Tonight at “Breaking Dawn” I saw the trailers of several movies that have a end of the world or all of humanity is dead theme. As a dude I would expect these movies to excite me but for some reason they don’t. What is needed on the silver screen is more hope, more fun, more life. Most folks are dealing with serious situations and a good comedy be it romantic or situational. The idea in my mind for movies is to take you away and help you forget the everyday situations of life. No one needs to be reminded they are on the edge of catastrophe, we need to be reminded that life and love are what will win the day.

I have been watching Reality TV since the short run show called “Lost” which aired on NBC in the early 2000’s. Then we started watching “Survivor” and then “Big Brother”. When you form alliances its the goal to get the opposing alliance out of the game. Boston Rob of Survivor is king at this. Eventually the other team is obliterated and then it is no longer fun and games. You eventually have to eat your own. This is what happens every season of “Survivor” and “Big Brother”. Eating your own means turning on your own alliance until there is a winner, a sole survivor a victor. Sometimes it works where members of different alliances get to the endgame. This is a fact of life of reality TV.
