I've decided i want to someday direct a masterpiece romance movie set around the great depression. I feel most romance films suck lol. There's no one iconic film in romance i feel. I feel sex is overrated and many romance films are laughable. I want a movie that focuses on creative and elegant dialogue, moments that capture your being. I want to create a movie that will inspire people and move viewers to tears because you feel for the characters. It will focus on themes such as passion, love, loyalty, redemption, sorrow, joy, despair, hope, etc.

Those movies are made for a female audience. A man watches a chick-flick to show a woman that he is dating that he does not care about the movie if he can watch it with her
Woody Allen made a film that was like this, but different, a man could enjoy watching it. HE CALLED IT THE PURPLE ROSE OF CAIRO. A woman is watching a movie and a man who is in the movie walks through the screen and comes down into the audience to meet her. They have a little romance, but no sex so guys may tell you it was good, but they won't tell you it's great.

My advice is make your movie about a spy and a deaf woman who can read lips. You could get plenty of romance into that AND you could also get a few bad guys shot.

not true at all

Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

Yeah, but at least let a character be gay, it allows more room to work with while dictating the flow at the same time.

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

In essence, the world is fucked up and you can either ignore it, become cynical or bitter about it.

Me~
"BAILEY + SOLON = SAILEY
MY SHIP SAILEY MUST SAIL"
