Now, Lucio Guerrero of the Chicago Sun Times is blaming The Great Multiplex Recession of 2005 on advances in home entertainment. He blames the woes of the Hollywood Elite on gamers, while the Hollywood Elite keeps themselves busy by blaming poor Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson.Read the article here. Halo is given a prime mention, having smashed every opening day sales record ever set by Hollywood. I would have to agree with Lucio on this one. Why watch Jamie Foxx take a paycheck in a Top Gun rip-off when I can sit in the comfort of my own home and steal an opponent’s flag back to the sunny beaches of Zanzibar? So, it is obvious that Hollywod has lost our business. A more interesting question is, what can Hollywood do to win you back? Anyone gonna see Doom in October? Or are we sick and tired of the way video game characters are sliced and diced to create star-vehicles for ham-fisted players like The Rock? Here is an idea: If Hollywood wants to win the gamer back into a $9.00 seat, a good first step would be to not f#$% up the Halo movie. How about it boys? Think you have the guts to deliver something with an R-rating?
