    Read the True Story Before Hollywood Fucks Up the Movie Version

    Nowhere near Pain and Gain but a good read nonetheless. It is currently being developed as a movie by "Hustle & Flow" director Craig Brewer.

    Very few stories are depicted in film as to how they were written or actually played out in real life.

    Reason being is because screening writing only allows a film to be an average of 90 minutes.. And the reason for that is the movie house wants to show the film 6 to 8 times a day. Many truths are blurred out of proportion.

    Ask almost any author who has signed his writes away to their book which is then made into a movie. Most are enraged and only the money and writes sign off keep them from suing.

    But in a few cases the movie version is indeed superior.

    Also Hollywood for the most part fucking sucks and is full of lazy, uninspired writers and directors.

    Well I'd have to chuckle some about your statement there.

    Movies today are almost all special effects. Bombs going off and wild chases. Rewrites of former movies that did well also. Yes I'd attribute that to mostly poor writing skills that exist today. The art of telling a story really died in the 1960s as Hollywood gets less then 10 really good stories that tell an outstanding story a year.

    And do I have an answer for the problem. No what's hitting the screens today will die out in a few years. Then hopefully people will crave for more meaningful movies that have them gripping their fingernails into their seats as they watch.

    Actually I love telling a story myself and written a few comedy-dramas. Takes some time but most enjoyable and really not that hard to do if you know the guidelines.

    Ummmm, yeah except the 70s happened. Arguably one of the strongest storytelling decades in film history.
