I’m gonna show you how the Irish get things done!
As per usual, in order to get a grasp of what I’m responding to, read what Edgar had to say about the movie at Between The Seats.
There’s a saying in my family, “when the going gets tough, the tough get going!” I have no idea what the hell that means, I have no idea why my family ever adopted that saying. Sure, we’re Irish, so we’re tough, but we’re never going anywhere or doing anything. We live our lives and get on with them day by day. Where the tough get going in that scenario I haven’t a clue. My family has a lot of sayings like this, and I’ve never actually thought about it before but most of them are freaking ridiculous. Not only do they not apply to my family as its structured today but they probably didn’t apply to my family in the past either. What does all of this have to do with a discussion of Road To Perdition, specifically Edgar’s review of Road To Perdition? I haven’t a damn clue, but I started typing and by golly as the saying goes in my family, “when you start something you better well finish it!”
As for your rebuttal, well, Edgar, there is one sentence that I can supply that would encapsulate all of my feelings about said review. But I’m not going to do that, and why am I not going to do that? Well, I’m not going to do that because I have a chance to write down some words and waste some time in a long winded fashion. I don’t know what I’m going to waste my time on, I don’t really have much on my mind today. I could talk about hockey, but that’s been upsetting me lately, stupid injuries and bad play. I could talk about international football and how Team USA just failed to qualify for the upcoming Olympic games. But frankly, I’m still too miffed about a team with the resources they have screwing up that badly. I could talk about the movies I’ve seen recently, but I already have a column for that. I could just keep talking until the post reaches the five hundred word mark, but let’s be honest, no one wants that. I have nothing to talk about, and it’s all your fault Edgar!
You see, your review of Road To Perdition was well written and it echoed my thoughts in every way. You wrote so splendiferously about a film that I love that I have nothing to offer in the way of a rebuttal. As I read your review I found myself grinning and silently nodding as word after word went from the computer screen to my eye balls and finally to the recesses of my brain. What can I offer in response to a review that voices my opinion of the film so completely? The options were twofold, and I’ve just about exhausted option one and most likely wasted a lot of people’s time with my inane drivel in the form of long winded stream of consciousness writing. That only leaves the second option, and since I’ve reached the five hundred word mark it’s about time I give you what I should have given you from the start. Edgar, my finely dressed Canadian friend, I give you my rebuttal in the form of one sentence.
Edgar, I agree with everything you just said, great stuff!
Go and read Edgar’s rebuttal at Between The Seats, why don’t ya!
