Dear Hollywood: Great Movies can Make Money, Too
December 14, 2004
For every Spider-Man 2, there are a dozen Catwomen. For every Alien, a dozen Alien vs. Predators. Hollywood knows how to produce, write, and direct great films; it's just that they so rarely bother to make the effort. Between the niche Indie and the brainless blandbuster are the great movies that thrill our senses and move our hearts. Better movies CAN make more money if we prove we want them. Hollywood, DON'T insult our intelligence, DON'T waste our time, DON'T sell us your snake oil any more. Raise the bar NOW!
