How surprised would you be if I told you that the anti-Trump rally that passed for the Emmy Awards set a record for the lowest Emmy ratings ever?
Any more surprised than if I told you that a violent, repulsive movie that might be based on the Bible if you can make any sense out of it at all - starring an outspoken Trump hater who blamed the hurricanes on him (FYI, she claims that one was taken out of context) – tanked at the box office? In an already disastrous year for movie receipts, the studio is actually trying to blame the audience for the dismal failure of Darren Aronofsky’s “mother” with Jennifer Lawrence.
According to Paramount’s president of marketing and distribution, most moviegoers won’t pay to see a movie that’s “audacious and brave” as opposed to “safe.” But she generously added, “It’s okay if some people don’t like it.” Considering it’s one of only 12 films ever to earn the lowest-possible CinemaScore audience poll rating of “F,” it’s probably “safe” to say that just about nobody liked it.
Or maybe we just don’t like people whose job is to entertain us instead giving us nonstop leftwing political lectures (like preaching to us about CO2 emissions while standing on an air conditioned OUTDOOR Emmy red carpet) and telling us what a bunch of sexist, racist morons we are. If anybody in Hollywood really wanted to show how “brave” they were, they’d make a movie about an honest, decent, straight white male conservative Christian business owner from the South. But that will never happen. So I’d settle for a buddy comedy starring Tim Allen and James Woods.
