Hollywood

 

I read this, which is a bunch of whining from Hollywood execs about the dismal box office.

It's pretty simple, really.

You have your Occupy Wall Street crowd, which Hollywood aligns itself with, and those folks are more apt to stream a pirated movie from the Internet or try to get money from their parents (or some other personal philanthropist) to see the movie.

And then you have those of us with money, who've been dissed openly and repeatedly by those in Hollywood. We ought to support you with our patronage because why?

There are actors and actresses I simply won't see, I don't care if it's the performance of their life. Sean Penn tops that list, for his support of anti-freedom dictators who silence and murder their citizens. But there are others as well, and actually the list is getting longer because you can't pee on your audience continually. Sam Jackson and Morgan Freeman have certainly sucked my enthusiasm for their art with their uninformed comments.

I don't have any pity for Hollywood the abysmal box office, though I don't think they'll figure it out any time soon.
