Box Office Receipts Due to Shitty Movies

 Wow. Accountability.

After months of hand-wringing and doomsday forecasts about the permanent erosion of moviegoing, the lunchtime chatter at … industry haunts has turned decidedly inward. Now, four straight weekends of crowded theaters have forced moguls and creative executives to admit in public what they have spent months avoiding: They were clueless about what audiences wanted.

    Saw “The Brothers Grimm” last weekend. Wow. Two hours watching Heath Ledger is the best thing I could say about it.

    I hope now that the problem has been admitted they take the steps to fix it!

    I have to second that comment on Heath Ledger. Plan to catch him in Brokeback Mountain (top prize winner at the Venice International Film Festival) where he plays a gay cowboy. The movie is made from a great short story by Anne Proloux.

    Ackkk! I should know better than to rely on my memory after buying that memory improvement book then forgetting where I put it.
    NOT Anne Proloux but Annie Proulx, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Shipping News. Brokeback Mountain is in the collection Close Range: Wyoming Stories.
