A Little Light Entertainment

I find that films have evolved over time. If you watch films for 100 years ago the plot plods along. Fifty years ago techniques like flashbacks and changing point of view helped "liven" up the films. And the cutting and splicing continues to increase the pace in film plots. Are we heading toward a singularity? I offer this as evidence that we are on the threshhold of a singularity event...

The point at which the slicing and dicing come so fast and furious that we drop the plot and simply go for the "action" as attention spans shinks to that of a gnat.
