It’s all about who you know, right? And who do those bigwig Hollywood types know? Other bigwig Hollywood types. If you need evidence, just check out the last two Best Picture winners, The Artist and Argo. Critics seem to love the movies that hold a mirror up to the industry.

Innovation is one of the quickest ways to bring the future to the present and completely overhaul an outdated system.

Then we can see how something as traditional as baseball changed completely in Moneyball. Continue reading
