#HOLLYWOODFAIL: Movie audiences shrink below post-Sept. 11 level. “Hollywood’s holidays are off to a dreadful start: Fewer people went to the movies the last two weekends than during the box-office hush that followed the Sept. 11 attacks 10 years ago.”

That’s because their movies stink. And yet the ticket prices keep going up. And the sound is often overhyped and unpleasant. But mostly, the movies just aren’t good.
