Imagine you could make any movie you wanted to. Imagine you could pluck someone from obscurity and make him or her the hottest star in Tinseltown. Imagine that you had control of an entire movie studio, competing with others to create a string of box office smashes. Imagine being able to use your judgement alone, deciding whether success lies with epic action pictures or lots of low budget, hammy 'B' movies.

Will the stars you've so lovingly groomed develop monstrous egos - refusing to accept that they are now too old to play the romantic leads that made them famous? You can help, but there are only so many times you can send them to fat farms and plastic surgeons.

Will you watch your movies being shot or do you want to direct the action yourself? Will you decide to innovate and introduce the talkies, color or digital sound before any of your rivals? Or will you let the other studios make the investments, leaving you to jump on the bandwagon if the new technology becomes popular?

Many of the things you've ever read or heard about Hollywood are right here in The Movies - from stars having affairs and hitting the bottle to teams of genius filmmakers creating the box office hit of the year.

Movie mogul, talent spotter or film director. You can be one or you can be all three. That's the magic of The Movies. - Lionhead Studios

It would be good if someone indie or other band can make a second movies game with better graphics and more ideas and possibilities.

I also make movies on Youtube for The Movies, account: davxx27, studio name: KJ(O)B STUDIOS, or type UCeNSHNOW in the Youtube search, you'll find videos made by me. Btw, anyone know of any good mod websites for The Movies besides 8Eyedbaby and TheMovies 3D?

I have a problem with my Star Maker, it gives me this error message:
Runtime Error!
Program: (Where it is at)
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.
I do not get what they are saying.

Nevermind, found a complex way of "Fixing" it. I actually had two Star Makers on my computer, That was not the problem but the solution, so I changed the location from going to the broken one to the working one... now time to make movies!
