2. Best Post Analysis (2 points) I feel that post is my best post because I think I did a good job in picking an interesting article and explaining how the article I picked is relevant and relatable to Week 7’s topic/lecture about US film industry, particularly Contemporary Hollywood.

I plan to add them in my revision post because they reinforce the fact Contemporary Hollywood is transforming into Global Hollywood. 3. Rewritten Best Posting (4 points) This article is relevant to this week 's topic because it reinforces and highlights the important fact that Hollywood is no longer an American or Western exclusive industry. In fact, the Hollywood of today is practically Global Hollywood.
