I watched Terminator 2. Seriously, this is what they were putting out at the dawn of the special effects age? It's one of the most sheerly entertaining things I've ever watched. Why can't Hollywood make movies like this anymore? Hell, why can't Cameron?

Sex, profanity and special effects sell. Well written plots -especially nuanced, well written plots- do not sell. Rather, they cause people to say "gee... that was boring." Hollywood's movies, though, are only a response to popular demand. Independent movies (and European movies, especially) are different. Want to understand what I'm saying? Watch Good Will Hunting, and compare it to... the last forgettable "feel good" movie that came out of Hollywood.

Terminator 2 and Good Will Hunting in the same thread? So much win.
