“Why Does Every Movie Released These Days Feel Exactly The Same?”

It turns out there’s a reason why movies are starting to feel the same: “Summer movies are often described as formulaic. But what few people know is that there is actually a formula—one that lays out, on a page-by-page basis, exactly what should happen when in a screenplay. It’s as if a mad scientist has discovered a secret process for making a perfect, or at least perfectly conventional, summer blockbuster. The formula didn’t come from a mad scientist. Instead it came from a screenplay guidebook.” More at Slate.com. Also, there’s a reason for the teal and orange thing, too. (Thanks, James!)
