WC, my guess is the studios water down most fantastic scripts into simple to grasp chunks for the execs who insist on "improvements." I like movies that are challenging, too, either psychologically or emotionally. It takes much more effort to build a movie with those in mind, which is why, I'd say, we don't see those very often.

I can still enjoy a big blockbuster film as much as an indie critics' darling as long as one factor is in place: I don't want to be able to figure out the plot and the ending ahead of time. Sometimes I wonder if the studios make the movies with a total lack of mystery so that people will feel smart when they watch them. I prefer a movie that makes me feel a little confused.


Joel Siegel once said, "Summer movies, some are not." I think if you want a clear distinction between what is or is not a popcorn movie, check out Ang Lee's take on the "Hulk", and compare it with Louis Leterrier's "The Incredible Hulk".


Gary, I'm clueless on that one!
