    none of the above mentioned films were worth a trip to the theatre this weekend.
    anything out that’s worth seeing I already saw.
    hollywood is too lazy – reduxes or trilogies (series)=no real choices.

    Why have ticket sales been so friggin low the past few weeks? I mean, I know that the movies suck, but haven’t they for years? It hasn’t stopped people from going before. So seriously, are people starting to finally prioritize and realize that they don’t need to see every crappy film? Or what?

    @Truthteller: Hopefully.
    Independent films are great and I encourage everyone to go see them but at the same time, if Hollywood start making quality films, people might actually think those dollars they spend might actually be worth it…I’m sick of them catering to the lowest common denominator.
    Now your average movie goer can see the decline in quality.
    Most of it is cheap crap and I refuse to support it with my money and it looks like more and more people are finally waking up…
