Just finished the final edit and proofing of DAVID GOLDON’S first book … ENGLE BYEN: A PLACE TO CALL HOME.
No matter how many times I have worked through various sections separately, or read through the entire story from start to finish, this last full read through still managed to reduce me to tears at the end. David is a great writer, this is a wonderful story. I really want to see this as a movie or on TV … desperately.
Decided to go to my hairdresser this morning, on a whim, to get a shorter restyle. No appointments so just drop by, queue and wait your turn. I arrived there 15 minutes before they open so I could be first in.
He started cutting my hair, two others arrived after me and took a seat in the waiting area. Then, this big, loud guy comes in, sits in the cutting chair next to me and interrupts the conversation I’m having with Steve, the hairdresser. I understand immediately that he is loud because he is insecure but he still annoyed me.
Then Steve and I both realise that last time I was there, this same guy came in and sat in the same place and did the same thing … Steve was amazed. I had the chance to explain to him that was just another example of the magical ‘synchronicity’ that happens in my life. The universe’s way of showing me that I am exactly where I should be in my life journey. LOVE IT!
Not GREAT At All
After all the hype for this movie at the cinema I thought this would be a good night’s entertainment.
Wrong! What a waste of 100’s of millions of dollars.
The CGI and costumes were excellent but it lacked the most important, basic element … a compelling or even interesting story. This crap should never have been made and the money better spent on feeding the poor or housing the homeless. Sometimes Hollywood can have its head so far up its own ass that it is just an embarrassment. No movie deserves to get even to production stage without a powerful, compelling, engaging script.
We gave up 30 minutes into it and I’m going to throw it in the bin, doesn’t deserve to be in my library. Thank god I only paid $8 for it on special.
Stupid choice to do Matt Damon, not even you could save this wreck.
