Movies from comedy to drama to your favorite Hollyweird Star.

RE: Hwood is the great marketing spin machine . . .

We are being served what the demographics want, not "art."

I am not sure I understand what you mean. Movies are for entertainment - the demographic want to be entertained. Which is why films like Raiders of the Lost Ark and Star Wars exist. They're entertainment. Since it's moving pictures it is also "art."

"Have you noticed the growing number of Asian and Arabic names in the credits?"

A lot of the grunt work is done overseas to save money - like many American companies that chose to move overseas - chose to fire American workers - chose to skirt pollution control laws and CHOSE to save money - they moved - the Arabic and Chinese countries didn't hold a gun to White American's heads to make them do that. So they can hire many people named Wong and Lee and Chan to work 16 hours a day to get the film complete.

Most 99%+ of all producers in Hollywood are Caucasians with millions - they COULD afford to pay Barry and Thomas and Don $25 an hour - these White Hollywood execs would have to give up one of their 8 palatial homes and maybe one of their fleet of 12 Bentley's and we can't have that - how could they possibly live on that? So they hire the Lee's, the Wong's and the Usman's at $25 a WEEK instead.

And then crazy people blame the Lee's, the Wong's and the Usman's trying to feed their family, for stealing American jobs. But the Hollywood producer - well he's fine because after all he is white and made Spider-man for the "Art" and not all to make a profit.
