Norwegian dance company Panta Rei Danseteater, late last year, conducted a little experiment whereby three dance makers created two pieces with the same name based on the same idea, featuring three male dancers and two musicians, to see what the outcome was.

In perhaps the most ridiculous editorial ever written, Brian C. Anderson in the Los Angeles Times is under the impression that the best way to get people into see your new movie is to extol, what he describes as, right wing values.

Hollywood has been going through a bit of a slump lately with box office receipts down by 11% , results that have film execs. looking for a better way to make a dollar.

Mr Anderson points in the direction of Spider Man 2 and The Incredibles as examples of box office success based around conservative values.

In one particularly bizarre sentence he states; "A worried Violet, the teenage sister, suspecting (wrongly) that her middle-aged father might be having an affair, tells brother Dash, "Mom and Dad's lives could be in danger. Or worse — their marriage."

Marriage is of particular concern to conservatives. It must be because they seem to spend a lot of time and energy telling you should be married, should stay married and have children who behave similarly.

Anderson seems to be wholly unaware that, in the case of the Incredibles at least, the film is made by Pixar who's CEO is Steve Jobs of Apple Computer fame, probably the most left wing capitalist in the world and the line from the Incredibles was a joke! Also, Spider Man is about a particularly dense kid who has the abilities of a spider! It's entertaining, but profound it most certainly is not!

Hollywood needs to make less films like Aliens vs Predator and more like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, that's how you make money. Mr anderson could not be contacted to be ridiculed!
