Captain Phillips versus Captain Morgan
I was hoping it was a trend that would quickly pass. The shakey camera perspective. Or as I like to call it, Puke cam. The filming of video for a movie or a television show with the sole purpose of making it seem move realistic. Let me tell you something, filming with out a tripod for "Realities sake" fools NO one! It does not make us think someone was magically there at the moment Tom Hanks was pretending to be Captain Phillips. It only makes me think you were friends with Captain Morgan at the time you were filming... Guess what folks out there in Cinema land? I don't want realism. If I wanted reality, I wouldn't pay the 16 year old attendant at the Movie theater almost $10. for a ticket so I could eat stale, artificially flavored pop corn, contraband licorice sticks and JuJu Bee's, while sitting in a dark room with a bunch of strangers who may or may not have showered that day. The Oscars would not happen if the general public wanted reality. Give me a film that was well documented with the help of a tripod. There is a reason that movie theaters don't have vomit bags tucked into the chairs. We shouldn't need them...
Till next time,
Use a tripod foe Goodness sake!
