    Why can't the US come up with something original for a change?

    It's not about coming up with something it's about which movies get made. The movie industry is a different animal.

    I heard this.

    Pretty sure this is not a good thing.

    There are other, newer, or simply DIFFERENT properties to do things with. (Also the same for Amazon's announcement about a Lord of the Rings series. Just... no. Do something else.)

    We had Pacific Rim.

    ďBut I donít want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
    "Oh, you canít help that," said the Cat. "Weíre all mad here. Iím mad. Youíre mad."
    "How do you know Iím mad?" said Alice.
    "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldnít have come here.Ē

    Just like how they are dealing with their sexual harassment problem.

    Yup. It's a good shake-up. I've noticed horror icons haven't really been tagged in any of this. That's a good thing.

    Well, as it's been said, Horror artists don't repress things like everyone else does. It all comes out in our work. Blood, perversion, all of it spills out onto the page, and we get away with it because of the genre.

    Very true. Plus, we confront the darkness in the human soul out of empathy instead of condemnation. We know what it's like to be on the other end of things and our compassion makes all the difference.


    I just put on a pair of pants I haven't been able to wear in over a year. I'm happy.
