Quote Of The Day
“[Star Wars] smashed all box office records this past weekend. Hopefully, that news might open the eyes of the leaders of the sport … ‘The studios finally seem to be remembering, after years of over-reliance on visual effects, that moviegoers like a story,’ Jeanine Basinger, a film studies professor at Wesleyan University told the New York Times for a piece that ran this past Sunday. ‘It can be a story we are familiar with. It can be a serialized story. But give us, please, we’re begging you, a story of some kind.'”
“Get it, IAAF? Stories are what move and engage people, not simply performances, which are track & field’s versions of special effects. Performances are great, but they should come in the service of a larger narrative. That means good guys and bad guys, high stakes and cliff-hangers, not an endless series of athletic exhibitions by athletes running around in shoe company gear that never add up to anything.”
