Reality TV World Message Board Forums
PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

""The only people who are resistant are the writers""
Do you know how to determine the IQ of a focus group? Same way you determine the IQ of a mob: take the intelligence quotient of the dumbest person in it and divide it by the number of people in the group --

-- squared.

Hollywood studios are fearful. Hollywood studios run scared. And Hollywood studios will throw money at anything which will let their Greenlight Guy sleep for an hour -- until the day he inevitably gets fired anyway.

William Goldman's words still apply: no one knows anything. This is just the newest form of lying about it.

Up to twenty thousand per script examination. I have to find an emergency sink now.

1. "RE: "The only people who are resistant are the writers""
If they had used this, we might not have ever had:

The Big Leboski.

Bottle Rocket.

A league of their own.

A River runs thru it.

Dances with wolves.

Alien.

Mad Max movies.

Conan the Barbarian (OK, we might not have missed this one)

Maybe even not Star Wars or Close Encounters, although I have no idea how that system would rate westerns, period pieces, Space operas, Science Fiction, etc.

Fortunately, Indie films probably won't be able to afford this.

Tell Ahnald to eat a vienna sausage.

(And that is what we mean when we say "Dam good writing! Dam good. The kind that could very well get turned into a blockbuster movie."

When you are Governor of California, maybe I'll respect you, Turkey.

Well, you know, kingfish just wants to kick half of California into the Pacific shelf and into his watery domain.

Sink or swim!

Dang, didn't think it through.
We bought ten cases of water. Does water float?


Things probably aren't looking too good for the canned soup. I don't even want to think about the Macaroni. *shudder*
I got something for you, fishy!

Run a few algorithms, data mining the scripts of the past five years' blockbuster movies, and see what pops out. Top five: Sex, violence, explosions, gunfire, and foul language, with a street (or building or parking garage) full of dead bodies.

Bogie wouldn't stand a chance.

Hey, that's not so bad. That's right up our alley.

Glad there wasn't no traveling pants or hippy stuff.

That's right up our alley.

We've already been warned, as long as it's not up the bowling alley.

A ten-pin strike ain't nothing compared to a flotilla of US warships and carrier craft striking an alien invasion. Gutter ball!

8. "music and visual art"

music and visual art can also be quantified, predicted, and generated by algorithm.

i heard of a study on npr in which the scientist determined the ideal painting in a number of countries. it was always a landscape, always featured blue...

humans are predictable, just like any other animal.

however, what is missing is the sub-culture... the smaller groups that will, as mentioned above, take The Big Lebowski and bring it to a whole new level.

cq

although Lebowski did sort of involve a heist
