Not Making This Up!
Friday, January 17, 2020
It was a damp and occasionally drizzly day today, and I got quite a bit done on my art project (iris folding for beginners, Scan n Cut for beginners), and when I took a break, I found that Amazon Prime has suggested a movie that they think I will like...
I haven’t watched it but it has 4 stars, even with the craziest plot summary I’ve ever heard... this is how Amazon describes this movie, titled “The VelociPastor”
“ “After losing his parents, a priest travels to China, where he inherits a mysterious ability that allows him to turn into a dinosaur. At first horrified by this new power, a prostitute convinces him to use it to fight crime. And ninjas.”
Oh my! I am just stunned by this description of a plot… At first I thought it must be one of those peculiar Asian movies, that you cannot tell whether it’s a comedy or a drama, or Kung Fu chop chop, but in looking at the names of the actors on the Amazon listing they all seem to be western names, and not Chinese Japanese or Korean… And the director seems to have a western name as well…
Soooooo, this movie has everything! A religious figure! Who is an orphan! A dinosaur! A prostitute! Probably Chinese food! And maybe even ninjas! And I would have been inclined to say Hollywood does not make movies like this Anymore, but, maybe they do!
