All the Present Day Movie Crapola in One Stunning Trailer

Now what will I do with the 11 bucks burning a hole in my pocket?

You know, I've made it a point for years now to not waste money going to movies unless I know it's going to be stupid and I know that the movie itself knows it's going to be stupid (think Sherlock Holmes as a recent example). Thus, the movie and I are sure to get along - I don't find myself disappointed by the movie's failure to assume intelligence on my part, and the movie can go home after the gig knowing it delivered, at the very least, a colorful and loud 88 minutes of non-condescending entertainment. Naturally, I see very, very, very few movies. Maybe one new one, in a theater, a year.

The sad thing is that I still have to sell this stuff at my job at B&N. If I can memorize this trailor, however, it'll mean that I can talk about every "hot" movie we sell just by filling in the blanks.

I knew there was a good reason for clicking the button.

Needs more pointless explosions because large fireballs going off in a major city push the drama of the plot without bringing in all of those police forces that have nothing to do with the major characters or the society they live in.

And dinosaurs and/or demons (demonic dinosaurs? Yes!) It needs some of those.

Wait - was there the evil corporation/gov't agency? If not, get that in there.

And fireballs. From demonic dinosaurs. From Alpha Whatever. In league with corporations, and government agencies.

And make the heroine an elf. A conflicted elf.

Alpacas. Every great film needs an alpaca or two

People have been saying for a few years, "Just wait - soon movie studios will be pushed aside just like the antiquated mainstream media news." I thought it might happen in the field of animation, where someone with a computer could create his own film without the help of a studio. But seeing this, I'm beginning to think that Hollywood's eclipse might be coming sooner rather than later. Look at this thing! The lighting, the sets, the actors, camera and filmstock (or whatever it was they used) - it all looks really professional! I would absolutely buy these scenes as something out of a big-name Hollywood studio - they look that convincing. This doesn't look like some earnest amateurs with a video camera, filming in their living room. It's smooth and polished.

So maybe a revolution is coming here too. The newspaper business used to be something that required big money: a huge building, tons of paper, giant typesetting machines, huge unionized workforce. Suddenly that all became obsolete. Maybe the barnacle-encrusted movie business, which requires multi million dollar budgets for each film, putting it out of reach of anyone but a big organized studio, is similarly on its way out.

Dr. Mabuse:

One thing the studios had is their distribution network. But now that is becoming obsolete when a theater can import the movie off of a server and play it from a computer directly to the projector.

Kodachrome is now gone; can movie film be far behind?

You're all funny, but Mikey!! you, my friend . . . if I had the energy on this gray rainy Ohio I day - I really would be rolling on the floor laughing.

But I'll just reread your comment and continue smiling.

"And make the heroine an elf. A conflicted elf."

If that's not you're original concoction - don't tell me ;-)

On this gray rainy Michigan day I admit that 'conflicted elf' was a collaboration with me and beer.

Still - more fireballs, and maybe a vampire.

The idea behind theft is that someone are denying somebody else of a product had they not taken it. . Nobody is denied access to music when others share it among themselves, nor is the artist or their label paying for bandwidth or a distribution medium (CD) to? get it to them. . The underlying assumption is that the person downloading the music for free would have otherwise bought the music if they could not download it, therefore how do you know if someone is denying compensation to the publisher.

I've observed that in the world today, video games include the latest rage with children of all ages. Occasionally it may be difficult to drag young kids away from the activities. If you want the very best of both worlds, there are plenty of educational activities for kids. Good post.

Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured I'd ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My website discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you're interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!

Thanks for your article. I would also love to say that the first thing you will need to carry out is verify if you really need fixing credit. To do that you must get your hands on a duplicate of your credit report. That should not be difficult, considering that the government mandates that you are allowed to acquire one free copy of your credit report yearly. You just have to consult the right persons. You can either look at website for your Federal Trade Commission or even contact one of the major credit agencies right away.
