Lord knows my life is never DULL and I always have something interesting/scintillating to discuss! Right? Uh huh. You know what? I am seriously considering writing a screenplay/script! I mean, Juno was a cute movie and all, but I didn't think it was that extraordinary you know? And yet, Diablo Cody got an Oscar for it, and she's not even in the business! It was her first attempt, and she had a major hit! I mean, I have enough interesting things going on in my life, that I think I could actually write an interesting screenplay out of it! My hilariously dysfunctional Hispanic background, my eternal gay angst, the "love" of my job, my dealings with the weirdos at the bar, and my hedonistic sex life would make for one really fascinating movie damnit! Who's gonna play me though? Wes Bentley? Tobey Maguire? Jim Sturgess? Steve Buscemi? Oh God. Buscemi is a great actor, but he's so butt ugly and too old to play me. And I just don't think I'm that hideous. I'll stick with Bentley or Maguire I suppose, but I'm not a casting director so what do I know? I just gotta get this thing written first and foremost; insert witty dialogue and dramatic scenes here and there.
I watched my first ever Judy Garland/Mickey Rooney movie called Babes in Arms. It was entertaining, and I could not believe the high energy Rooney had back in his youth. There was a bit of a racist blackface minstrel show they put on, but those were the times back in 1939 right? Ironically, the British film Beautiful Thing has an English black girl in whiteface singing along to her musical idol Mama Cass! LOLOL! Yeah, this movie about working class Brits and two young men who discover their sexuality, was quite insightful into the daily life of regular people in England. I had a hard time understanding their heavy accents, but enjoyed the movie overall. Funny how one thinks that living somewhere like England will be glamorous, and yet normal people face the same daily struggles that we can all universally identify with.
I've watched/studied enough movies thanks to Netflix, that I honestly think I oughtta give writing my own screenplay a shot.
