Hong Kong hopefully they'll -- Smart like that speaking of Smart monsters university took the top spot at the box office for the second weekend in a row.
Beating White House found the heat and world -- V.
Kelly James Stewart Georgia thinks Kelly Jane all those dramatic world ending blockbusters when all the big time stars -- flopping.
And there are going to be -- -- do good cartoons.
You know I'm -- slightly disagree with you there -- and I I so rarely do on this subject.
But towards me yet it didn't go down it was only the fourth I think.
-- -- is weakened but it's already the ten best grossing film of the year.
What it's already made.
Now I think I think that's brilliant -- lover in you coming.
You losing your objectivity there's a little bit you know maybe I I need to be careful of that but.
I actually make an exception for animated kids' movies because those movies if there -- well -- like.
Like got mosques universities they always our number one because they can draw a lot more people you've got entire families going where.
Does stuff like world war -- the heat you've got you know.
I would argue that half of those are basically.
About either you know the world going to Callahan -- it.
The world ending an eleven and -- to aside I think that yeah monsters did very good this weekend did very well but.
Hollywood is still focusing on the end of the world and people are still going to see -- I mean -- and then and you go to movie theater and then there's not ten movies playing -- America in a world the world -- then.
You go ahead and watch the world and but I think this have to -- as sort of a clear thing here.
That these big name stars all year long and they really think like -- the last couple years have been coming up short.
And some other things I mean it to end of the world.
A lot of have really anti capital capitalism messages anti America messages it's like those things are working.
Well you know -- here's a perfect example of that is after earth.
Now that had Will Smith one of the inning here's a guy who can bring in billions in the box office worldwide.
That will be did not do well because it was a poorly made movie.
So in that case I think you're right.
An interesting you know the world you know some of us might argue the world -- slightly going Allen a hand basket but not the way Hollywood is being is portraying it.
You know for example.
You know I would say you know almost half of those movies on the top -- -- about terrorists -- -- taking over the world.
But are any of those terrorists the actual terrorists who are trying to take over the world or at least -- -- America and other western countries know.
That's not being portrayed the terrorists are always these -- pie in the sky make believe.
You know old old style terrorist that we're not even we -- nobody in the world these days it's just one guy deciding.
Not gonna take over the world so I can have a lot of money that's not the way terrorism works these days and that's not what Hollywood is showing and it's -- -- Hollywood.
You know sort of pay attention to this because it -- In other words at some point does -- -- -- let's put aside maybe the political agenda and and pay attention to the numbers -- doesn't really matter for them.
I feel like I think it's rare and I think it's actually you what you need is -- director writer with the vision now for example.
Last -- the Dark Knight rises you might say that was sort of about possibly.
The world coming to an end or at least Gotham city.
And that -- did actually have some interesting themes about the financial crisis capitalism.
That was actually relatively pro freedom.
But that was because it was Christopher Nolan they you know are really serious guy behind the found most of these films you're not.
Don't have somebody with that with a serious mind.
Mean that movie was co written with his brother partly based on a -- -- cities in the French revolution and most Hollywood blockbusters.
Probably the -- and pardon probably never read a Dickens novel.
Maybe George dickens' novel or or graphic novel -- -- that you -- before I let together and so essentially.
Maybe the idea then of good story may be good story writing and acting and that kind of stuff maybe that makes a return Hollywood because I gotta tell you what the sequels and -- -- -- -- -- part -- and a part twos and it out there rationality it seems to have faded except for a lot of these cartoon type.
-- It's frustrating I mean as someone who you know who reviews movies -- to see all these movies I mean you know what we have the summer hang over three.
Have -- -- -- how many Superman movies in the past.
Star Trek in the darkness I mean all of these movies it's it is like there's no creativity it's.
It's funny because there's no.
If they want to talk bad news there's no shortage of -- I mean I you know it early in the primary talked about our debt.
Unemployment rate is still awful and it's only.
It's only not as bad as it is because there's so many people -- just given up on looking for work I mean.
-- that make an interesting story you know Americans struggling to get behind this saying power they get out -- -- -- They don't want to focus on that because it would the answers are the ones that they don't want -- except.
Kelly Jane I know that you gave -- -- a little bit of a break because of Brad Pitt we've got to let you go now --
