Carrie's confused by Jason's claim that he doesn't like to use non-Christian things in his films like drugs and violence, given, you know, all the drugs and violence. She does give him the benefit of the doubt that there was an intended moral, but says it wasn't clear. Wes agrees, and calls out the shoddy sound as well, although he thinks it was an intended effect, whereas I thought it was just crappy production. Garry hated it but says it was nice filmmaking, and that's half right, which at least is good for him.
Zach: Sunshine Girl, about a girl who's scared of the dark. Well, that sounds okay, but if there's a van involved at any point, I'm crying foul. So this girl likes sunshine so much that she reaches out to the sky...and plucks out the sun. She has fun playing with it at first, but realizes that she's thrown the world into chaos, so she returns it to the sky. It's overblown as far as the music and cinematography go, and could also have been much shorter, but it's charmingly simple, and by far the best (really, the only) story so far, and even with the sun-grabbing, it's a departure from the effects-heavy film we last saw from him. Nice job, Zach!
Carrie echoes the point about its being simple, and also says she could have done without the saccharine music, but that she quite liked it. Wes gives kudos as well, although he does point out that the props were confusing and didn't convey the girl's fear of the dark. This Wes Craven isn't missing a trick, although I suppose it's only fair to note that he's probably more attentive to the things that make fear of the dark realistic than the layman. Garry babbles agreement of that last point and name-checks himself in regard to Beaches. At this rate, his next project is going to be a revival of The Gong Show. As a contestant.
Mateen: Lost. His films are about real people. Sure, okay. A real person is on a real phone, talking to a real recording. Then he's with a real girl, who apparently used to be his girlfriend, and saw him on TV or something, but she really disappeared because she really needed to "check in with me." Also, she's really married to someone else. It's a really trite-ass conversation. Why is she even there? Why did she really call him? Awful.
