To all those who think we should do away with figure skating, rhythmic gymnastics, etc. because those sports require panels of judges, think again.

In a game of football (or soccer) and ice-hockey, you need referees. In badminton and tennis, you need umpires. In fact most sports require arbiters of sorts. How many times have you seen a match swing from one team/player to another because of a bad call (Maradona's Hand of God, anyone)?

You can easily do a fantastic movie without much dialogue or voiceovers. In fact, the best way to do dialogue and voice overs is to let a good actor improvise. Works better than having the screenwriter do it - who should be creating potentially amazing scenes.
