#1 Movie of All-Time
#1 Romantic Comedy
Analyzing Jon Amiel: Happy Birthday this guy had tried a totally different styles of movies with very good results:
Was intending to watch True Romance, a movie that... shame on me I haven't see yet. But somehow I decided to revisit one of my favorite performance and underrated cult movies from Christian Slater. See the first time I saw this movie was on TV, I was underage when it came to theater which made it impossible for me to see it on the big screen, if it ever got the big screen on my country. No matter what, I caught it on TV late at night because that was the time you get the good movies there. We don't have channels like in USA, the channels are all varieties, so they compete to each other in ratings with the soap operas, the movies they get from outside and the TV series they got from outside, so ... when do you get to see cult movies? never. But there was an special soul that worked late at night in one TV channel and he use to the put those movies that were rated, that will never compete for rating, the ones that were good, kind of a cult movies. That's how I got to see "The Commitments", "The Breakfast Club", "St. Elmo's Fire", "Threesome", "Fatal Attraction", "Porky's", "T.A.P.S." and "Pump Up The Volume".
"Pump Up The Volume" has some kind of an ageless message, yet some people may think is a cliche. While watching the movie I was remember how when you are a teenager, you always complain that you cannot express yourself, you complain about the system and the society, and so your parents and their parents did. I was also thinking that now we live in a world with many extra facilities to express your opinions and ideas, you are in a era where you can be listen, watched, or read everywhere. But the ageless message (at least for me) it was that no matter how your situation may suck, your school, your house, your friends (or the lack of them), you must do something. I liked the fact that "Harry Hard" was a shy smart guy that wasn't craving for attention, yet.. he had some problems to express himself, in a world and in a era that it wasn't that easy; still, he found the way to do something creative, and without high pretensions he was listened by many and inspired many more.
We live in a era where we have Podcast that can be heard and Blogs that can be written (and read) everywhere. Internet is such a huge and powerful way of communication and expression that is already taken for granted and therefore not all the time is wisely used, is like a telephone and TV, is not a new thing anymore, is part of almost everyone life, so much, that there are some people that cannot imagine their life without it.
So this is for you, the one that gets creative with blogs, fan fiction histories, outstanding reviews, tribute videos, hilarious podcast, you are being read, people is listening to you, users are watching your videos, it is still important, you are reaching somebody, somehow in the other side of the world and you may be inspiring some one out there too, so keep yourself creative and use this tool wisely.
Welcome to the 20's: Happy Birthday to OLD KING CLANCY, make three wishes so they can happen to you!
