Posted in: U.S. box office slumps to worst summer in years See in context

Alot of the big-budgeted Hollywood movies that are released in theaters are aweful. Not to mention that a matinee costs around $9.00 ($11.00 for regular screenings), $3.00 extra for 3D glasses & $8.00 extra to sit in one of those vibrating D-BOXes. Sometimes I wonder how many of the poor, starving children that could've been saved with the money Hollywood had wasted?
