    • An Open Letter to Francis Ford Coppola

      8 years ago

      Embee90

      I've been gone for a long time. Shit, when I signed up, RvB season 3 was still in the works. I didn't know they were still making episodes. Seems I have some catching up to do.

      For both of you who still have me on your watchlist, here is an open letter to Francis Ford Coppola. A little backstory: my roommate and I recently watched The Virgin Suicides. The short version: terrible. So we decided to write an angry letter to the producer. As soon as I get around to buying some stamps (I think I may have some leftover from two Christmases ago if I look hard enough), we're going to mail it.

      Dear Francis Ford Coppola,

      Allow us to begin by saying what a masterpiece the Godfather movies are. Apocalypse Now. Rumble Fish. All great movies. We don’t want you to misunderstand us; you are one of the finest directors in American cinema. This brings us to our next point.
      Recently, we saw the film The Virgin Suicides, which you executive produced, along with Marie Antoinette, Lost in Translation, and many other Sofia Coppola movies. We don’t mean to say that Ms Coppola is entirely without talent, though her films have been disappointing to say the least. When we heard of the critical acclaim for her directorial debut with The Virgin Suicides, we thought we would give the old girl another chance, expecting a blunt drama about the struggles of teenage life. What we got was one of the finest unintentional comedies of the past decade.
      We believe that the most confusing part of this storytelling debacle is the fact that the main characters still cannot comprehend what happened to the Lisbon sisters. Every time we would begin to be strung along by the plot movement, the narration would interject with some of the eeriest, most unrealistic comments about male teenage life. Perhaps things have changed since the seventies, but we certainly never obsessed over anything quite to the extent that these characters did. This two-dimensional stereotype was almost offensive. In addition, the narration jumped around from topic to topic, even occasionally interjecting with an adult Trip, whom is apparently a recovering alcoholic whose hobbies include ruining Sofia Coppola movies.
      We would like to segue into Mystery Science Theater 3000. We are fans of the series, and often insert our own jokes and commentaries into films we watch, mostly to amuse ourselves. We would state completely unrealistic and unimaginably thin-stretched jokes, which were funny because of the fact that the movie never actually integrated them into the plot. For the first time in our movie-watching careers, we found a film which actually turned our sick jokes into a reality. While watching Stand By Me, we would joke that the characters would turn the corner and trip over the body which the story revolves around. In making a similar joke about The Virgin Suicides, we quickly discovered that Ms Coppola’s suave writing was one step ahead of us. This movie was comical for all the wrong reasons.
      The reason we write to you, Mr. Coppola, is not only because we would prefer Ms Coppola not know her filmmaking pitfalls (sort of like when she played the clarinet in high school, yet you encouraged her anyway), but because The Virgin Suicides could have been a finer adaptation of Jeffrey Eugenides’ novel had Ms Coppola not received the funding required to get her project green-lit. Many greater projects have died because of a lack of funding. We would recommend lending more support to your nephew, who clearly has talent. Sure, he’s a little creepy, but even The Wicker Man was dreadfully amusing.
      We sincerely hope that we have not offended you in sending this; we merely intended to point out the fact that The Virgin Suicides falls short of the critically acclaimed masterpiece it gets credit for. We wish to be perfectly clear in stating that this does not undermine any of your work; being a cinematic figure we can look up to, we would hope you take this letter in stride. Could we make a better movie? Perhaps. If we were to receive the proper funding to get a project off the ground, we would certainly love to try.
      In closing, we would like to thank you for your time in reading our letter. We understand that everyone deserves their opportunity in Hollywood, though not everyone deserves a fifth chance. We would also like to restate that The Godfather Part II is one of the best movies ever made. If you would be so kind as to include a couple of signed photos, we would squeal like a couple of fat schoolgirls.
      And then perhaps Ms Coppola could make a movie about us.
      Sincerely,
      (Myself and my roommate.)
      P.S. – We are greatly looking forward to your next movie.

      It's the little things in life you have to cherish.

      the other day i pulled the short straw at work and had to go push carts for the day. joy. on my way outside, i'm stopped by a manager who asks me to re-train a co-worker because he isn't doing his job properly.

      ...how do you push carts wrong? it's a fairly straightforward job. not to mention the fact that this person has worked here about six months longer than i have, and pushes carts most of the time anyway. i'm surprised he remembers how to breathe.

      while outside, a customer stopped me and pointed to our garden center and asked if that was a grocery store. i didn't even dignify them with a response; i merely gestured to the Basha's behind me and walked away.

      woman walks up to me today with a laptop and a power cable, nothing more. says she needs a refund because it stopped working. i ask if she has a receipt, but of course she doesn't. she purchased it online six months ago. i inform her of the obvious: NO, gesturing behind me to the return policy printed in six inch tall letters, YOU HAVE TO CONTACT THE MANUFACTURER. she gives me the finger and tells me that she hopes we go out of business. i smile and inform her that i hope her day goes just as great as it has been so far.


      maybe she shouldn't have bought a dell inspiron, but that's just my thought.

      PS - how can one seriously hope that wal-mart will go out of business? go back to your rock you stupid fuck.

      the site looks different. i am afraid of change. oh, and i work at wal mart now. oh the stories this place is giving me . . . i had a lady return some perfume, saying only that it was "too oriental." assuming she didn't like the scent, i processed the return, noticing that the perfume had never been opened. she said "i saw on the label that it was oriental and i don't support those people."

      ...

      ......

      yes, ma'am.

      He did pay, but it wasn't enough to cover the entire expense of the concert. U of A sucks at budgeting.

    • queenspammy

      11 years ago

      Well, the total cost of the concert was $500,000, some of that was covered by the touring agent people, some by ticket sales, but there was $150,000 left that the school had to cover.

      I hated those pop up bubbles. They kept giving me links to virus protection software I'd never even heard of, and it was different every time. All of it seemed so legitimate too, like they were all actual virus protection software products. Someone must have had a lot of freetime on their hands to make that virus.
