Hollywood Prescience

Today I was going over some of Lung Brother archives and came across this post from January, 2006 where we pitched some ideas/predictions about feasible Hollywood productions. Now four and a half years later it amazes me how many times we hit paydirt on the predictions.

I count four: Beowulf, One Million Years BC, The A-Team and the series V.


This can only mean one of two things.

1. Either Lung the Elder and I are creative geniuses and should be over in L.A. pitching our ideas like whores and raking in the cash hand over fist.

2. Or Hollywood studios are just a bunch stale production farms with all the creative enterprise of widget factories and whose sole function is to churn out the same cookie-cutter multiplex fodder that we the public gladly slurp up like drooling lobotomized cattle.

Mmm. I’m kinda torn between the two.

What do you reckon?
