I watched the movie Good Time last night and it made me realize how much we’re in need of better stories on the screen. That movie was just terrible. It seemed like practice for the creators. Like they didn’t actually give a shit if it meant something to other people besides themselves.
I can write a better story than that. In fact I am writing a better story than that. And if it gets made into a movie, it’s not going to be like Good Time and replace bad story with experimental original scores and drawn-out close ups. It’s going to be a good story. No experimentation required.
Movie people: Know what your story is before you make a movie about it. Movies like Good Time are a waste of time. Good practice for the creators but not good for anyone else.
