes, there are too many of them, and as I have mentioned earlier, there are so many of spy comedy films which are actually funny unlike this piece of nonsense. There are better Indian movies which do nicely with action comedy, and the only thing that this movie manages to be is the Hollywood model of Besharam and become one of the worst movies ever – you don’t listen to the critics with this one; this is plain stupid.

I don’t usually waste my time writing reviews about stupid movies, but this is not that much of a review. This is just a collection of things that came to my mind while I came out after the show, with a few things added from what people were talking about in the theatre. Let me make one thing clear here: it is only when one becomes short of ideas that more and more blood and gore is added to a comedy movie. They are exact opposite things, and it is time that people realize that some things are not supposed to be funny.¬†Movies do need violence¬†because there are situations when it is needed, but that¬†is not funny – it¬†gives out a wrong impression to a mindless new generation. After all, murder, torture and rape, even when brutal in depiction, are funny for some people, isn’t it?

*I agree to what The Telegraph said abut this movie – “obnoxious”, and they have given this movie the right rating – the minimum. ***The images used in this blog post are from the Official Facebook Pages of Johnny English and Get Smart.
