I?ve worked in the entertainment industry for almost 20 years. And in that time I?ve seen the bubble of self-importance in which A-List Hollywood resides. This has been only a minor personal annoyance for me. But with the recent uproar over Roman Polanski?s arrest, I can?t keep quiet. I know this isn?t really a local issue. But as the father of two daughters, I think it?s a human issue. We live in the entertainment capital of the world, many of us gainfully employed there, and this negatively affects all of us. Hollywood is already condemned for being morally depraved, and letting an admitted sex offender ignore his punishment does nothing to change that view.

Walt Disney Co. President Robert Iger said Wednesday that the company will scale back its investments in live-action films and instead focus on films released under the Disney name. The company has found it gets a better return on Disney-branded films and it is a better investment overall to allocate money to strengthen the Disney name, Iger said. "By investing in a Disney-branded film we have the ability to leverage or exploit across multiple businesses in the company, multiple platforms technologically and multiple markets internationally," Iger said.

Paul McCartney once wondered whether the world had had enough of silly love songs, but eventually concluded it wasn't so. The producers of the new film "Just Like Heaven" apparently have reached the same conclusion regarding silly cinematic love stories. "Just Like Heaven" is an old-fashioned and extremely sentimental love story starring two very likable actors, Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo. Witherspoon plays Elizabeth Masterson, a capable but overworked doctor finishing her residency at a San Francisco hospital.
