For those of you who missed it, or if you are particularly taken by it and want to see it again, here is the clip from the Carson Daly show about the Asylum:


Clearing the Air

Oct 07, 2010 in Headline, News, Other

In reading various websites and blogs recently I’ve noticed that there is a misperception out there that I don’t like the movies we make.

I don’t know… maybe it’s because I always describe them as crap…

The truth is, I really like our movies. But I also don’t have any illusions about they are. 

As I’ve mentioned elsewhere, my Netflix queue is filled with important works of cinema, festival favorites, and foreign masterpieces… that I’m never, ever, going to watch. Because, frankly, after a long week of smothering the life out of the artistic vision of the filmmakers who work for us, all I want to do is sit on my couch with an adult beverage and watch a movie that will be exactly what I expect it to be; something I don’t have to think too hard about.

And I don’t think I’m alone. Sometimes you just want to see the ridiculous destruction of famous landmarks, giant sea creatures devouring low flying aircraft, and lots of gratuitous nudity and violence. Sometimes getting exactly what you were expecting is a good thing. Like comfort food. And birthday sex.

That’s what I really think Asylum films are: Mindless escapism. And crap.

But I’d also like to think that occassionally we give our three fans something they aren’t expecting:

A pretty good time.
