As a film student this article couldn’t be more disheartening and at the same time motivating. Yes, the studios are pumping out crap like a honeywagon in springtime(farming reference) but at the same time the indie film world is gaining more and more momentum with every “Cedar Rapids” and “Cyrus”. I do love big budget films and sequels are always fun as long as the characters are bringing something new to the table. In order for the characters to bring something new to the table the actors have to bring something new to the table and therein lies the “secret” to a good sequel. Hopefully this summer’s massive crop will feature some of that “good acting” stuff. I’m calling it right now, Transformers: Dark Side Of The Moon will be the best one yet.
