Ask not what your movie can do for you . . .
Far beyond the farthest reaches of modern technology lies a small, gray alien which most people have become accustomed to calling a "brain." While it has been theorized that most people use in excess of 9-10% of their entire brain capacity, it's extraordinary what these people come up with in that little bit of gray matter.
For example, a certain man whose name is lost to the sands of time one day had the miraculous idea to curve the edges of his hitherto octagonal traveling device naming his new creation "Wheel." From that point on he never went anywhere without his new "Wheel," eventually got fat from lack of exercise and died of heart failure from an overabundance of cholesterol.
Thus is the problem with intellegence. It constantly seeks to create ways of exercising itself more easily and efficiently and then is knocked upside the head by remaining percentage of the brain that isn't being used saying "Screw efficiency! I like the easy part!"
It then becomes remarkably easy to condemn the new advancement because of all the trouble it had seemingly caused when, really, it's the fault of the user for using the 90% of his brain rather than the 10%. This is especially true when it came down to the transfer of information in the form of moving pictures rather than text.
There are alot of people who simply have no clue what it takes to make a movie. These people have a bad habit of sitting in a theater and saying they could do quite a better job at this exploding effect or that digital computer screen effect or the other octagonal wheel when they really have no intention whatsoever to do anything about it. They seek not to feed, but to be fed.
And so I say, ask not what your movie can do for you, but what you can do for your movie. At the very least you could give hollywood some honest feedback. God knows honesty is quite a valuable comodity in that region of Earth.
