I was on the set of the movie Traveling today, and something was bothering me. There are literally hundreds of people doing their best to make a movie that looks pretty lame. I realize this isn't exactly a new notion, or something that no one has figured out themselves already, but c'mon, they spent two hours setting up for a surprise-rain gag. Because it's Seattle. Get it.
I sometimes feel like when those sorts of things come to pass, film crews should have a right to overthrow the director by super-majority vote and make the film themselves without the stupid scenes. Thomas Jefferson-style.
