A lot of loss this month. Time Warner is shedding its magazines. Variety is saying goodbye to its daily edition. And Yahoo is finally losing the jerk-off rule that allowed so many people to work from home in the first place. But the more things change, the more they stay the same. Like the media constantly bitching about Hollywood’s love affair with bad movies. Gimme a break. “Argo,” “Silver Linings Playbook,” “Zero Dark Thirty,” “Beasts Of The Southern Wild,” “Life Of Pi,” “Moonrise Kingdom,” “Rust & Bone,” “Amour,” “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower,” “Lincoln.” That enough? I can name 15 more solid films just from last year. That’s a lot of good cinema, folks. So stop complaining about mindless summer action tentpoles. Bad movies have always outnumbered good ones. We just forget about them. Or screaming that the end of the networks is at hand. Every time I turn »
