Hollywood Babble On & On #359: A Couple Of Quick Notes...


The makers of the animated box office turkey Delgo are considering suing the makers of Avatar because of some similarities between the films. The main similarities I see are the fact that multi-millions were spent and many years wasted by the makers of both films on what look like overly wrought cut-scenes from video games about saving the rain-forest.

I don't see the lawsuit going anywhere, too much can be written off on coincidence and the rather narrow mindset of Hollywood. Where everyone thinks alike, things tend to repeat themselves. First as tragedy, and then as farce.


Nikki Finke ranked a "toldja" when she said the NBC-U's Lifetime Channel will be merging with the A&E Networks to form a new partnership between NBC-U, Disney-ABC, and the Hearst Corporation.

So I guess now we can blame three corporations for A&E's slide in the quality department in my opinion.

Anyway, I'm predicting a new age of programming where reality show cameras follow washed up celebrities while plucky, yet scorned, women end up in some sort of formulaic thriller plot.
