I knew I was going to get into trouble with "the big studios". I was already tired writing that message. The phrase "big studios" is obsolete and means nothing nowadays. It's just catchy and I didn't feel like thinking a different way to put it. But I still can't believe that the Stallone "Get Carter" comes close to, say, "The Big Lebowski" or
"Twilight" or "Jackie Brown"! Does it?
