western films VS local films

i was captivated by one of the articles in today's newspaper.the title was

'kurangnya sokongan rakyat malaysia terhadap industri perfileman tanah air'..

it's discussing on how people nowadays tend to choose to watch Hollywood movies instead of local films..well,frankly i'm one of those people.gotta admit,i only watch local films if they are really highly recommended but i don't mind watching western films randomly.

i agree that western films sumtyms give bad influences,but i'm not ere to talk bout that.
why are western films more popular than local ones?the most important thing that i noticed is that they are never dull,ok maybe not all but most of other words,the film-makers dont waste their time on scenes that drag on n on.local films in general r so slow-moving that one is liable to fall asleep during their many monotonous scenes.western films only show whut is necessary n likely to hold the audience's the audience is kept at a pace that never allows dull moments to occur.

i'm not implying all local films are boring n dull.there r some very good ones indeed(like sepet,cinta,p.ramlee's,indon's,etc),but most tend to be very long-drawn,self-indulgent affairs that really r not entertaining at all.

in one of these dreadful films that i've seen,i remember a very dull scene in a living room(cant remember which movie),the camera was kept focused at a cup of coffee on da table for so long i was sure da coffee would have gone cold!!

most of the conversations are
painfully slow n predictable that the script-writer must've thought that the audience consists of morons.local films need to speed up their scenes to make them more interesting.

moreover,local film-makers have got to make efforts to make their films more
realistic.some scenes r so badly made that even a child can tell that they r fake.western film-makers spent a lot of money on special effects and stunts for the sake of realism.writing off a few cars to make a film is nothing to them.

cast in the film is very important.good actors and actresses can make a low-budget film a success.

our film-makers and the cast must keep improving their quality.i notice we are on our way to catch up wif the westerners.i can hardly wait!i promise i'll watch them. =)
