Why Did That Happening?

I was prepared to do a hearty post recapping Friday night's festivities, but I can't do that on good conscience. While it was an absolute blast, the lingering bitterness has made me not want to waste my time. Thanks to the posse who attended, but I'm afraid this was a case of drinking too much of Night's Hard Lemonade. So much so that I don't think I'm ever going to drink it again. For those of you who are convinced that I love everything and only know how to write positively, check out this long-winded diatribe over at Hammer to Nail. It had to be done. To satisfy the diehards, here's a pic of the Avant-Retarde Posse...


Don't just take my word for it, though. Let Vern show you the light right here.

    Read your post over at hammer to nail, but didn't feel like signing in to leave a comment - so here I am.

    I actually didn't hate the movie, didn't love it, but didn't hate it. Someone in the theater I was at hated it, though. In the scene where the army guy and the cars are talking to someone on the phone, this guy jumped out of his seat, said "I'm going to go play video games" and then shouted really loudly "THIS MOVIE SUCKS"! He came back about 15 minutes later and convinced the rest of his friends to leave too.

    I think the major issue that hasn't really been considered, is that the whole premise of the movie is flawed. The reason the plants are killing people is because it's supposed to be "a warning" for humans to be more considerate of the environment. However, why would the human race ever react to "the happening" by being kinder to the plants THAT KILL THEM? Wouldn't the reaction be to deforest the earth? Is this secretly an anti-environment movie? After all, its only safe to be inside, totally sealed off. And it's certainly not safe in liberal, environment-friendly places like the northeast or France.
