Nothing Worth Seeing at the Movies

There's a lot of talk about DIS today after John Carter, which cost $250m to make, flopped by only grossing $30m in its first weekend.  Carter continues a rough period for Hollywood in getting audiences to the theaters.  In 2011, domestic box office gross was down 3.7% and ticket sales were down 4.2%.  While there are a lot of arguments as to why this may be the case, quality has to be a primary one. Not a single movie in the top 10 this week had positive reviews at review aggregator rotten tomatoes.   If Hollywood wants people to go to the movies still, they should start making better movies.
