Cinema: Not Just Recession-Proof, Flat-Out Creatively Booming

Watchmen writer (and Butch Vig lookalike, and Solid Snake voicealike, and generally above-average screenwriter) David Hayter posts an open letter to Watchmen fans via a site with the prestigious domain name "Hardcore Nerdity" (I just retched a little bit):
"Is it Apocalypse Now? Is it Blade Runner? Is it Kubrick, or Starship Troopers? I don’t know yet...
...This is a note to the fanboys and fangirls. The true believers. Dedicated for life.
If the film made you think. Or argue with your friends. If it inspired a debate about the nature of man, or vigilante justice, or the horror of Nixon abolishing term limits. If you laughed at Bowie hanging with Adrian at Studio 54, or the Silhouette kissing that nurse.

Please go see the movie again next weekend."
Honestly? HONESTLY? I expected this sort of shit from TV, but what the fuck is this?? I mean, at least we can be happy that this is the most pathetic thing anyone would do this week to try and get an uncaring public to watch their movie, right?



Oh for honestly. If you can't coax a performance out of Gary Oldman for two minutes, why in God's name would I trust you to make me a 2-hour movie?

Oh, this is a GREAT time to like movies, for fucking positive.
