Movie Industry : Whaaa whaa whaaaaaa. that's nothing new.
The expensive flops include pedigreed films such as "Cinderella Man" and "Kingdom of Heaven," as well as what should have been action blockbusters: "XXX: State of the Union" and "Elektra."
Okay, let's see :
Cinderella man - Movie about a boxer in the 30s. Who fucking cares? Do a movie about Mike Tyson, and people might relate. Furthermore, after the debacle where Million Dollar Fucking Baby won 874 Oscars, people are banning boxing movies out of spite.
One ESPN columnist summed it up well, "The only boxing movie we haven't seen yet is about a nazi prison guard pretending he's disabled so he can box in the special olympics."
One day after he wrote that, a script was submitted in Hollywood for Franz Gunther Der Moron Boxer.
Kingdom of Heaven - Bit surprised that this didn't do well, since it looked pretty good. Then again, I didn't go see it either. Too much of a good thing I guess. See boxing movies.
Hint to Hollywood : try something new.
XXX: State of the Union - FOR FUCK'S SAKE, it's a movie with ICE FUCKING CUBE. WHY DO YOU THINK NOBODY WENT TO SEE IT?
Elektra - This has to be the author taking the piss at someone. I mean, nobody liked Daredevil, so obviously Hollywood execs thought "Well, let's spin off one character and make a movie about that! That'll get people into the theaters!"
Sigh, I swear, only the world's biggest fucking retards decide which movies get made in Hollywood.
And then they're hoping that Batman Begins is going to be the big blockbuster? It's a COMIC BOOK CHARACTER.
The real reason this season has sucked so far for the box offices is that there haven't been any good kids movies out so far. Parents take their kids to the movies, and the kids will happily want to go six times to see it.
No kids movies = sucky year in the box office.
End of story.
