WHY HAS A MOVIE NEVER BEEN FILMED IN THE PLANET PLUTO?

Are you trying to be funny? Thank goodness. Because I’ve seen too many Ingmar Bergman movies for me to like jokes. Then, you must be a dummy. Okay, here are some little cinema lessons for dummies… Pluto doesn’t meet the conditions to become a film set. In fact, it doesn’t meet the conditions to become nothing at all. I don’t think anyone with half a brain has ever considered shooting a movie on Pluto. Maybe some Hollywood producer under the influence of a powerful hallucinogen, but no-one else. Don’t be fooled by appearances: Just like movies set in past times don’t require a trip back in time, science fiction movies that apparently take place on other planets are actually shot in Hollywood. Because there is a thing called ‘set decoration’, you know? Set decoration is an important part of a movie. Except if you are Ingmar Bergman and practically restrict yourself to filming close-ups, a director needs a set that fits the theme of the film. For example, it’s convenient that in a pirate movie the spectators see water somewhere, preferably sea water. No pools: pirate movies filmed in pools take away credibility to the story.
