Have you seen “Kingsman: The Secret Service?”
I did! I loved it!!
They had this scene where they each had to train a dog, and the main character, Eggsy, picked a little pug named JB (short for Jack Bauer). He was so cute!
JB stole the show, but Samuel L. Jackson played a pretty pawtastic villain.
What can we writers learn from this movie?
- Never underestimate the power of cute animals to make a movie memorable.
- Nothing raises the stakes like a likable villain 10 steps ahead of the hero at all times.
- Like a good video game, this movie had layers of villains, including a pretty baller sub-boss, the lady with the razor legs. Meaningful acceleration of conflict builds momentum, and that makes for an exciting story.
That’s what I got from it at least! What do you think?
Power to the Paw!
