When Movie Screenwriters Get Lazy

Lord Howe Island is actually kind of famous over on this side of the planet”

Something kind of surreal goes on when you’re watching a movie with the likes of Donald Sutherland and Jamie Lee Curtis (plus other well known names) and they say something so stupid you just know they never even bothered to look it up to see if it was true. I blame the screenwriter and the director for these ones.

Last night on television I was watching the movie Virus. OK it was crap and I deserved what I got. So there they were on this ship with computer controlled robots self replicating and hunting humans down as a virus. Ha ha. Yes it was pretty sad for a movie by any standard. So anyway someone pipes up and says they need to crash this ship into Lord Howe Island which is just an abandoned rock in the middle of nowhere but it has a British Communications Base on it. I nearly fell off the chair with a guffaw.

Lord Howe Island is actually kind of famous over on this side of the planet. OK its got a fancy British name but hey its hardly abandoned. Pristine perhaps but there are a hell of a lot of footprints on it.

OK Hollywood that time I just had to point you out for a doofus.
