Typical...
4 October 2018 | by baoboaSee all my reviews

Reminds me of the music industry and how govt. sponsored (thanks Obama!) big business America have capitalized on the exploitation of talent... only, instead of a billion dollar industry we're talking about 100's of billions annually and real musicians wont be earning any money after graduation. There wont be any movies about that simply because the HBO's of todays world are a big part of the problem, not the solution.

Lets face it, Americans don't care enough to do anything about it.. so long as they "get theirs" for free, all is golden. After all, why should talented individuals, those who spend every ounce of energy, every dime, every last minute of every day perfecting their craft all in the name of entertaining us, be rewarded with fair pay for their hard work?! GET A REAL JOB!!! Sheesh
