Happy Monday! I was up way way too late yesterday watching two disappointing movies back to back. Good news is, we snuck into the second one so I didn’t have to pay twice, just watch twice. Anyway, keep me awake! Ask me questions!
As always, you can ask me anything from the personal (“what were the movies?”) to the specific and factual (“how do you avoid paying for a movie?”) to the general discussion (“sneaking into a movie, moral or immoral?”)
The only rule is, you have to let answer first! The discussion just goes better that way. But once I answer, feel free to leap in with your own thoughts.
Now, question for you! Inspired by the two movies I saw last night:
Would you rather watch a movie with a great idea poorly executed, or an unoriginal idea perfectly executed?
For example, Mohenjo Daro was a good idea (epic historical set in ancient times with Hrithik saving a city) poorly executed (plot meandered, bad songs, etc.).
Sultan was an idea based on dozens of other films, with a tone pulled from Bajrangi Bhaijaan, nothing really risky there. But the songs were great and the performances top notch, and the production quality right up there.
Which would you rather watch?
For me, I would always go for the ambitious idea. Even if the execution is off, I just want movies to go big or go home.
