Great. If the "What's popular in your area" section on Netflix is any indication, we'll see Ow! My balls just in time for Oscar season and goodbye to anything with any kind of reading level above fourth grade.

Could they not figure that out by the ticket sales? That has always been an indicator of what the people want to see.

Unless they use this to decide which films to make it would seem to be of limited value.

I wish there was a way to prevent people from going to see crappy movies.

High ticket sales keeps encouraging Michael Bay to make god-awful stupid movies. Stupid people need to be prevented from wasting their time& money on him, and he needs to be made to stop.

If this means that Cameron Crowe will end up working as a barista at a Starbucks, I'm all for it.

Instead of trailers for movies already shot (or in production), they should make and show trailers for pitches, then have audiences vote on them.

I was thinking more to prevent any more Wayans brothers movies, but the concept is the same.

The problem is that there is little to no incentive for the theatre management to play anything other than the movies-du-jour, and only for as long as they draw. In essence, the problem is that they don't know who is walking in the door and what their interests are until they buy the ticket.

By advance purchasing tickets, this model allows theatregoers to coalesce around a single film, shown at a single time, to an audience that makes the management money. Think of it like groupon (although I suspect with groupon, meeting the deal threshold is more about marketing, and isn't the major business consideration). Everyone wins.

They still won't go. The untapped arthouse movie audience doesn't exist. People say they want Woody Allen and Jane Campion movies, but try getting them to get off the couch and go to the cinema and buy a ticket.

I used to like going to the movies. I don't mind the price, or the crowdedness, or anything like that.

What I DO mind, is that even the "fun, lighthearted" movies have gotten stupider and more cynical/dark.

I love movies--art-house, foreign, blockbuster, drama, whatever. But the quality of movies across the board has just gone in a direction I don't like. It's hard to explain. Everything's just farking mean lately. If I wanted to deal with that, the real world has enough of it. When I watch a movie, I want to escape. Even if the movie is depressing, it needs to have a bit of honor in it.

What I wish is that I could find a theater that played the classic movies. There are so many I haven't seen, and a lot of them were made to be seen on a big screen. Anyone know of a place like that around DC?

Meh..she's blue-balled movie goers, me in particular, too many times already. The Hollywood Publicity Machine starts a buzz about she's gonna be naked in "upcoming movie X" and then it never happens. The latest one was the huge build up to her supposed "nude scene" in "Wanderlust" but she chickened out at the last minute and made them take it out (some lame excuse about respecting her new BF's wishes..I dunno..). Word got out and the movie bombed big time. It was in theaters like one weekend and gone. It gets ridiculous and after a while you get sick of the big tease and no payoff.

The problem is too many movies today aren't being made to hold up for generations. You can only have so many fartknocker jokes without something else to back it up.

Revenge of the Nerds used bathroom humor, they didn't rely on it.
Porky's relied on horny teenagers doing dumb shiat, not just dick jokes.

What you think is stupid, others think is fun. All honestly, I liked the Transformers movies. I loved Speed Racer. I hate the majority of "Good movies" because they don't suit my taste in entertainment. I did pay to go see Jenifer's Body and loved it cause it was really easy and fun to riff.

God forbid people, no matter what intellectual level you are at, to enjoy what you like and let others enjoy what they like.

The only bad movies that I really honestly want Hollywood to stop making are political movies. I want to see a movie that will entertain me. Not get a God damn political message shoved down my throat! Do not care what political color you are.

How about movies in which actors save a community through ACTING!
Nothing like the old "put on a play or musical show"(which isn't good enough for a high school) that brings a community together in its newfound appreciation for life, love, and art.

Done right or wrong.. I bet it would be funny to watch. I would most likely be kicked out of the theater for laughing so hard at it.

Honestly I'd just like something of quality with Hudson Hawk. Bizarre, actually funny and entertaining, doesn't take itself too seriously in the least, not a huge giant wank fest for product placement and crap, action stars with not-terrible acting skills having a lot of fun.

That one Bruce Willis did a while back (cop buddy movie with Tracey Morgan?) was pretty close. No, it wasn't a damned oscar winner, but it was entertaining, and that's really all I want.

Take it a step further; after watching a trailer, have the audience fill out surveys imagining what they see happening in the movie and write it into the actual script.

They go way way back. They're currently doing a silent era retrospective, even saw A Trip to the Moon by George Melies and a neat documentary about the restoration last weekend there. My second date with my last boyfriend was seeing Fast Times at Ridgemont High during their 80's film festival. They're also about to start a series viewing a bunch of Jack Nicholson movies and have a terrific documentary festival every year (Silver Docs coming this June).
