I think that too much contemporary fiction, film and television writing lacks substance. Which may be why I really love old films because there was always a story and the characters were always very 3-dimensional. Today, it seems that the ‘concept’ trumps everything. The explosions, the weird monsters, supernatural abilities, etc. etc. I’ve always believed that if you start with a really compelling and interesting character the story follows naturally.
