Everything Must Go

everything_must_goWill Ferrell has done several small indie films over his career and Everything Must Go is his latest. Anytime I see him on screen I want to laugh, but this is decidedly not a comedic role. He plays a successful sales executive whose entire world crumbles around him one day. He loses his job, he loses his wife, and heads back to the bottle.

There are a lot of things going on in this movie. I kind of latched onto a couple of them, and it turned out maybe those weren't what the movie was really about. Actually, I'm not sure what the movie was about, or what you were supposed to take away from it.

The future of this blog

I don't watch movies anymore. Well. That is a lie. I still watch them, just not very often. I don't have the time to sit and watch 3 to 5 movies a week like I used to. Then when I do watch a movie I definitely don't take the time to write anything about it on this blog. I've also been really bad about keeping up with the movie news. This means I haven't had much to say lately. I'd like to think I'll get back at it at some point, but right now this blog is suffering.

 I still plan to write because I enjoy doing it. I just don't know how often I will posting movie reviews. I've always favored posting long-ish reviews when I watch a film, but I might move towards shorter posts that aren't necessarily a review; rather just some quick thoughts. I don't want this blog to die, but that is the direction things are going. I guess we will see what I come up with.

Thanks for reading.
