This just in, action movies no longer need to be pushed by plot or charecters!
Yes, thanks to the marvels of moder technology these two tools which had so often been used by hack filmakers, have been rendered obsolete and virtually no existent. The new tool modern screenwriters, directors, and producers will use to delight their audiences is testoterone. This revolutinary power source promises to push viewers into a world were several high explosive, fast paced, and delightfully cliched, special effect sequences are narrarated by flat, static, charecters who the audience doesn't give two hoots of a Great Horned Owl about. Add to that the innovations of the 70's, 80's, and 90's (like huge sweaty, topless, men letting loose with firearms, and the "I seem to have misplaced my self respect and dignity, along with the majority of my clothing" women that love them) and we've got something that may change movies forever. If it is true that art refelcts the collective mind, and direction of the society that forms it, then in the opinion of this writer, we have nowhere to go but up into the clear, cloudless, blue sky above.
