Movie Industry Problems: Not My Fault
from the the-blame-game dept
We’ve had plenty of stories this year about problems with the movie business, and we’ve made it clear that we believe the problem is with the deteriorating overall experience (which includes movie quality, price, theater comfort, theater noise, advertising etc.) combined with many other options for entertainment dollars and time, but it’s amusing to watch the industry point fingers as news comes out that the box office take is down for the third year in a row. While many of the points do have some truth (though, not quite sure about the person who blames the fact that movies portray one political view more than others as the problem), what’s funny is that all of the blame statements point to someone else as the cause of the problem. No one wants to change what they do — and insist everything’s dandy if everyone else changes.
