The Graduate: Part Two

by LesterG
What happens when a highly-respected writer/director runs completely out of ideas?

Oh yeah, that.

And here I was thinking that Tolkin was a sleeping giant...

Over the past 7-8 years, he's been toiling away (albeit making millions) as a script doctor on every Hollywood blockbuster to come down the pike. Sure, he hasn't had an original screenplay produced in nearly a decade - but I was convinced that the man who brought us early 90's triumphs like The Player, The New Age, Deep Cover and The Rapture was just laying low...biding his time. Sooner or later, he'd be back on the scene and slicing the jugular of the West Coast's elite with another razor-sharp satire.

Instead, we get a goddamned Player sequel. The man has come full circle, becoming exactly what he used to mock.
