How are we supposed to be expected to shell out $15 a seat to watch a film in the theatre when Hollywood execs like Andy Hendrickson from Disney say things like this:
People say ‘It’s all about the story.’ When you’re making [blockbuster] films, bulls**t.
Using Alice in Wonderland as an example (made $1 billion), he said at an international conference: “The story isn’t very good, but visual spectacle brought people in droves. And Johnny Depp didn’t hurt.”
Seriously Andy Hendrickson, chief technical officer at Walt Disney Animation Studios? Seriously? There are more movies being made than ever before and yet the tickets sold hasn’t changed, and you want to make up the difference by recycling the same crap movies and you expect that to pull us away from our 60 inch, 3D, plasma flatscreens and 500 channels and our Netflix and Hulu and streaming video and movies distributed on BitTorrent and give you money for that? I’ll stick to waiting until they show up on Netflix streaming, thanks.
