the recent invention of the moving picture industry has lead me to wonder why we aren't over the initiial novelty value yet. as most modern movies are remakes designed to place as many products in as possible, has the initial storytelling art gone?
why do people like me sit inside on sunny days watching films that we've already seen? what are we getting out of it?
why, if every book is 'better than the movie', do we continue to make movies from books?
don't we have something better to do with our time?
