A Plea To All Filmmakers, Present And Future

May 14, 2021

For the love of mercy, please stop using the Wilhelm scream. I know it’s become a tradition, but the novelty of it played out years ago, and now all it does is scream “I’m making a movie!” and destroying whatever scene you’re trying to create.

Then Verses Now

My reaction to watching The Red Balloon when I was a child:  “They . . . they . . . KILLED it!  Wh-Why would they DO that?”

My reaction to watching The Red Balloon today:  “Wait, balloons, wait!  HE didn’t kill it, those other kids did it.  You’re getting your revenge on the wrong kid!  Don’t do it, I’m begging you, don’t do it!”

The moral of this?

Time may have changed the way I perceive things, but I still think that film, cute as it is for the most part, has a truly horrific ending.
