If you can capture their hearts the mind will follow.
That holds true for a lot of things in this world: musicians, actors, athletes; once you’ve gained a certain level of attention from the hearts of your audience you will be able to get your Moses on and drag them across the burning sands of Egypt. Don’t believe me? Even O.J Simpson still has fans that will buy whatever rendition of the truth he chooses to offer up whenever his bank account or, in his current condition, commissary account is running lower than he would like. If you give them enough to hook ‘em they’ll stay hooked. That’s not the topic of this here blog, just an opening thought.
What if you woke up tomorrow, kissed your signicant other good morning, took a piss, did your a.m workouts or whatever else it is you do, grabbed your car keys and headed out the door for the last time as a member of the 99% of the country who was not totally, utterly, stinking RICH? What if purchasing that lottery ticket with the change from your morning coffee was what you needed to change your life, and get you everything you want, $812 million after taxes. The lottery is at the highest payout its ever been, and by some miracle, twist of fate, or sheer dumb luck you have the sole winning ticket. Suddenly everything you want to do is possible, every bill you have is gone, every bill everybody in your family has is gone, every possible tangible dream you’ve ever dreamt has moved into the realm of “POSSIBLE”. Only one question remains: “what do you do first?”
I personally think that fans should have more control over the movies being remade nowadays. I understand that at the end of the day its up to the big movie companies and how they decide to spend their money, but come on? Aren’t the movies for us? The consumers? And if the movies are supposed to be for us why don’t we get a chance to vote whether or not they should be made. As connected as this world is by all platforms of social media why do some movies get remade ‘Total Recall’? ‘RoboCop’? but we don’t get cult classics like ‘Demolition Man’ or ‘Action Jackson’? Come on man. I’m saying. Maybe enough of us aren’t complaining loud enough. Shit they made 3 Expendable movies.
Ever find yourself asking the question, “what the hell is wrong with these people?” Really? Think of your typical day at work, no matter who you work with you are guaranteed a ‘WTF’ moment or two, that’s just human nature. But then again does a crazy person know that they are crazy? What that have to do with ‘the price of tea in China?’ (as my father would often say) Well, ever stop to wonder if you were the one people were looking at when the question of “what the hell is wrong with the person?” is asked. Think about it..
