Hey, Terrence Malick
has been moonlighting as Zach Snyder
all these years. If Zach actually does uphold the feel of this trailer throughout the entire film I will probably be blown away. After Watchmen and 300 (I did not suffer through Sucker Punch) I cannot imagine Snyder having the patience or the talent though. His style is great but not in the high-art-style that he is imitating here.
I will see it, I will probably enjoy it, I do not have high hopes.
We spend so much of our time trying to understand the violence in our lives. The reasoning behind it, the how and why. These shootings always bring out the theories and speculations. We are quick to blame violent video games, movies, music, the devil. I think it is all much simpler than we want to admit. We are animals. Just because we have evolved into creatures that can philosophize and create societies does not mean we are truly out of the trees yet. We as human beings must strive to control, limit our baser instincts, our primal urges. It is not something that we can ever hope to master, it is constant, it will be in us until the end of time. Knowing this we must strive to be kind, to do good, to rise above it.
A purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whoever is around to be loved.
When you realize that Harry Potter is a rich jock who’s riding on the names of his parents and accepting worship for something that just happened to him without any agency on his part, the whole storyline gets a little… odd.
