These days, every movie that comes out seems to generate a think piece. In the days before the internet, think pieces were mostly relegated to the biggest and best films. Really it’s only been in the last 10 years of prolific websites and social media that think pieces have expanded and thrived. I wish there had been websites and social media when I was a young movie fan. Think of all the think pieces I never got to write! Well, it’s not too late. If I’d been a professional writer in 1991, and there were website with unlimited space and social media to promote it, this is the think piece I would have written: “The Failure of ‘Hudson Hawk‘ Means We Can’t Have Nice Things.” So let’s take a De Lorean back to 1991 and see if we can change history and make Hudson Hawk a hit with this think piece!
