Shut Up, Terrence Malick

Your new movie looks fucking stupid.

One day a long time ago, I watched The New World. I was really stoked to see a cool and subversive piece about Pocahontas. What I got was a lame as shit, boring ass movie with wheat fields in it.

And then another time, I watched Tree Of Life. I was really stoked to see a cool and subversive piece about the cyclical nature of humanity and masculinity. What I got was a lame as shit, boring ass movie with wheat fields in it.

Then, I saw the trailer to his new movie, and while it's called Song To Song, I'm pretty sure it was once called A Bunch Of White People Doing Boring Shit At A Music Festival. 

If you're into it, cool. I guess. Fassbender, Gosling, Mara, and Portman can't be a bad combo. I, however, will not be tricked again. Maybe there will be a dumb dinosaur at the beginning, getting obliterated by a meteor to some Austin band like Explosions In The SkyJust go to Austin and see Explosions In The Sky.

The Thin Red Line was cool, though.
