    For the same reason all the girls are going to be lean, lithe and busty with fabulous asses and pretty faces. Sex sells, even in the context of cannon fodder.

    Edited to add that I didn't see Apronikoff more or less just make the same point.

    HIGH FIVE!

    I, for one, would like to see more "average" looking girls in films. Basically, because what constitutes a "hot chick" these days I usually don't find attractive (there are, of course, exceptions). The super skinny, plastic, and dyed look doesn't really do it for me. That's just me, though. I honestly think horror and low budget films usually do a better job of casting attractive people who look like an actual person you'd encounter in life far better than major films do these days.

    That said, I think Scarlett Johansson is the epitome of gorgeous, as do most people, and I've even heard people (usually women) call HER fat. Weird world.

    Agreed. You tend to get more realistic looking castmembers in the low budget stuff. The bigger stars are almost too pretty.

    Thats why its not good to go see low-budget movies in the theater...You dont need that kind of mental damage in giant images in front of you as you are munching down on your popcorn!!..

    Haha, I see both sides. It's nice to look at 'beautiful people' up there on the big screen doing their thing, but at the same time, like Ehren says, I think it's less realistic, sometimes to the point where it can (though doesn't always) take me out of the movie.

    Well, I definitely agree with Ehren about not really digging the "plastic Hollywood clone factory" look, but...

    Maybe it's because I teach University classes and so am always surrounded by 18-22 year olds, but I just don't think anyone wants to watch a movie starring genuinely average-looking young people. lol

    Average looking does not equate to unattractive for me, I literally mean the average person. Average people are not supermodels. Most men are not in as good shape as portrayed in movies, and most women are not 6'3", 115 pounds with a tit job. Try walking around SoHo in NYC and see models up close....yeccccch.

    Then again, it comes down to personal preference. One of the reasons I literally buy Playboy only for the articles (seriously, does anyone buy Playboy as stroke material anymore?) is because what Hefner seems to find attractive these days is the bleached blonde, fake tit, fake tan look. That's "hot" these days, but I don't think it's realistic. I think most of us males would take a pre-boob job Rene Bond over 99% of Playboy models these days.

    But back on topic....TCM 3D looks like it's going to be a blast.
