Today's Movies

They say that the movie industry has lost it's way. It appears that recycled old TV shows, remakes of old movies, or just tired old and/or uninspired movie ideas have been more of what's the norm than not. I was joking the other day, after watching "The Reader", that it seemed a mix between "Shindler's List" and "The Graduate" (or as it's porn-movie equivalent will be called, "Shindler's Lust", which would be a title that the Jewish community may call blasphemous!). Also, I thought I wanted to see The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons, being that it had a lot of oscar buzz and had a screenplay written by Eric Roth, the same guy responsible for Forrest Gump... then I saw this: "The Curious Case of Forrest Gump", and now I find myself feeling unexcited about what would be a new experience in entertainment. Oh well.
