Maybe that's the point... [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd hazard a guess that all that frenetic stuff can obscure lots of plot holes, lack of character development, bad dialogue and dumbed-down stories.

Of course, I wouldn't want a return to 2001: a Space Odyssey-style ponderousness, either. A happy medium - that'd be nice!
