Why no Chicken Run? [Dec. 19th, 2006|12:20 am]
[Tags|, ]
[mood |quixoticquixotic]

A few people asked this in the Chickens in Cinema Poll. The answer is simple.

In the section where it would have been most appropriate to mention it, I was talking about classics, films that have been around for quite a few years and have shown their value to fans of fowl in film.

The chicken being killed in the marketplace in Emmanuelle, the rooster shadow puppet in Citizen Kane, the rubber chicken in Dark Star... these are all important parts in the narratives of their respective films, giving us important character moments or helping set the scene.

Chicken Run has yet to prove that it was more than a cynical attempt to cash in on the easy money to be made in the highly lucrative chicken-fan market. Once you understand the significance of the chicken sandwich in 2001: A Space Odyssey, then my children, maybe you'll be able to watch Chicken Run with new eyes.

Went to bed and shortly afterwards my legs started hurting like mad, so now three hours later, I've both given and gotten up since the pain's not letting me sleep. Rare it's that bad, fortunately.

So a catch-up feels warranted.
