The following article is entitled Plummeting 2005 Box Office Sparks Hollywood Crisis. For the last two years, box office receipts have gone down along with dwindling theatergoing. I'm sure there are a myriad of reasons; from DVDs being watched on home theater systems, to people being fed up with rude thoughtless moviegoers who won't shut the hell up during the movie. One factor that cannot be ignored is the dwindling quality and subject matter of the movies that are being released. The "gay cowboy movie" as people are calling Brokeback Mountain, is a prime reason for the loss of theater revenue. I don't care how good the acting or cinematography is, people don't want to see a couple of 1960s gay cowboys gettin' it on. Does that sound insensitive and behind the times? I sure hope so.
Good Day to You, Sir
