I suppose the title says it all,....
As most of you know, (or maybe it's just me) but very few Hollywood films as of late (or the last 20 years) have been worth looking at. On the other hand there are a number of excellent TV productions. Whether you like 'em or not:
All in the Family
Band of Brothers
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Hill Street Blues
The West Wing
to name a few,...
Curious,...when will Hollywood get a clue? Perhaps it's just me,... but I prefer a little character and plot development much more than an all out slam-bam action film. Whatever happened to:
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
In the Heat of the Night
Lawrence of Arabia
The Quiet Man
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Red Rock West
Twelve O'Clock High
Just a smattering of good films,..... but
Am I alone? Does the vast majority just want another: Chuck Norris, Steven Seagal, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, et al; mindnumbing action film???: :hissyfit:
Or will the quality of television finally surpase film making?
