The man's talking sense.

Yet another good New York Times commentary, from John Rockwell: In the Arts, Tech for Tech's Sake Can't Compete With Originality. A nice little essay chiding all these special-effects movies for not doing anything really original. Seriously, that's the entire essay. And he's right, of course... It makes me think that some of the best special effects I've seen lately were the little touches in Amelie when the characters in her bedroom came to life – special effects that are truly special, not like the rubber critters in Van Helsing or Hellboy.

Don't know where I'm going with this, particularly. Just making mental notes for myself, for someday.
