The Life and Death of Peter Sellers

Yeah, so I went and saw the Life and Death of Peter Sellers today.

I liked it,

But....

I was a little confused by the artistic choices made in the movie. As a film major, I know that unless you are a pretentious hack (which is possible) you have some reason for everything you do in a movie. (Aside from 'because I thought it would be cool')

For example, they repeatedly violated the "180 Degree Rule" (Click here for a really good explanation of the rule) and they did this weird type of narration, which I think if I tryed to explain it would make it far worse for you. Suffice it to say, it was a great movie, but I think the people who will enjoy it the most are the ones who know all of his movies and his life story already. Mostly because his life is so strange that you almost believe you are watching some hyped up ollywood crap.

I'd say hands down the best scene was when Geoffery Rush is playing Peter Sellers as Dr. Strangelove while sitting at a luncheon with his mother. It is amazing, because the makeup and the acting are sooo good, that my eyes thought that it was Peter Sellers.

Ryan H. would probably have loved it even more than me.

Anyway, I got really mad today because I went to do laundry, and when I poured the detergent into the cap I noticed something odd. You know how detergent has a fairly thick viscosity? Well, it was very thin and runny--AKA someone was stealing my laundry detergent and topping it back off with WATER.

So I've devised a plan to teach the thieves a lesson. I'm going to put bleach in my detergent and leave it as a trap for the next time it gets used. Then their whole load of laundry will be ruined, and they can't say anything about it without admitting to using my laundry detergent! HAHAHA! Reminder to my readers: Don't get me pissed off. I'm a nice guy with a lot of patience... but I'm vindictive as hell.

Sorry, I just had to get that off of my chest. Have a good night!

Sorry the movie wasn't what you expected but it stills sounds like it was pretty good. Especially the Dr. Strangelove scene. (Mein Fuhrer! I can valk!)
That's pretty messed up that someone took your laundry detergent. Probably some worthless pov of a college student. I'm not so sure that you're plan will work without the risk of your clothes getting bleached as well, but good luck! That would be really funny if it worked and you saw the person flip out because their clothes where whitified. (Aw snap! My clothes have been whitified!)
Have it your way....I mean....have a good day.............................................................(no McDonald's product placement was included in the making of this comment)
