Well I didn't bother to read any of this conversation either. With its hook being "disappointment…please drive through" I just assumed it was going to be about unrequited furryism.
I see it's about Hollywood failing, or movies in general? i don't think it's fair to say movies are failing overall and blame it on Hollywood, Hollywood doesn't even make all the movies anymore and hasn't for some time. There's a huge slice of stuff made on computers that can be anywhere and the theaters seem to be doing just fine these days….in spite of any low ticket sales, that snack bar keeps em going just fine.
Besides, movie theaters only need to survive long enough to bring us the Pony movie then they can disappear. It will be ironic for all those who predict the Pony movie is going to flop if it's the biggest revenue generator over all the stupid action movies.
Ok enough vacuous and lame kidding around, I think the problem with movies is the offensively un-credible fake physics. I just get tired of impossible things being accepted as "good" and people come back to watch more and more of them. It's stupid.
I've only just started going to the movies myself much lately and fact is, there are some really good things out there still. Fresh, wonderful and exciting things. Like Dunkirk. It was just so wonderful in portraying the despair, the desperation, the genius and the drudgery. I just wonder if there is any accuracy to the aircraft numbers and performance….I'd like to know that part is accurate because it was a bit tear-jerking.
Now I return this thread to its originally presumably furry programming which i didn't read and I'm older than you, Manley so respect your elders.
