Both of those articles detail how "Hollywood", or large theatre releases, are hurting, as technological changes have modified the media landscape. Netflix, HBO, etc, have created alternatives to the traditional moviegoing experience.

This is a major issue for the industry. Excess SJWism is not.

I have predicted for years that Hollywood is going to die with the advent of Computer Generated Graphics.
They have progressed so much, so fast, that actors will no longer be needed.
With some of the game graphics that we have today, it is sometimes hard to tell the difference between real actors and computer images.

The next generation of Hollywood stars will be computer programmers and will never be seen on the red carpet.
The real stars will be international and not in Hollywood.

No, those are just a Hollywood is over take. But Hollywood wants to do well with that they do make... saying that, Star Wars for example has had a lot of negative feedback and poor turn out at recent movies. Enough to fire directors and hand episode 9 to Ron Howard. Many Star Wars fans want some episodes redone. Disney admits to the SJW agenda. Over-all, the SJW agenda is bringing attendance down. SJW made Solo a bomb. Oceans 8 was not that good, the feminist Ghostbusters was a bomb, Annihilation got Annihilated, etc. Movies that probably would have done a lot better if some director didn't focus on diversity swung all the way to the left.

Wrong. The last promo I saw for John Oliver was about WWE and Saudi Arabia. All one has to do is google these figures to see video promos that have nothing to do with Trump.

Stop bringing your "everyone is a communist" BS into every thread. It makes you look mentally challenged which I'm starting to think you might truly be.

Bay examined a corpus of messages tweeted at Rian Johnson between December 13th, 2017, and July 20th, 2018 — a total of 967 tweets — ran a sentiment analysis (using a tweet’s language to characterize it as positive, negative, or neutral) on them, segmented the results by account, and then analyzed the Twitter accounts themselves. “Overall,” Bay concludes, “50.9% of those tweeting negatively was likely politically motivated or not even human.” (Bay also found that most fans aren’t so dissatisfied with The Last Jedi that they’re going to boycott any new Star Wars films.)

Bay notes in his abstract that the negative tweets were probably sent to get media coverage of the fandom conflict, which, in his words, was meant to “further propagat[e] a narrative of widespread discord and dysfunction in American society.” Persuading voters of that, he notes, is a goal of both the alt-right and the Russian Federation.

Oh god, so many inaccuracies.

Episode 9 is directed by JJ Abrams not Ron Howard. Episode 8 meanwhile which had “a lot of negative feedback” is the top selling blu ray of 2018. Solo, which you claim to be a bomb made 400 million with the budget of 275 million. What part of Solo do you claim to be affected by “SJW”?

You? You have 2 rants in this thread that a plethora of comedy shows (and their promos) are all about Trump all the time. Always. If you just want to voice your incorrect opinion then go start an alt-right extremist blog.

Plus the guy who directed Ep 8 wasn't exactly fired as someone said, he's directing an entirely new Star Wars trilogy so obviously 8 did something right.

Solo was a flop. Made 200 million. Spent likely triple that .

As you can see. A few movies are still smashing the box office. However most are trending down.

If Hollywood did not have such a hate on for working class people. I might care more. As it is today. These clowns are the enemy. Pushing disgusting leftist agendas. Stirring dissent in youth.

What happened to positive role models. What happened to American heros. Time to wake up Hollywood. Make movies people want to see. Not movies about gay freaks. Not movies aboit transgendered mutants.

Another thing. How many sequels can the world handle. I can not remember ever seeing a good sequel. Godfather 2 maybe ?

Yes Hollywood is hurtin. Its a great thing.

I see you are still mad about liking Brokeback Mountain.....until someone told you that it was more than a good old western, about working class people.
