There was a time, not long ago, when I thought I had written something with great potential. And while I am not a writer it was still better then most of the garbage that gets a multi million dollar budget these days.
As soon as I saw "disaster movie" I think I basically gave up on my writings ever being turned to film. If someone would give that horrendous hunk of garbage a budget, and a nationwide theatrical release, then it's impossible for me to even have the slightest bit of hope.
And this weekend I saw something just as gut wrenchingly awful as disaster movie. And this movie probably had a 200 million budget.
That movie was "transformers 2". A movie so gawd awful, so juvenile and stupid that noone even noticed the racist stereotypes, and the "we know you wanna bang megan fox" shots.
I think I can sum the whole movie up with ==> the annoying little dork dies and goes to robot heaven.
But what has sealed my loss of faith in my dream ever coming true was that at the end of this movie people have apparently been APPLAUDING IT.
I give up. Where's the nearest mcdonalds... maybe they're hriring a parking lot sweeper.
What kind of supreme being would condone such irony?

I agree with Dan. There are so many piles of crap that people call movies, that people like you not making your film is bull$h!t. If you give up then what is the future of true film making? I'm so sick of movies that are so mind numbingly awful that they're almost funny. Not to mention remakes & endless sequels & the same frigging formula in some genres. The entertainment industry needs to wake up & learn the meaning of the word originality & audiences need to quit feeding the system that insults their intelligence. So, please don't give up on your dream. We really need people like you to make good films, which I hope will pave the way of the future of cinema. Sorry about the rant but I'm happy that you're talking about this. It needs to be discussed.

If someone told me that my movie was too original, I probably tell that person that movies that have been called too original are the ones that have stood the test of time & actucaly made more money than the trendy ones. Either that or I'd tell the person that if no one ever took chances we would still think that the earth is flat. & If those two didn't work then I'd just tell the person to grow a set.
