There is still a lot of talent in Hollywood, they are just never given a chance.
There needs to be some place where people can make entertaining movies......with a plot.....and talented actors.
I really liked Run Lola Run, and I’m betting that movie was made on the cheap.
Come to think of it, a lot of the movies I’ve really enjoyed were almost certainly not terribly expensive to make. I mean the movies that really left a mark based on characters and story.
It’s funny, coming from a guy that watched the original Star Wars 28 times in the theater, but Special effect are just the icing on the cake for me now. e.g. Serenity had some great special effects, but what made the movie great was the character development and the story. The story was true science fiction and the characters and their interaction was wonderful.

Hollywood has not figured out that CG and sex scenes cannot take the place of a good plot yet, obviously.,The old movies had good plots, character development, storylines, and honored family values. There’s a reason that many people keep watching the old reruns like I Love Lucy and I Dream of Jeannie (hey they never showed her belly button once during the whole show)
