You Know Who....
Click on the pictures to read the balloons.
I have mentioned more than once (as people bragging often do) that in most movies that before all unfolds I can tell you who is going to get killed, who did it, and the surprised ending. I ruin movies for Anna all the time.
This is partly due to watching the details… things said that has no reason to be said, or sometimes what not is said but insinuated.
I developed this talent, if you want to call it a talent through the years. I think I first (harp music lightly playing) realized movies have certain formulas by reading HUMBUG magazine edited by Harvey Kurtzman, after he left MAD and TRUMP folded.
Cartoonist Jack Davis and Kurtzman had a regular – irregular feature in HUMBUG called “You know Who Gets Killed”
I picked out a good cross-samplings the feature to show you what I am talking about.
And that planted the seed in my head “you know who killed them”, “you know who is going to live to the end” and so on.
