According to the Motion Picture Association of America, the world box office sold 240 milion less tickets in 2005 than in 2004. The movie business blames piracy. Michael Moore says it’s cause movies suck.
According to the acclaimed if not controversial documentary filmmaker, “movies aren’t very good anymore.” Sell-outs at Moore’s Traverse City Film Festival showed that people still want to see good movies. There just aren’t any good movies to see.
I have to agree. Other than The Devil Wears Prada and The Da Vinci Code, most of the summer movies this year were just plain bad.
