I wanted to see 'The Haunting In Connecticut', but all I can find is BAD reviews! Sad- I've known about the true-side of that story for a while and was hoping they'd make it into a movie that did the whole thing justice...I guess that wasn't the case here. It freaks me out when stuff like this happens. I think, "These companies have SO much money to invest in doing a movie well, but they STILL screw it up royally!". Is there NOBODY there to tell them to stop and let them know that they're making total crap?!
I've noticed this phenomenon in many areas of life tho-- like in big companies where you'd expect that they'd invest in amazing training but don't--and nobody really knows what's going on-they're just cowering in their office hoping to have someone else to blame when the mess they made because they themselves had little to no training is exposed. OR- When a book comes out through a major publisher and is horribly written. I feel there should be editors out there, people who can recognize something being done wrong--or people who can point out the OBVIOUS and instigate change. ....All of this freaks me out cuz it reminds me of things I've heard about in the government--where the different branches, i.e. FBI, CIA, can't share info and such---
...then I start to think about my own writing-What if it's edited by someone who has NO idea what they're doing?! My first book is a ghost story of sorts and -if by another chance-the thing is made into a movie, I could get stuck with a writer/director/producer like this one. It's just sad- My faith in the quality that is out there has been shaken- more than normal.
Are all these people surrounded by "Yes" people or enablers who are just trying not to get fired by not saying anything to dispute a big-wig?!
It's not that I've always thought the world was perfect and trustworthy, but I HAVE always thought that larger publishing/movie making/ANYTHING companies would have MORE people to help edit, MORE to see the bad parts, and be even deeper invested in putting out quality because they have the money to do so.
This sux - Let's all move into Wonka's Factory and forget our problems! :)
Oh! Here's a cute pic of Jasmine Macaroon from today--I put this bird beanie by her and she hugged him! She does that a lot with her toys-especially the pink Peep!
