While i don't think i daydream quite as much as you Brad i do tend to go into my own world at times. It's pretty well developed too.
Screw the rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the critics gave Trash Humpers a 58% rating and that movie bored me. Harmony Korine is such a hack.
I'm really glad to hear 'Walter Mitty' turned out to be a damn good film.... He's James Thurber's most well-known creation and deserves a decent movie treatment. (Man, that guy could write a turn-of-a-phrase that was a thing of sheer beauty!)
I was hesitant to see this, as I am also a huge fan of the story. I think that on the whole, the backlash is coming for us purists who were disappointed that only the first 15 minutes followed the original story. But, taken as a movie inspired by the story and left to follow its own fantasy, it's quite good. Sean Penn's appearance is very poignant, and Walter's realization was not over-inflated. It was pretty realistically portrayed.
So, on the whole, I do agree that even those of us who have lives that we never saw coming will always dream, and dream hard. That's the stuff that keeps most creative people going - our aqua vitae, if you will. We're not so much ADD as e are just overly creative and hopeful. At least, that's my take.
Anyway, if you want a good movie that speaks to taking a chance, see 'Walter Mitty'. If you want some very faithful adaptations of the original Thurber story, check out Chuck Jones' two Ralph Phillips cartoons that he did for Warner Brothers, "From A To ZZZ" and "Boyhood Daze". Seriously--they're masterful. :)
Thank You Brad, for all of your terrific work.
