Wait till you get to know us.  We are a sprited and arguementative bunch.  LOL

Kara, I agree with virtually everything you've stated.  However, when I mentioned True Lies along with the other two movies I meant that in terms of big budget movies in general.  I still stand by my statement that Cameron should've written a much better story around some of the great ideas that he came up.  After all, he only had a decade to do so!

 I've been with MANIA since its "Cinescape" days (never joined until recently) and I must say, you guys are pretty impressive here and DEFINITELY worth every read i must say - its quite the antidote to the co-workers I have to deal with on a "everyday" basis at work, they are truly haters and very condensending about the art of motion pictures, they would hate YOU guys because THEY are afraid of intelligent people :)

fuck yeah there are some damn smart people here, If I ever won the lottery, I'd gather everyone on here and start a production company, pay you all to roll out the ideas and see what kind of comment wars we could start with our movies/tv shows/comics/books!!!  Fan communities have come up with some pretty impressive work over the last few years, check out a fan based concert video of a NIN tour from a few years back, NIN released over 400gb's of video that they asked the fans to shoot and send in, they mixed an audio track to all of it and released it back to the fans to see what they could do with it.  The result came in any format you could imagine and was on par with any concert production that I've ever seen, simply amazing.  Like any good team, all you need is a room full of people that are similar enough to have the same goal but completely different enough to get the amount of ideas needed to make good art.  If I was an executive of a studio I'd be mining sites like this for fresh thinking.  

Keith, you've mentioned vids you've worked on, I've composed and recorded scores for local filmakers and I know that there are more than one or two talented writers here so what's stopping us?  Oh yeah, the couple million of capital........I'll work on that......c'mon lottery!

Wish, in addition to my movie review videos that I'm working on, I'll also be directing, producing and acting in an independent horror feature that I've written.  I'm also a screenwriter and have written 5 other scripts.  I'll let you know when I can get a few trailors put together.  I'm going to need the help of my fellow maniacs so I hope I can count on you guys to help me get as many views as possible and that would also include spreading the word to as many others as well.  It won't be anytime soon, however, because I'll need to get a decent lighting kit and a good quailty shotgun mic set.  I'll be coming into some money later this spring so once I get it I'll buy what I need and start shooting.  I was inspired by Oren Peli from Paranormal Activity fame.  I figured if that guy can make not only a great movie but also a commercially successful movie without ever having written a script for it not to mention never having made a movie before in his life, then I must have a chance!  I'm hoping that after I get a few trailors put together I'll put them on various sites and hopefully after getting a good number of views I'll have a big audience who'll want to see it on sites like youtube rentals where they'll hopefully offer me a partnership and also sites like netflix, amazon etc.

I agree with Wish. Some great comments here and smart people. That's 90% of the reason I come to Mania. To see what everyone here thinks about recent news about such and such. Ok maybe not 90%, but you get the point.

I like what Karas said about ST:TOS and the message it had, and that the new Star trek movie didn't have that message. It's a good point and I didn't look at it like that. I've always been more of a TNG fan over TOS, but not hating on TOS at all, just my preference. I feel like Abrams did do a good job of capturing my interest on the first scene of the new Star Trek movie though. With Chris Hemsworth as Jim's dad an that emotional scene where he saves the crew and sacrifices himself. To me that was a good solid emotional scene and I thought it was a good step for Abrams to start the movie like that.

Just for the record.  The Thing was not a reboot or remake.  It was a prequal to the 1980's Johns Carpenters "The Thing" remake.
