Hollywood Only Wants the Dough….They’re Not REALLY laughing at us

09aug24to31survey

It seems that many (36.4%) of you believe that Hollywood is there to make money, not to laugh at (18.2%) or with (9.1%) society. At the same time, another 36.4% of you thought it was other.

Personally, I feel that movies in the past 10 years have somehow been “dumbed down.”  Many movies (especially big budget pieces which hit the top three) these days are formulaic and seem to cater to a non-thinking crowd.   “Thinking movies” tend to either be semi-independent or foreign.  And these are the ones which get awards.  But who knows? 

Of course, there are people (myself included) who watch movies to “get away.”
