wounds are almost entirely self-inflicted.
The first and most glaring problem is that their movies suck. They are geared toward the “elites” on the coasts, and are not interesting at all to most Americans.
Another issue is that the “stars” of today treat the normal people as the dreaded hoi-polloi and as a smell of poop smeared under their nose–they can’t wait to get back to their mansion and tell the Hispanic servant to wash it off. For them, the masses truly ARE revolting!
When was the last time you wanted to see a movie? I wanted to see the latest “Star Wars” flick, and I liked the “Captain America” series. But apart from those, what has really attracted YOU? “Fantastic Beasts” totally sucked. And what else have I seen at the movie theater to see in the last six months? I dunno. Can’t think of one off the top of my head. Maybe I’ll see a movie DVD for sale that I want in the Walmart bargain bin. For five bucks. Or I can always stream it on Netflix. There is just not much worth actually owning. Or seeing at all.
But that is to a large extent also because the “stars” are insufferable. The movies are bad and the “stars” lecture you and are themselves execrable. Add to that the many entertainment options available and it is no wonder they are tanking. I mean, do you personally know single person who saw the Emmy’s and talked about it? How about the Oscars? That one should be easy.
My answer: Neither.
If “stars” were smart they would just shut up and act. Why should I believe them over a dog-faced baboon? I mean, upon what grounds? Just shut up and act–no one cares what you think about monetary policy! We don’t pay you for that…
