Have Guillermo Del Torro direct! He's the only guy out there with a proven record in creating an imaginative world with substance. Not Jackson, not Nolan, but Del Torro!

The movie industry sold the fewest tickets since 1995 because their offerings were mostly horrible this past year. You can't expect to put out junk and sell movie tickets.

Here's a few hints for Hollywood if they want more people to go watch movies.

1. LOWER the price per ticket! In these times going out to a movie is a LUXURY! They have priced themselves out of the average market.
2. QUIT "rebooting" classic movies that were great! The reboots are NEVER great.
3. Be ORIGINAL again! There once was a time when movie Execs used to promote unique good ideas to get an edge on the competition, now they are just copying each other trying to take slices from each others smaller and smaller pies.

Thank you, George Lucas, for a memorable childhood experience with the Star Wars saga in the 70's and 80's. The Force was strong with you, once-opon-a-a-time. Enjoy your well deserved retirement.
