From Z-man, talking about conspiracy theorists:
“People don’t like simple answers. If they did, Hollywood thrillers would feature no plot, just stuff exploding in between sex scenes.”
Actually, that’s about as succinct a description of modern Hollywood thrillers as I’ve ever read. Unless of course Tom Cruise, Michael Bay or Marvel Comics are involved, in which case there’s no sex at all, just a series of witty one-liners between (and often during) the explosions. And Tom Clancy must be turbo-spinning in his grave after what Hollywood has done to Jack Ryan.
I’d talk more on the topic, but I’m busy re-reading historian Paul Johnson’s Modern Times, and that takes concentration.
