Roger, Roger. What's your vector, Ebert
Although I do not always agree with Roger Ebert, especially when it comes to his opinion that video games could never be considered art, I just read a post I agree with concerning the reasons for slumping box office returns. The wife and I, after receiving very generous movie gift cards from her brother for Christmas, saw Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows this past week (review to come shortly :). I couldn't believe that ticket prices are up to $11 a piece. I long for the days when I was a teenager and a trip to the movies cost $4.25. Friends and I ventured to the cineplex much more frequently then I do now. Of course, I also recall many more sold out showings back in the day too. Maybe someone should introduce Hollywood to basic economics. I know, too much to ask for but here's hoping!
