So i went out to see ‘State of Play’ to see if I could see me. Indeed, you can see me, but only the same scenes you see me in the trailer. Anyway:
10 things I learned from watching ‘State of Play’ (spoilers)
- DC Cops respond to incidents in Crystal City, Virginia
- You can leave a hospital on the 3rd floor via elevator, run across the street to a building where you stashed your silence sniper rifle, and shoot the recovering patient all in the time it takes for a journalist to walk from the same elevator to the hospital room.
- There is plenty of convenient parking in Washington DC
- Reporters drink..ALL THE TIME
- You can learn a lot of useful information from sweaty guys named Vic if you agree to not one, but two dates
- Even after your best friend sleeps with your wife you can still continue to trust him, and should be astonished if he betrays you again.
- You can shove a woman during busy morning commute onto the path of a train and there will be zero witnesses to see you do it.
- If you plan on shoving a woman onto the path of a train, and there are only 3 blind spots in the cameras in the metro, your victim will automatically stand right in the sweet spot.
- The only purpose of parking garages in movies is for the psycho guy to stalk you. That and car chases.
- If a story is important enough then people should have newsprint on their fingers when they read it. No need to you know, post it online or anything. It can wait.
- Editors serve no purpose other than to let their reporters do whatever they want.
