Film Studies: College degree or Certification to be an Asshole?
Last semester I learned that I unintentionally acquired a minor in film studies. Due to my acute attraction to movies, I ended up filling the bulk of my elective options with film classes, resulting in an academic minor. And while there are many factors in the discussion of “what exactly defines an asshole”, cinema is pretty high on that list (Cinema falls somewhere between “the probability that you will wear a beanie in the dead of summer”, and “your familiarity with the Kid Rock discography”, to be exact).
Nobody likes that guy who interjects in friendly discussion of Fast and Furious 6 and talks about indie films...
- or that friend who after connecting your Facebook to Rotten Tomatoes, you discover secretly writes 500 word reviews for box office hits for seemingly no reason other than for his/her's own pleasure.
Realistically a minor in film studies means virtually nothing whatsoever other than the fact that those who possess one can say "You wouldn't get it, you didn't study film in college."
Last week, Marcus Smart was punched a hole in a wall following a 123-108 loss to the Wizards.
Last night, Marcus Smart made the play of the night by winning a jump-ball with 14 seconds left while the Celtics held a mere 2-point lead.
With the Boston Celtics' 109-104 win over Toronto last night, the Celtics have continued to close the gap between the Cavaliers and the rest of the Eastern Conference.
While Isaiah Thomas has continued his trend of 4th quarter stardom, putting up a 15+ point 4th quarter for the 10th time this season (twice as many as any other player); Marcus Smart has maintained unsung prominence.
Smart may not show up on the box score, but he shows up on the film where it counts.
With Smart's versatility he is an invaluable asset, and no one in Boston should regret the Celtics taking him 6th overall in 2014.
