Welcome, to all of those insane enough to walk this blog!

As you might have noticed, this here blog is one big archive of the ramblings of an insane author. So insane, in fact, that I wouldn't be surprised if you went mad just reading said blog...Good luck ;)


I lied. This is not, in fact, a "directory" as the title above might suggest...This is merely a warning of what you might find on this blog. I believe I have already warned you of the insane ramblings archived in this blog, but I must say, if you are not prepared for the tomfooleries that can be found here, you might just want to close this tab, shut your computer down, and walk away slowly in order to keep your OWN sanity in check. Fair warning >;)

Why are movies so predictable?

Okay, so I know that if you have watched a guy on youtube called FLuffee, then what I'm about to say will be a bit deja vu-ish, (and yes, I know that's not proper English!) but it has to be said. It seems like any movie I watch, whether it be a scary movie, a romantic comedy, or action, or whatever, me and my family (or whoever I happen to be watching the movie with) always know what's going to happen next. We always know how the story will go, even if we haven't seen the movie till just then (or TV show, because we can predict those too). Here's a few examples:

Romantic comedy: Boy meets girl (or girl meets boy), at first they may not get along, but somewhere down the road, one of them realizes their love for the other, although the other is still clueless, then one of them lies about something big (their true identity, the fact that they're getting married, or already are married, one of them has a kid, or one of them has pretended to have a kid although in real life they don't, one lied about being really rich, etc. etc. etc.), the other gets really angry and feels betrayed because of said lie, the other feels really bad, and tries to make it better, at first it doesn't work, even after the big "I'm sorry, I love you more than anything in the world" speech, the one who lied then goes and pouts somewhere, all depressed because the other couldn't forgive them, then when the one thinks their life is over, the other shows up, and says some witty little line that no one ever says in true life, and they kiss and live happily ever after.

Scary movie: Usually starts out normal, maybe a young girl moves into an old home with her single father, she's looking around the house, and maybe finds a secret room behind a wall in the closet, the room is all dusty and creepy, she gets creeped out and leaves, maybe she has a nightmare about the room over the next few nights, but just tells herself that it's just her imagination going wild on her, she goes to a new school and meets new people, the new friends of hers all say her house is haunted, and that she shouldn't stay there, she doesn't believe them, maybe over the next few nights she starts getting curious about what her friends told her (maybe that someone really creepy died in the house, or some crazy person murdered their child in the house), and she goes back into the room in the middle of the night, all alone, in her pajamas, with only one flashlight, which will most likely go out as soon as she enters the room, but she won't go back and get new batteries, she'll just keep going, and then maybe a creepy ghost/monster/creepy killer guy will jump out at her, and then later on in the movie (after she thinks she's gone crazy, because she told her father and all her friends about the ghost/monster/creepy killer guy, and none of them believe her), the ghost/monster/creepy killer guy is coming after her, and right before it drags to hell/eats/kills her, she finally figures out how to kill it (tell it how it died and that it can leave now/use a certain weapon to kill it(vampire and/or werewolf)/push it out a window, drown it, or accidentally electrocute it), and she lives happily ever after, although changed for the better from the experience.

Action: Either the main character kills everybody, or he kills every body and in the end kills himself/gets killed. Needless to say, lots and lots of people get grotesquely murdered, and there's a lot of blood and gore. Although, sometimes, there is a relatively happy ending, like the two main characters kill all the bad guys, and end up together. But really, it always has a lot of death, whether it turns out good in the end or not.

See what I mean? I have just explained the main story line for many different movies/TV shows that I have watched (and that's a lot, because we have over a thousand DVDs). I just want to see a movie where the bad guy wins, you know? Although, if that happened, I'd probably be pissed off, and write a blog about how the good characters all died, and the stupid bad guy won.
...There's just no pleasing some people...
Blog ya later, Miss Eccentric.
