    Americans don't even watch movies, so who cares. It's an old medium that had its time and failed. Let's move on.

  • ramesh | August 12, 2013 6:55 PM

    He's right you know! with the wars in Iraq and afganistan coming to a close, the reason for why americans make movies and watch movies has ended. pentagon no longer wants to motivate its troops, and the troops are now unemployed white people trying to pick a fight in the local walmart parking lot. ...and you(hollywood and its "journalist" cheerleaders) have alienated all the brown people by making these movies/ pushing them.....so I think its time for hollywood to close down production facilities for about a year and introspect......
