Man of Steel is one of the latest editions of the Superman story. This 2013 movie is the beginning of the latest DC series for the Superman story and the larger DC Universe. Henry Cavill stars as Superman, with Amy Adams as Lois Lane.
At the time of writing, Halloween is just over a month away, so why not prepare by sampling some of these bone-chillingly terrifying selections? recommended by me, R. R. Molyneux, part time necromancer and full-time mouthpiece for the dreams of the Elder Gods…
…what was I saying? Passed out for a second there.
This weekend saw the opening of the 50 shades of Grey movie in the cinema with mixed reviews pouring onto the internet. Pretty much every person that I know went to see apart from me. I’ve read the books and considered seeing it because Jamie Dornan, a local lad, was starring in it. But I decided against it in the end because I refuse to give any of my hard earned money to EL James. A woman who has not only glamourised domestic abuse but dismisses those who challenge her sad individuals who can’t appreciate a good book.
I’m one of those people that likes to dream. I like to think about living the dream with wealth, health and happiness at my finger-tips. But sometimes I have nightmares. I don’t mean just the everyday type of drama which we all must face, sometimes when my head hits the pillow I have nightmares. My poor hubby-to-be has to endure nights of me kicking and screaming as I am locked in my own head, facing off to some inner demon. I know that I am dreaming which makes the terror worse sometimes. When morning finally dawns my poor hubby will always ask me what I was dreaming of, and every time he sits and listens. After my most recent screaming session he asked what had happened, and when I was done, all he could say was “That would be an epic movie!”
I suppose he is looking at it as the glass half full point of full, turning something horrible into a work of cinema magic. And he does have a point. I know most people want to turn their dreams into reality but why shouldn’t I consider turning my nightmares into horror movies? Who knows, my nightmares might be great stories which spawn a cult following and a multi-million pound pay check for me. This poor man has endured so many nights of me screaming, he might as well have a more comfortable life to endure some more.
So, the big question is, how does a normal person like me pitch a movie idea to Hollywood? I don’t really want to make the movie, I have no idea how a movie is made so all I want to do is sell the idea to people who can actually do something with it. Plus, it was nightmare, it’s hardly my creative baby. I have spent the last while looking online for some glimmer of how to pitch but it seems Hollywood doesn’t want to know if it’s from us normal people. Ok, I know they have probably opened the door to those outside the business from time to time and got a bunch of crazy half-assed ideas, but what if someone has an amazing idea, how do you get it to the right people?
I know I said I would only ask questions if I knew the answers, just to get everyone to think, but this has me in a pickle. I don’t have a clue. So if anyone knows, please tell me. I plan on eating cheese later so I will probably have another horror movie running through my head tonight. Hopefully one of my nightmares might make it to the big screen one of these days.
