PostSubject: Damaging cinema   Sun Jun 26, 2011 10:41 pm

Transformers 3 comes out soon and another Fast and Furious film has apparently been greenlit, yet films now considered to be cult classics often struggled to get made.

Is the support of unapologetic dullness like Transformers damaging the potential for new and interesting projects?

Check out this video from The Escapist Magazine's critic Movie Bob. A lot of what he says is nonsense but this one really hits the mark.

If you're a nerd who loves movies and games then I can't reccomend The Escapist forum enough, check it out.

The important question is isn't supporting the mindnumbling averageness of the "blockbuster" damaging good cinema? Or more importantly new cinema (in other words guys at our level), as why invest in something new when you can recycle the same old crap over and over again and people will line and let you spoon feed it to them despite how much food poisioning they always get (there's a tortured metaphor for you).
