When it comes to the movies coming out this year, there are few genres that are bigger or more diverse than the genre of indie cinema.
But there are also plenty of titles that are still going strong in the genre.
We spoke with director James Gunn about how he approaches his movies, what’s his favorite indie movie, and his upcoming film, Taken 2.1.
What was the hardest thing to make for you when you were starting out?
I think it was the idea that you could make a movie that was just, you know, fun, that was funny, that felt really good.
The challenge is figuring out how to make a film that you don’t want to make fun, because that’s what the audience is.
They want to laugh and be sad, but at the same time they want to feel connected and be part of something that’s not just one big party, or one big action sequence, but one that’s just a bunch of little things that are all connected.
When you’re making a movie like that, you can have your fun moments and your silly moments, but it’s a movie about people and people don’t like to see it that way.
How do you make a story where people like it?
How do they want it to feel?
I think that’s really difficult.
But you also have to be really smart and be able to think in a way that you can get a story to make people feel.
And the idea of taking that approach is what made this one work for me.
I had a lot of fun.
So many of the conversations we had about this movie, there were times where I was just like, “Wow, that’s a really fun movie.”
Or, “That’s a funny movie.”
It was a combination of both.
And you also can’t just be a big guy.
You can’t go in and just tell a story and then, “Oh, it’s just this big, weird, funny thing.”
You have to have a story that is fun and you have to take a character and make them feel like a character.
So when I was making the movie, I had that in mind.
What made it work?
The thing I loved about the character that was in the film was that he was a kid that had an affinity for violence.
He was very much a kid in that respect, so he kind of needed to feel like he was the person that was capable of doing it.
And I wanted to find a way to really, really take him and put him in the situation that he wanted to be in.
He felt like he could be a hero and that he could take down a lot more people.
But he was also a child, so I wanted him to feel vulnerable.
So I really wanted him not to be a complete, all-powerful badass, but he also wasn’t in charge of all of this.
So that was kind of the driving force behind it.
Was that tough to work on, knowing that it was going to be something that you weren’t going to see in movies again?
I was really nervous.
I was so nervous about this, but I was also kind of excited.
I’ve been in that situation where I didn’t want people to see my movies again.
I’m kind of afraid of that, and it’s kind of scary, but the other thing I didn- I’m not a bad person, and I’m pretty open about it, so there was no way I was going on the Internet and seeing a movie I didn.t like and then saying, “I’m not going to watch it again.”
I think I’ve done it enough times that it’s not really that scary, because I don’t know if it will ever be that scary again.
But at the time I was like, If I’m going to make that movie, if I’m even going to do it again, I need to be able do it right.
It has to be enjoyable for me to see the movie and feel like I’m part of it.
So for that reason, I’m like, This is not the kind of movie that I’m comfortable making.
And that was something I was really careful about, because it’s like, It’s a lot like the movie I made the year before that was so fun, it was so funny, and so good, but there’s so many things that you had to do in the script, it just kind of felt like a movie for kids.
It’s kind, it feels a little bit like The Rock.
I don, you don, I mean, I did that movie.
I did a movie called the Rock that had this amazing, insane story and it was very popular and it ended up being the biggest hit in the world, and then it was just sort of kind of forgotten about.
So it was hard for me, because when I saw the film, I was a little disappointed
