Pushing It Too Far

There is a line a big thick line made up of sheep and men's bare back's. On one side of the line is when a company thinks of a big idea and you stretch it out to much and ruin it. Then there is when you create another great thing, don't promote it or make something new and the item gets old an uncool. If this isn't clear to you, I understand it's not very clear with me either. Ok here is an example. Your in work, you work for Dreamworks pictures and you need a new movie idea. Your best friend, Joe Mama writes best-selling romance novels and he writes a story and gives it to you. You improve some of the details and you have a blockbuster hit. A month after the movie comes out, it stops making so much money and you spent eighty million dollars on it so you need to promote it more. Now if your sister, Ima Doofus were in charge of the movie she wouldn't promote it, and people would get tired of the idea and go watch grass die. But you're not Ima! So you decide to make a breakfast cereal of the movie, and Burger King starts making and selling toys of that movie, you make can can openers, notebooks,earring,hats, everything with the movie's title on it. All goes well, so you make a sequel, a year later it's a trilogy. On it's fifth movie you've moved down to the small screen, and your old viewers watch Twins or The Last Mimzy instead. Now if you go right on the line with the men you have a good movie. You know companies keep making new because we get tired of old, but I want new ideas because I get tired of the same movie, the same songs, the same swag, and the same face.

Who Thought?

Have you ever wondered who invented something? I am not talking about the obvious things like "The Telephone" or the "Computer" but the little things that you may not care about but you use almost every, single, day. For example take the Peanut Butter And Jelly sandwich, someone had to come up with the creation. Sure, you don't care but 3 to 5 times a week you take PB&J on to your 9 to 5 extravaganza at your office, and are grateful because that is the only thing you have to eat.
Now, when you think about it everybody has invented something in their lifetime. Unless, you are one of those people who is allergic to drawing/writing. Like, for example your at a business meeting listening to your boss jabber on, and on for six hours which could easily be explained in a three line email, or a one page letter. Anyways, you sit there listening to the guy and your slightly doodling on your post it note. When the guy finishes your finally, done and you created something nobody has ever done before. No drawing is ever the same, like a spider web.

Cheesy Movie Saturday

This is a new feature on my blog, called Cheesy Movie Saturday every Saturday, I will talk about a random topic for a while then introduce a new Cheesy Movie. Today's Cheesy Movie is, Bicentennial Man.
Bicentennial Man is a Two Hour and six minute movie, set in the future. The movie starts out in 2005 in a typical household, with a mother, a father, a tough jock girl, and a small innocent younger girl. The robot is different from all the other robots because it's gifted this robot has feelings. The robot's name is Andrew and Andrew loves his family particularly the youngest girl, and the father. Andrew longs to be a human and does a bunch of things to himself so that he looks human. The story goes, on and on until everyone in Andrew's family dies except for the youngest girl's granddaughter.

What makes this movie so Cheesy?
For one thing, although a good movie it is a family feel good movie. Family feel good movies are ALWAYS Cheesy. The movie is kind of weird it talks a lot about people dying, but it is funny. The ending is very Cheesy, the robot dies because he became human physically, and when he is about to become human legally, he dies.

1. Robin Williams is the main character, Andrew. You may recognize Robin Williams from; RV, Mrs.Doubtfire, August Rush, Jumani,and Patch Adams. To name a few.

2. Hallie Kate Eisenbirg as, the youngest girl best known as "Little Miss" or Amanda. Hallee was in the 2000 version of The Miracle Worker and was in The goodbye girl

3. Others Are:
Sam Neill (Yes, and Jurassic Park lll)
Bradley Whitford (The West Wing and Fathers And Sons)
Angela Landis (ER, and Best Friends)

That was the first Cheesy Movie. Next Saturday I will have another Cheesy Movie. (Please Note; I WILL post other times this week too keep checking!)
