Learning from Failure – Mom & Dad save the World
Sometimes a really bad movie, can teach you a lot.
So I recently watched this movie:
I exaggerated a little. It’s not “really” bad, it is – at worst – just below mediocre. It does have an impressive cast which gives their all in performances. The production design is also quite impressive with its sets and costumes.
So, as a writer/storyteller, you know how people will always tell you “show, don’t tell”? Now I understand this can be confusing sometimes if you’re not sure what “showing” vs “telling” means. In a movie is it just about what’s on screen vs what’s told?
Well watch this movie, and you will (hopefully) finally grasp the difference.
