Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant Tell You How to Make a Billion $$$ Movie

"Ben [Garant] came up with a pretty simple way to express [the basic movie formula]: You take a guy and put him up in a tree, then you throw rocks at him, and then you get him down from the tree. Die Hard, The Matrix, Casablanca: all of these movies have heroes pulled into a situation against their will, who then end up winning.
