I thor­oughly en­joyed The Cost of Spe­cial Ef­fects. I see a par­al­lel with what is go­ing on with Bol­ly­wood. The main­stream block­busters just seem to be get­ting big­ger, louder and present on ev­ery pos­si­ble fo­rum. The films seem to be about how many star-filled mo­ments can be crammed in. It’s just about go­ing big! At this point story or char­ac­ters don’t even seem rel­e­vant. Of course, there are many good films be­ing made as well, but I don’t un­der­stand why film­mak­ers with big bud­gets have an al­lergy to en­gag­ing nar­ra­tives.
