There are a few things I'd like to see changed in the movies going forward. Some tired, old items I could really do without, in theaters and TV.
Let's retire these things and see if we can keep the creativity flowing:
- Do we really need to have closeups of people drooling in their sleep?
- Stop with the ridiculous shots of guys in Speedos. It's been done to death
- Bodily-function humor. That stopped being funny in about the 3rd grade. Enough already
- Vomit. We get the point without sharing the whole experience
I know that my particular demographic isn't the most attractive to Hollywood, but there are some attempts in Hollywood to make a film like "Shutter Island" worthwhile for adults. I hope they can get a trend going: Well thought-out, written stories that are great from beginning to end. These kinds of films make for some great viewing.
I love movies, and have always considered them among my favorite pastime. I once was an avid collector of pop music, with a ridiculous amount of albums, tapes and CD's in my possession. I cannot remember the last time I bought a CD. I mostly pick and choose from single tracks on iTunes because I can't recall one entire CD I'd be enticed to own. I don't want this to be the case with films.
