inside Screener Season

Me: we got our first screener! We got Sully!

Husband: I’m not watching that.

Me: Why not? It’s supposed to be good! Our friend is in it also!

Husband: Because it’s an actual thing that just happened. We know exactly what happens because it literally just happened.

Me: ….Okay, yeah. Good point.

Husband: Right?

Me: Yeah. The movie industry is so greedy for story now that the MOMENT that something compelling happens, some studio hires some writer to basically just start transcribing life. And so nothing is interesting anymore unless it actually happened. Imagination is dead.

Husband: exactly.

A moment.

Me: Okay, but I am going to watch Sully.

Husband: Have fun with that!
