Movies are fake!

posted in Past Goodness on Nov 28, 2005

I’ve finally figured out that movies are not real.  They make them darned things so real, I tells ya.  But then I saw this commercial for a snowboarding movie, and they, of course, say stuff like, “You don’t even want to be on these slopes if you don’t want to be in a life or death situation.”  Yeah, ok, we got it.  You’re extreme.  Yadda Yadda.  But that’s not what made me realize that the movie was not real.  It was the fact that all of the shots they took were from a helicopter.  If you’re in a “life and death situation,” how long is it going to take for that chopper to land and pick your broken body up?  That’s a Life-Line right there.  I guess if you fell off the side of a cliff then you could be screwed.  But if you get stuck in the snow, then the copter just throws down a ladder.  Yeah.  Really extreme there, Mr. …Snowboardy Guy.
