Connections

Gotta love the Internet and it's global potential for connecting us to each other. I am in awe of the scope of it. Thank goodness something has come along and cracked the wall, the invisible barrier that I think is responsible for separating good talented people from each other. I am talking about the cool potential of this social networking in getting good or great material into the right hands without the hazard of being filtered by one or two sets of Hollywood insiders who lets face it cannot make an original idea fly. They would not be able to recognize a hit because EVERYTHING so far out of Hollywood is retread material redone and barely disguised as new...it's scary and it's motivated by FEAR. Yes everyone out in L.A has a major monthly nut to maintain and times are very tough...so how dare they take risks? Meanwhile they have to if they want to maintain "there there".
Otherwise we are looking at the end of times for Hollywood as we have known it. From my perspective is that a bad thing? I think not. I am thinking that the last 5 movies to come out of tinsel town that really shook my world? I can't think of five. The films have kind of been just so so. The big block busters that are supposed to make history that have tanked although I did like Iron man and Star trek a lot. I am talking about this new crop of animated films that look very dodgy as in BAD. Someone thinks up these idea's and considers them good. How is it possible to keep this up? So far the best features films that really work are foreign. That is rather telling. Hey I am an aspiring writer-director, nothing would make me happier then being blockbuster girl. I am still hopeful. I see it in my dreams. Yes, I am waiting for the right team, the uber brilliant gang of financiers who say lets give the woman a shot! Call me crazy, CRAZY!

Honesyly, Rae, ten years ago, would you have wasted a minute's thought about taking a role in oneof the moves you now dismiss as retreards .... remember, they are retreads for us, not for the young'uns blinkin baount in confused lights of cinematic possibility ... though modern Hollywood will probably NOT serve them well ... Ultimately, you're cashing in on you celebrity status. Honest evaluation time, what are you doing with it?

Not sure what you mean...I am RDC so there it is. How can I undo it?

Rd/Lurgee, I'm not aware how she's cashing in. And personally, I'm happy she's doing the writing rather than giggling with Conan and flashing her gams. Har!

I think that one cannot judge somebody also easily, which it with fact that it is with the cinema, on TV or other does what it is today and it is that which is important is not this step!! it is that the evolution .....
she is right somebody of good
