jgarbuz ! Video games are an art form on themselves - they do employ artists and musicians,etc... besides engineers, but they are sooo repetitive and therefore predictable and therfore soo booring, after you played them a couple of times. My 12 yo twin boys are addicted to video games, and even they are starting to get bored - which is a very telling sign!Movies, are stories, and people have been listening to stories from the begining of times - whether oral, written, or visual. The human mind still likes stories its seems, and wil continue to like stories for the next fifty thousand years!
Movies are sooooooooooo last century! When are you going to get with the 21st century and start reviewing VIDEO GAMES instead??? The 19th century novel was replaced by the 20th century film industry. Now the 20th century film industry is rapidly being replaced by the 21st century videogame industry, but we see and hear almost no coverage of it. ANd yet this industry is not only making more money than the film industry today, but is employing artists, writers, musicians, actors, etc., and increasingly making good stories as well as action-packed gameplay. But you old pundits are so ignoing, and ignorant of this vast media that has suddenly arisen and you are hardly taking notice. Please. if you want a new topic, how about video games for a change?
Tribeca Film Festival was started by DeNiro after 9/11 to revive and protect his restaurant and real estate holdings. Period. Everyone knows that Leonard.
