Finding Nemo and Fault

Disclaimer: There’s a mini review in this post about G.I.Joe: Retaliation so be forewarned.

Last Sunday I watched G.I.Joe: Retaliation with a bunch of critics friends.

I liked it. I really did.

Honest to God, this was me during each scene.

I liked EVERYTHING about it. Maybe because the only expectations I had were that I expect the Rock to be there, and to be himself, to be awesome.

Expectations met.

Sigh.

Sorry what were we talking about?

Oh yes! G.I. Joe! So apparently a lot of people didn’t like it because it wasn’t according to the comics and it was a horrible plot and Channing Tatum shouldn’t have died and blah blah. Which I think are all valid reasons. But I was a little annoyed at all the nitty gritty excuses that were being used to say it was a bad movie.

This led to one of the greatest movie revelations of all time.

As I was ranting with a friend about the stupid reasons people use to not like a movie, we realized we stick stamps of approval on people by the movies they like and don’t like. For example so-and-so has bad taste or good taste or random taste. This “taste” approval sticker is in comparison to how we ourselves perceive the movie to rate.

If someone liked Inception, Dark Knight and The King’s Speech, I’d immediately put that person in the Good Taste category.

But the truth is sometimes we like crappy movies. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched Twilight.

That’s when I realized,

THEORY: If you’re looking for faults in a movie, you WILL find it. And even if it’s Twilight the crappiest movie ever produced, you’ll still like it if you choose to.

So while debating, me and my friend decided to test out that theory.

Step 1: Pick a movie everyone loves.

Step 2: Realize no such movie exists.

Step 3: Pick instead a movie you absolutely LOVE and find fault in it.

THIS brought me to:

THE GREATEST MOVIE REVELATIONS OF ALL TIME:

That there is absolutely nothing wrong or imperfect about the movie Finding Nemo

Go on. I dare you to poke.

I dare you to try to find something wrong with your favourite movie.

Then move on to Step 4: Cry in regret as you never look at that movie the same way again.

Thinking of: Putting my defenses up.
