Anyone else notice the absolute glut of 'horror/scary' movies.
Seriously it gets old. Once youve seen one (the grudge which sucked so bad it doesent deserve capitalisation), you then realise when watching trailers for all the others that they are all the same. Obvious? maybe, but it reinforces the notion in Joe Blow's mind there making him not want to see the same crap day in day out.
Im actually hoping that Hollywood will suffer from this enough that it will force them to give true talent a chance and try to make something different and intresting, case in point, Sarah Michelle Geller has been signed up to play Alice, in Alice in wonderland, and not the one based off the book, but the one based off the game...
If Hollywood actually makes a film that offends fans of the original by portraying the Alice world as something dark and twisted then ill be back on HW's side. All this pandering to the lowest common denominator is pissing me off. Make a film that challenges me on multiple levels and makes me say, "You know, this is an intresting view on the books version of events, making me go back to read it in a new light"
On an offtopic (but not by much) note, I watched Phantom of The Opera on sunday, on the way home my significant other was pissed, I mean she was fuming... why? Because she hated the fact that these obviously massivly talented individuals are up on stage singing and acting and getting paid crap. While 50 Cent and co. 'rap' (Used int he loosest sense of the word) about the same thing (They all do, every damn one of them raps abnout the samn damn thing, even most of the lyrycs from song (ug) to song (ug) are the same), while getting paid millions.
The fact that the lowest common denominator rakes in cash for having no talent is quite possibly a greater crime than pol pot (maybe).
Where are the rewards for those who have talent and bring true innovation to the table? there is none, to all the Phantom singers and MC Chris's of the world, you have my heartfelt sympathy and financial support, the rest of you, go away and die.

Diablo & Diablo 2 for the DS, it makes sense Blizzard!
