Hollywood box office numbers really plummeting like crazy… lets figure out why, shall we???

I know I’m a pretty big movie buff. I’ve watched movies for most of my entire life. I’ve watched movies in the theaters over the years, rented movies from local videos stores in the past, watched movies on TV and now that streaming is a big thing, I watch movies on Netflix as well.

For the past couple of years now, the movie industry have been plummeting in box office numbers like crazy. People are losing more and more interest in Hollywood lately…

Lets figure out why no one cares about the movies much anymore… could it be those SJW celebrities who likes to speak out on left-wing politics all the time? That could be a big factor.

Another factor could be is just that Hollywood no longer makes good films. Ya know, people are getting fed up with all these remakes/reboots and sequels. We’re also getting tired of all these action films loaded with CGI and shit. Maybe this will help give Hollywood the hint that we’re tired of it all. No doubt that popcorn films have dominated the film industry. The writing of films have been shit nowadays and the acting in films hasn’t been good either. Superhero films have also dominated the industry and maybe we’re getting tired of that too?

I love movies and still do but even I’m losing interest in Hollywood. I’ve been going to the movies less and less myself. It’s not because of celebs left-wing politics, it’s just that there isn’t anything good out anymore. I still go to the movies but only if there’s a movie I want to see. I saw “The Dark Tower” which was good. Next, I’m looking forward to “Stephen King’s IT”, “Star Wars 8”, “Justice League” and “SAW 8”.

Pretty much the main reason why I’ve been going to the movie theaters less and less is ’cause I’m no longer interested in newer films. I’m an old-school kind of guy so I prefer classic films more. I guess it’s one of those “it’s all about getting older” things. I’ve been watching a lot of old movies which is what I like.

It’s sad what Hollywood has come to be. I used to love going to the movies a lot but now I no longer care. I enjoy watching movies at home more lately.

People losing interest in Hollywood films? Box office numbers going down like crazy!!!

Well this is interesting. This article here talks about how Hollywood box office numbers going down. Memorial Day Box office weekend was at its worst. There’s a couple of table graphs that shows how Hollywood box office numbers has been going down over the last 20 years or so…

Why is it that people haven’t been going to the movies nowadays?

Is it because of movie stars ramming their liberal political opinions down our throats? That could be a big part of it! Another reason is that Hollywood just doesn’t make good movies anymore. Maybe it’s because we’re getting fed up with all of these remakes, reboots, sequels, action films, superhero films, etc. I can go on. Movies that are popcorn action flicks loaded with CGI is still dominating the movie industry and I think people are finally tired of that shit.

Hollywood really has gone downhill. I miss the days when Hollywood used to make good films. They used to concentrate on storytelling instead of trying to make big money. Hollywood quickly going down the shitter.

I still am a movie buff, though. It’s just that I prefer to watch older & classic films more. I like movies from the 30’s all the way up to the early 90’s. I love older action films. I love watching older black & white films too films like “Casablanca” is my favorite and I like to watch a lot of Marilyn Monroe & Audrey Hepburn films. I also love watching old Bruce Lee action films. Love old Clint Eastwood films and John Wayne movies. I’ve also been watching a lot of old Westerns and war films on Netflix too. If you’re fed up with Hollywood now, watch all the older stuff… that’s where all the real “Cinema” is at.

Report: Nicolas Cage is still a box office draw, “Knowing” tops box office weekend with a whopping 24.8 million!!!

Yet, another reason to give Nicolas Cage respect. Nicolas Cage haters out there needs to shut their mouths about him, because it’s a proven fact that he’s one of the most hardest working and successful actors in Hollywood more than anybody out there.

Cage’s “Knowing” hits no. 1 this weekend making a decent 24.8 million. Not bad. Not bad at all. I haven’t seen, “Knowing”, in theater, but I really want to see it. Looks like a great film.

Also, look at all these successful films that did well in the box office in Nic Cage’s career, check out box office mojo:

His biggest films that made the most money:

  1. National Treasure: Book of Secrets
  2. National Treasure
  3. Ghost Rider
  4. Gone In 60 Seconds
  5. Face/Off
  6. Con Air
  7. The Rock
  8. Moonstruck
  9. World Trade Center
  10. The FamilyMan

Those that keep knocking Nicolas Cage’s acting skills, it doesn’t matter if you think his acting is good or bad or if you wonder why he is still working. He is still working because it’s a proven fact that he’s still a box office draw.

I’m sure his remake of “Bad Lieutenant” will make very good bucks in the box office as well. Why should he quit if he is still making Hollywood a lot of money through his films? I think that proves he is doing something right. You can’t deny that Nic Cage has got some great films. He’s an interesting guy and unique.

Thanks to America for not supporting the Jonas Brothers movie…

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Finally! The tweens gets bombed in America with the Jonas Brothers concert movie only making 12.7  million while “Madea Goes to Jail” did surprisingly well in the box office.

The Jonas Brothers suck. A fake tweeny band manufactured and put together by Disney.  I’m sick of these fictional and fake acts like Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, etc. getting the fame. The music industry is so fake as shit these days. It’s sad. The music industry is dead. To me, it doesn’t exist anymore. I stopped obsessing with the music industry ever since Kurt Cobain killed himself.

Report: Liam Neeson’s “Taken” destroys box office Friday opening day…

As expected, Liam Neeson’s “Taken” is so far ahead in the box office opening, scoring a whopping 9.5 million. It’s no surprise. Liam Neeson is a legendary veteran actor who barely ever stars in leading roles. Most of his roles are supporting roles or small roles. I expect this film to make a little over 30 million tomorrow. The movie will be a hit. It’s a badass film. It’s great, check it out if you haven’t yet. You’ll have fun.
