Fuck Hollywood

I finally got around to watching my netflix movies - Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, and Hop.

I should have known that if two chipmunk movies suck and devoid of plot the third one would be as well, but Theodore got dumber since the last movie.  I seriously wanted to kill that fatass dumbass, and for the first time ever I thought about commission violent art just to see it die.  I don't know why I do this to myself anymore, every CG movie with a well know character for the past six years, at least, has been shitastic; I don't know why I expect anything else.

Hop was what I remember it.  The CG is sharp because the characters are not an 80's remake, but that's all it has going for it really.  At least it doesn't insult the audience's intelligence like the above movie.

BUT...
I ordered both through Netfilx, and on neither could I access the special features because the rental versions don't have them.  Because of this BS, I am ready to quit.  I know this is not Netflix's fault, but I might just quit american movies all together for hollywood's actions.

The prices of watching a movie in theaters has skyrocketed, rentals have been stripped of special features, and hollywood is pumping out more watered down shit than a sponge with diarrhea, yet they are still making money... I guess advertising really does do the trick.

And they still wonder why people pirate movies.
A lot of recent Hollywood productions have gone to shit, it's like people don't give a crap about meaningful movies anymore.
I'm not a big movie fan, but between a movie made in the 80's or 90's and 00's, i'd definitely choose 80's / 90's.

It makes sense - making large movies costs a lot of money so Hollywood wants to minimize the risk - by mainly making sequels, reboots and copies of successful foreign movies. Add to that a plot that is not aimed toward artistic or literary quality, but easy digestability, and something that I sometimes percieve as an intentional dumbing down of the populace, but maybe I am over-interpreting things, and you get this waste of time, money and resources for all involved, including the customer.

I have to agree with Jeffy here, "and they still wonder why people pirate movies".  
I've have been saying this to myself for a few years now, and now I really don't have a problem saying it publicly - Fan and unpaid scripts are worth infinitely more than what's coming out of hollywood, and I wish that the worthy stories were made into something bigger.
