I attempt to watch Tree of life.

I decided I would watch tree of life because I'm cool like that. I usually have a lot of patience with people in movies. I will sit through 2 hours of a guy talking to his table fan. But this movie was a test. And I failed.

Twenty minutes into it I'm a little confused about the depressing family but still intrigued. Then something weird happens. A screensaver comes on. That's right. One minute we're watching people and the next minute we're watching pretty pictures from outerspace. After this a volcano begins to erupt. For like 8 minutes we're just watching bright orange stuff spewing onto the screen. With opera music in the background. Really intense opera. Then they cut to a montage of life under the ocean featuring giant chunks of seaweed. At this point I'm thinking maybe somebody hit the wrong button in the control room. The Discovery channel is on for some reason. I continue to watch because I figure eventually someone will realise their mistake. The depressing family will reappear. More time goes by. The audience of 4 people is getting restless. It has now become a contest to see who among us will walk out first. Then they show a fucking baby dinosaur and that was my cue to walk out.

P.S. If you've watched the entire movie please let me know wtf happened. Many thanks. BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging. BlogBooster is a multi-service blog editor for iPhone, Android, WebOs and your desktop
