Poems - Films.

by royst


Science fiction
Fiction or fact
Good films, bad films,
Actors who act,
Studios, producers
A director’s chair,
All part of films and its market share.

Money made,
Millions of pounds,
Location found
Sets and surrounds,
Cameras and sounds,
All part of films and its market share.

A director shouts cut
An end to a scene,
Set up the next shot while I check on the theme
A quick hot dog snack then back on the set,
Cut … take 2, let’s get this correct.

The film has been edited, released
In cinemas everywhere people are pleased
Must see that movie, God it’s good,
Robert De Niro plays a Mafia hood.

In Britain our films are not as big,
As US box office hits,
Jurassic Park took $500 million,
The Piano, Age of Innocence and Shindler’s List,
At award ceremonies, Celebs get drunk,
Nominations for BAFTA‘s and Oscar awards,
Who was it that said film is this century’s art?
No Attenborough, or Sir Dickie for short.

i wrote this originally in 1994 when those movies mention were at the box office... so i guess by now it's very outdated.
