Very interesting, well-written article. (Click on the highlighted link above if you want to read it.)
As I read about Hollywood sticking to what they consider guaranteed box-office draws, I reflected on the blog post I wrote a year ago: "Hints for watching movie re-makes." For a review of that post, go here.
Reading the article also gave me ideas for several topics I might address over the next few blog posts:
- My personal movie-going habits. (Reasons why I sometimes choose to watch movies at home rather than the theater -- one reason being foul language.)
- Why foul language bothers me.
- My thoughts on edited films (such as in-flight movies).
- My opinion of sequels.
- And, how the Hollywood outlook on original screenplays affects me... a new screenwriter.
Stay tuned for upcoming posts! ♩Dun dun dunnnnnn..... :)
