But what about all the un-told stories?
Almost everyones lives on this planet is amazing... things that you just can't come up with and write.
True, our movies suck:
it stars matt damon and ben stiller. its called "yawn"
the reason people need to start looking at the world around them and create something new.
If I had to make a movie (which I studied Documentary Film Making in college) I would shoot for a story about my grandfathers life... A rough punk kid who grew up in Watts in Los Angeles... later graduating from College after being the undefeated boxing champion and then drafted into the Korean War, surviving only by his instinct in "The Iron Triangle" and receiving 3 bronz stars... and coming home from the war, starting a family and becoming the captain of the Anaheim fire department (dodging death and saving lives)... A story about an American Hero.
You see, thats not a rehash, or something based on something else... its true life. In fact, I think some of the greatest movies todate are based on true stories.
Or even Star Wars for example... George Lucas took Religions, Fairytails, and Sci-Fi and mixed them up into a great adventure space epic!
Yes my friend, it can be done!
Let people watch originals for what they were, making remakes is the easy way out. Its time that Hollywood stood up to the plate.
