Even before recent debacles the movie industry has been criticized quite a bit. It seems like the old days are gone: there is much less creativity now, as Hollywood turns out profitable but hardly stirring comic books and Transformer movies, and continues its love affair with safety and with sequels.
So I've got good news and bad news. The good news is that some of the industry's most powerful traditions are still being maintained. The bad news is that these are cowardice and the ability to attract every kind of idiocy.
