Not much can be said about these types of movies. By "these types of movies" I mean the movie about the loser kid that has a dream and decides to go for it one day makes it come true and all that other shit. It stars Jake Gyllenhaal, who is making some fucking moves in this industry. Although he's lost some steam via Day After Tomorrow he might gain some ground in 2005. And I know mad amounts of people who're on the Donnie Darko tip and know this fucker just for that movie.

Anyways, this movie was on point. Especially the acting. I didn't know so many New Yorkers could pull of the hillbilly accent. It seemed a bit long and too much of that "keep the faith alive" shit I talked about earlier.

"The true story of Homer Hickam, a coal miner's son who was inspired by the first Sputnik launch to take up rocketry against his father's wishes."


In conclusion, this quote comes to mind from the Jesus of screenwriting, Charlie Kaufman (Adaptation.):

"I don't want to cram in sex or guns or car chases or characters learning profound life lessons or growing or coming to like each other or overcome obstacles to succeed in the end. The book [or movie] isn't like that, and life isn't like that, it just isn't."



PS Bubble Boy was the fucking shit!
