So as I was browsing my usual website haunts I came across this article on ew.com that listed 10 ways to save the movies.  Below are their choices.

  1. For every jumbo-size, CGI-filled, action-adventure extravaganza a studio greenlights, it should commit to one modestly budgeted drama or comedy.  Agreed.
  2. Don’t remake good movies; remake bad ones.  Yes, Yes, Yea a thousand times!  Maybe Sunshine and I should come up with suggestions on this?
  3. Stop killing us with your popcorn.  I love popcorn but I agree.  If I had more options I probably would take them.
  4. Treat 3-D like the good silverware:  only bring it out for truly special occasions.  Agreed.
  5. Embrace the on-demand button.  I guess, but sometimes it can be thrilling.
  6. Admit you’re jealous of TV- and start hiring its best writers.  Agreed.
  7. Before a film gets a green light, someone involved with the project- the director, the star, the boom-mic operator- has to believe it will be a good movie.  Agreed!
  8. Can the commercials.  Agreed.  This sometimes makes me not want to see a movie.
  9. No more than four screenwriters per script (unless the fifth one is Aaron Sorkin).  Agreed.
  10. Create separate screenings for schmucks.  Heck Yes!  I don’t know how many times me and Sunshine had to get gangsta on some schmucks.  I mean we pay for entertainment not oto go crazy on folks who need a smack down.

So, what do you think of the list?  Agree, disagree, somewhat agree?  Check out their site  to see what EW’s thoughts were on the 10 ways to save.
