Well the Max Payne movie sucked. It just didnt to seem to take the time that the 2 computer games that I loved. Im not sure if it was teh time of the film, bad acting but stuff didnt seem to click, there was no sense of desperation as the character jumps out as being hard done by in a basement for no good reason so that makes it hard to have apathy for the lead role.
Like when southpark did the parody of Indiana jones where lucas and the berg machine raped the franchise by the introduction of Aliens, Max Payne seems to do the same. Monsters that represent the floating into a sleep like state, aka death, didnt seem to stick. Ok yes it was a metaphor for taking drugs (chasing the dragon) but again just felt so removed and reeked of a lack of an idea to make it plausible. All in all I wanted to feel a part of the film, part of the action and feel the characters pain but the bond and the immersion i the film just simply never came.
Well after 7 weeks of therapy and the addage that something has to change I finally made a small change, though thats not without its problems The original role was for a PC engineer. Simple can do that standing on my head. The interview was bout that to start with and then progressed onto how tho grow the company increase exposure, what can I do to manage things and make them more money. Sheesh I wanted a role that I just go to, work switch off from all things Tech and make a bit of money on the side. Now, after being offered and taking the role, its going to be a lot bigger. However I really don,t want to do the work, I will give ideas and get people to execute but the donkey work of making ideas happen isn’t something I want to do myself. Others can do that and I will push things along. After all 5 hours a week doesn’t give me much time.
