Once a bunch of movie people sat around wondering, “What will look good in 3D that hasn’t been done yet?”
Someone said “A volcano” and then the following round of question & answers ensued:
What is the most famous volcano?... Mount Vusuvius
What’s near Vesiuvius? Pompeii.
Which is a ..? Roman place..
and Romans had..? gladiators
and gladiators..? fought
But they also needed a..? villain to fuel their inner rage
who can be a….? evil Roman senator.
And then you need …? Romance
Add the pretty Roman girl,
She can’t fall in love with a smelly Barbarian so he needs..? a sensitive side
So the gladiator can talk to… horses
Throw in some aerial shots of Pompeii, create sets with some urns and statues and lots of people in togas eating voluptuos grapes from bowls then...
LET THE VOLCANO LOOSE!
Let it spew fire and ash to match the pollution at Diwali and we have a movie on our hands.
The fireworks are great but to spend 300 bucks to see them? I think that’s money gone up in smoke.
