  1. "Independant" as opposed to "tie-in", I suppose. :-/

  2. He's clearly forgotten about Pacific Rim.

    1. I was thinking about that great recent indie film "Guardians of the Galaxy", but you've probably never heard of it.

  3. "Independent" I don't think that word means what you think it means.

    1. I know he's using the word wrong, but I totally know what he means.

    2. Great 'Princess Bride' reference, by the way.

  4. I think he means "Independent" the same way Minecraft or Super Meat Boy is "Independent". Small budget, big payoff.

    1. I don't think either Fight Club or the first Matrix qualify as "small budget". I think what he means is "not part of a pre-existing franchise or based on a book or comic book or TV show or...".

    2. But "Fight Club" was based on a novel.

    3. Either he didn't know that - as I didn't - or I'm wrong then. There goes my record...
