“Life is trying things to see if they work.”
"The thing is most people are afraid to step out, to take a chance beyond their established identity." - Demi Moore.
You gotta love smart, attractive women. And, in the interest of full disclosure, I've got features I've written that I would love to get in front of someone to read. So when I say I could write better shit than the studios are puking back up on the big screen, I mean it. But, allow me to clarify one thing - I am NOT anti-sequel. Some are brilliant and needed. Hell, I geeked out on the teaser trailer for Star Wars Episode 8! But... at what point does Fast and Furious become Stuck in the Slow Lane and Bitter? I love the Rock. But do we need a San Andreas 2? Wait... lemme guess... big fuckin' earthquake strikes again? Yup, fade to black.
And... judging by some of the box office numbers, I'm not alone is my loathing of this trend of Production regurgitation. Just don't give me Jupiter Ascending as a new movie offering. Fuck that. Give me something I sit there and say, "Damn, that was impressive and fresh." And if you don't have anything handy, e-mail me. I've got a few that may do just that. - MO
