    Why? I just don't get it.

    I mean, is it that bad taste is king? Is it that people are stupid?
    I keep watching the French, German, English and other originals
    of Made in USA remakes and they are fine movies, with a good
    plot and decent acting.

    But then what happens? That some cash is pour into a production,
    some chic name is casted, the plot is twitched to eliminate the
    complicated or "indecent" parts, and F/X explosions and lots of
    dumb action is added, i.e. lots of cliché.

    And voilá! There you go: a stupid, flavorless movie for American
    audiences. Why do you people keep permitting the studios to
    insult you? Or is it that they're right and you're tasteless?!

    Geez...

    Many Americans only flock to mindless entertainment whether in movies, literature or music. Not all, mind you.

    Keep in mind, that as in all other things, the rest of the world will soon follow.

    You, the people of the U.S. with good taste, have a great
    responsibility in avoiding this phenomenon to spread.

    We're counting on you.

    "American audiences"?

    No, those movies are for the unwashed masses everywhere. I mean, a village in China renamed itself and Palestinians are dressing up like smurfs because of the movie Avatar!

    Is it that people are stupid?

    Yes.

    Most of the popular movies these days are the cinematic equivalent of deep-fried twinkies.

    If only art cinema would be more popular amongst producers.

    Stuff like, I don't know, Jean-Claude Van Damme movies.

    The Muscles from Brussels should be, like, the president
    of Hollywood or sumthin'
