As for today, I have a quandary. I've been able to find a movie for each letter of the alphabet to write about, even letter X, although I was nearly shut down by the A to Z Advisory Council. But I am not afraid of them anymore. What can they do to me on the last day of the challenge?
There were three films that have been nominated with the letter Z, all three are not that great. The least worst is Zorba the Greek. Granted Anthony Quinn was nominated for Best Actor, the film is painful to watch. Even at the end when everything is destroyed with the tree moving attempt down the mountain you think Basil would have the normal reaction of strangling Zorba. No, he asks him to teach him how to dance. Stupid ending, almost as bad as the American remake of The Vanishing.
The next worst film is Zero Dark Thirty which I am still trying to figure out what was this movie about? I've narrowed it down to a vehicle to funnel laundered drug money or some propaganda piece from a hidden office in the White House basement. And the worst is Z by the horrible director Costa Gavras, but I apologize for being redundant there.
So that leaves me no other option to find the next best film with letter Z in the title. Or at least one that is much better than those three. And I found it, the 1974 science fiction disaster Zardoz. That's right with Sean Connery running around half naked as Zed the brutal exterminator who sneaks into the Vortex to teach the immortals about death.
Am I thumbing my nose at the A to Z Advisory Council? You bet I am. But I can type faster than they can shut me down. I'm going off the rails on the last day and they can't stop me. (If there was a way to symbolize a mic drop, it would be here)
This is the A to Z Advisory Council interrupting this blog since it is not following the guidelines and, hey wait where is everyone? Did we miss the blog? How is this my fault? I'm the one who said we should get it to go. Oh right, now that is just insulting. What? You actually like Zardoz? Fine, we'll move on to the next blog.
