Oh NO, no Hollywood. What will we ever do without all of the words of wisdom brought to us by those highly talented actors that so love the U.S. of A. and we little people. (sarcasm) Personally, I would love to see the events pictured in the movie "2012" come to fruition when California falls into the ocean. This country would solve so many problems in one fail swoop. Yes, I know, some "good" people would parish, but a small price to pay for the removal of such a sociological blight on our nation. Then if New York could go the way depicted in "The Day After Tomorrow", then these two events would be a great start for the rebuilding of a once great nation.
Then all we would need is the revolution and the end of one individual highly responsible for the slow demise of America as depicted in the final moments of "The Sum of all Fears".
Ah, if it were only so.

Yes we can! Yes we can do without Hollywood and its' amoral movies filled with sex, violence and more. It has been years since I have gone to the movie theater. When the few remaining adults that still have jobs can no longer be seduced by movie trailers, then they are indeed in trouble. Because the adults have defected and the teens can't find work, who is left?

Thanks for writing still another great article!

Mr. Greenfield,

Please! We have enough problems educating our young people in proper grammar. In the first paragraph of your "Hollywood is Dead" article, in the next to last line you use the construct "...to try and hang on..."; the proper construct is "...to try to hang on..."
Yes, I know -- everyone seems to be using the former, but that doesn't make it correct.

As for the content of your article -- right on!

Mr. Greenfield:

It amazes me that you are able to write about so many topics with deep understanding and wisdom. It keeps us low info folks from totally sinking into the abyss of ignorance.
Stay safe, my friend.

I was sequestered and forced to watch part of the Oscars. From song and dance routines about "boobs" of starlets to unending sex jokes by computer-generated teddy bears, it was repugnant and disgusting.

I'm now convinced that Hollywood = gold-gilded guano

The Devil would have it no other way!

Hollywood is Dead

Posted by Daniel Greenfield on Feb 26, 2013 at 08:30 AM

The movie/television/comic book conglomerates are competing for younger audiences against video games and the internet

Hollywood has no problem being dumb, sleazy and violent. Those are all known and marketable qualities. What it does not look is appearing desperate. Desperation, however, is what the Oscars of this year and last year have in common. They stink of an industry desperately racing its own age and irrelevance reaching for gimmicks to try and hang on to a younger audience.
