Slow movies and the big picture

I’m now watching a movie called What Do We See When We Look at the Sky?. What a beautiful name isn’t it? It’s a nightmare of a movie. It really is. For me, that is. To any normal person, it’s just a romantic drama. To me it isn’t. To me, it’s a ticking time bomb.

When I was a kid I used to love movies that took their time to explain everything, the feelings, the landscape, etc. But now, I start to loose it when two people kiss for too long, or a 5 minute shot of a girl walking by under the street light. It’s like, get on with it man! I’ve got shit to do! My patience is so low that it morphs into anxiety and then it’s hell. So anyway, this movie is a prime example of that. The director really spends a lot of time on in showcasing all the minute details. And I’m happy for those directors who have the luxury to do that. But the problem is there’s so much detail, that you forget whats going on with the story. It’s like when I read the Godfather back when I was in college. Took me three years to finish the damn thing. By the end I didn’t know who the fuck was Sonny or Freddy. So what I am trying to say is, I’ve lost the ability to enjoy a long movie. It’s like a superpower has been lifted. Imagine that being a superpower. There’s Iron man , Thor and me who watches long movies. Speaking of the MCU, guess who just signed a contract to make their own Universe? COVID. I read an article on the Hindu that gave a glimpse of the bigger picture. It was like watching Kevin Feige unveil his master plan.

Basically, COVID-19 is like the Black Panther of the MCU. Then there’s the Avengers, The Eternals, The X-men, all kinds of stuff. Remember when Quick Silver appeared in the Avengers? That’s a ‘Zootonic Spillover’. Now they’re saying more and more of the X-men are going to appear alongside the Avengers, which is madness right? A Multiverse of Madness perhaps? (God, I’m so good). Remember how powerful Thanos was? That guy could grind pepper with his chin. And he was purple. Don’t even get me started on the DCEU.
