Sign of the Times

In today's New York Times, Sharon Waxman's article 'Summer Fading, Hollywood Sees Fizzle' noted that "With the last of the summer blockbusters fading from the multiplex, Hollywood's box office slump has hardened into a reality that is setting the movie industry on edge. Multiples theories for the decline abound: a failure of studio marketing, the rising price of gas, the lure of alternate entertainment, even the prevalence of commercials and pesky cell phones inside once-sacrosanct theaters. But many movie executives and industry experts are beginning to conclude that something more fundamental is at work: Too many Hollywood movies these days, they say, just are not good enough."

NO KIDDING! It is time to turn down the suck. There are filmmakers all over the world telling fantastic stories, but Hollywood has somehow cornered world entertainment and now we all have to suffer for it. It's nice to see that some LA execs are finally clueing in to this fact.
