    Technically, Minister of Writing would be under my Ministry, but that’s only because I’ve gone beyond the established job description of a MoCP by getting deeply involved in the projects.

    And you do realise most people on this site are children, don’t you?

    As Lord of the Lego said:

    That’s no excuse, though, Matt.

    I, a mere 13 year old, have written 3 full length Scripts, all of over current Hollywood Standard, a full set of full length novels (all 90% original, no Star Galaxy novels here about a bounty hunter with a Lightsaber), am in the process of writing ‘GOLD’ (a community project that actually looks quite promising) and most of the above was in fact written LONG before i was 13. And i can animate better than some people alot older than me (Non brickfilmers though) So, if i can do it, why cant everyone else?

    And we are TEENAGERS! The youngest brickfilmer i have seen is 9, which is not really a ‘young’ Child.

    1. You’re an individual and not everyone may not be up to your, “high,” standards.

    2. Just because you have written somethig doesn’t mean that it is any good.

    3. How can you possibly know that you can animate better then someone who is older then you and that doesn’t make brickfilms?

    4. You probably can write something better then current Hollywood standard, it’s not exactly that hard.

    Also, there are quite a few brickfilmers who are younger then you.

    Why does everyone say that? Why does everyone here think HollyWood is so terrible at writing stories? Or do you mean just HollyWood and not all the film makers?

    How many films look promising to you? If the answer is more than 5-10, this won’t go anywhere.

    Hollywood at the moment, is pretty poor.
    Why everyone asks.
    Well, for starters, theres the ridiculous, over the top, amount of CG, then, there is the stupid sequels, remakes, cheap story lines, poor adaptations of novels, and Cheesy acting. Its not exactly the glitz and Glamour any more.

    Does that answer your questions?

    Just to prove your point Felix, about four of the movies in there caught my interest, however little of it. One of them, I must admit, is The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything.

    Yes, I enjoy VeggieTales.

    It’s true, though, the majority of movies on the market today, Hollywood or otherwise, don’t have particularly good or memorable stories, especially as of late. Most movies now are simply produced to make a buck with no intent on leaving a memorable impact. This may be good or bad depending on which side you’re on, but I personally wouldn’t mind seeing a few more good movies coming out.
