“What’s interesting about O’Donnell is that she heightens the contradictions inherent in right-wing women’s activism to an almost absurd degree. It’s not just that she’s an anti-gay activist with a lesbian sister. She’s also a family-values champion who is single, childless, and sharing a house with a man, Christian rock singer David Hust. She cut her teeth working for an organization that railed against government attempts to foster gender equality, and argued that wives should “graciously submit” to their husbands. Then she took a job at the Intercollegiate Studies Institute, and, feeling herself trapped in a culture that mandated female submission, sued under Title XII of the Civil Rights Act for $6.9 million.”—
Hollywood rediscovered 3D. Finally, they can force feed us all the REALLY terrible movies they were afraid to make before. Movies whose mediocrity even CGI would fail to mask. How thankful these terrible writers, directors and producers must be now. When before, they actually had to make a movie about people you actually gave a shit about. Now, that doesn’t matter in the least!
CGI was bad enough, it made terrible movies palatable to the minions. Now with its unholy marriage to 3D, big Hollywood will continue to make more and more meaningless movies, and add millions to the post production budget. Instead of paying a decent amount to a good writer and director to make a decent film.
There will never be a substitute for good story telling. Thankfully, with CGI and 3D, there is now a substitute for good film making.
