Talking about the future of movies -- with an inevitable zinging of Michael Bay

All this dissing of The Island almost makes me want to go see it. And I think I'd be the only one in the theatre, so that'd be nice.

What this article gets right:

1) How the experience of going to the theatre is sometimes bigger than the movies themselves.

Exhibit A: The Parkway (, where you go for pizza, popcorn, and licker.

Exhibit B: The Grand Lake (, where you go to put a few bucks in the pocket of an unrelenting leftist.

Exhibit C: Naz (, where -- Bollywood, Chaat Cafe, hello?!?

What this article gets wrong:

1) Not one mention of Bollywood. People, catch up!
2) Maybe we should, at some point, mention screenwriters?

Hey, I saw the island and the theater was reasonably packed. Best part of the movie is Ewan "HOTTIE" McGregor and Scarlett "GIRL-CRUSH" Johansson
Everything else sucked. Ewan can just sit on a chair on an empty stage and I'd watch with bated breath.
