We are close to the end
My dear friend
The essays are pouring in
Flooding desks and inboxes
We are so close to the end
My dear friend
Soon summer light
Will flood through the blinds
As we dream of vacations, internships, and family
We are close but not there
Hail to hot coffee and comfy chairs and the clicking of key boards
Hail to finishing with a purpose
Another year accounted for
The seniors we will miss
But because we are close but not there yet
We can have an evening to celebrate much deserved bliss
How can love be so powerful but not a physical thing? Wait, isn’t love a force which binds us together, however the physicality is a byproduct and the actual love the idea. Love can be a physical display yes, but in its pure conceptual form is love boundless? How can love be so powerful yet we cannot hold it? How can love bring the greatest happiness but also the most miserable pain one can conceive? There is a dual concept of love at work. I feel pure love is not meant to hurt. Hurt is difficult to explain and reconcile. But Love. It exists in that smile when you see the one you love and you grin like a fool. Only it doesn’t matter if you are thought foolish, what matters is this force. What matters is this physical, emotional, sexual, psychological feeling happening all at once. It this rush that overcomes your body. In this way, what matters is love.
The hype for this movie was mind boggling. Theaters were shut down as a threat by North Korea was made. I still desperately wanted to see it, not merely for controversy’s sake but because the trailer seemed to imply that this movie would be an incredible comedy. However, it failed pretty grandly on all fronts. This movie did not live up to the expectations at all.
Seth Rogen did an incredible job is this film and that needs to be acknowledged. It was not enough to save this movie. However, his counterpart, James Franco did a strange over acting that was part of the downfall of this film. It was awkward and didn’t create a good chemistry between the lead actors that Seth was doing his part to create.
I was so excited for this film, that I do not even know what to say in regards to how much it let me down. I want to reiterate that Seth Rogen is a great actor and perhaps if the plot was less outrageous or James Franco was replaced with a different actor that it would have done well. I say, this movie is not worth an evening of your time.
