Marvel screenwriter blasts Hollywood for mindless destruction in op-ed piece



There — someone with some clout finally said it, and in an industry bible, no less. Zack Stentz, successful screenwriter for movies like Thor and Top Gun 2 has published an opinion piece in The Hollywood Reporter taking the movie industry to task for spending most of its resources on movies in which the predictable main event is the CGI destruction of a major city. There's nothing new about blowing stuff up on film. But now that digital effects allow any well-resourced filmmaker to depict anything imaginable on screen, everyone seems to be imagining the same epic destruction of New York, London, or San Francisco. "The more destruction you see, the more hollow it feels," Stentz writes. Amen. Read the full text of the piece here.
