When I was younger, I craved seeing challenging films that would help stretch my intellectual acumen and emotional experiences. This usually meant like black and white picturesâ€¦with subtitlesâ€¦taking place in France or Chileâ€¦focusing on like Pinochet or the Holocaust. Now that Iâ€™m older, possibly pass the prime of my mind with an average, and yet nonetheless complicated load of adult responsibilities, I need simple. (apologies to New Yorker and NPR friends.) If I get to go out, I want to see a movie where things explode and pretty people run around with guns. If thatâ€™s your fare, then I can wholeheartedly recommend Knight and Day as Not Bad At All.
That was the highest grade you could get from my Versification prof, who rated our assignments as Not Bad, Not Too Bad, Not Bad At All. The negative end of the spectrum was Not Good, Not Too Good, and Not Good At Allâ€¦um, I am obviously inflating her scale since there are only five grades you can getâ€¦unless you got a W, like I did for certain classes (withdrawal) but in my defense these were sciences and classes with 500 people in it. What the what.
