>I think this report was filed by Captain Obvious. I’ve been saying something similar about the music industry. CD sales are down because the music sucks. Movies sales are low because no one comes up with a decent movie anymore. It’s not that people want special effects and good looking actors. Those things are really just icing on the proverbial cake. People want a good story. They want to suspend their disbelief. They want to talk about it the next day with their friends and coworkers. They want to quote lines. They want to escape from reality for an hour or two.
It seems to me that the producers and studios in Hollywood need to take a creative writing class or two before they continue to put out anymore movies.
