I was complaining to a friend recently about the sudden demise of good quality Hollywood pictures. The produce of recent times have left film lovers like myself relatively uninspired with the likes of I AM LEGEND and what have you.

Some how I found my bum in a cinema seat today desperately trying to stay awake during CHARLIE WILSON'S WAR.

Just like the other 'political' 'anti-war in the middle east' films, it was just OKAY.

Which leads to my question: When will film directors stop trying to be senators and create classic escapism motion pictures that will leave us warm and tingly inside?
Lets recreate 'When Harry Met Sally', 'The Graduate', 'Rain Man' - we need to be entertained - stop trying to speak for the masses. You can't change the world with props and costumes. Sorry George Clooney!
