Not as many trips to the theatre

I am reading in several places that the Movie industry is in a slump. I don't know the numbers but I know haven't been to the theatre as often this year as I have in the last few because money is a little tighter.

However, I have seen a few movies and I really liked Batman Begins and Fantastic 4. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory wasn't bad but I think I prefer the old Gene Wilder version of it to the new one. (The sets are considerably better in the new version but the script, acting, and singing is better in the old one.) There were a few others I wanted to see but didn't because I spent a good chunk of the summer laid off (autoworker remember) and decided not to waste too much money on movies.

Hollywood however seems to be in a down year. Craig Titley, a columnist has an interesting study on why this slump is happening and what Hollywood needs to do to get out of it, and I think he is right. There have been movies showing how bad Europe was during the crusades and that's why Moslems hate Christians (ignoring the fact that the Crusades were a long overdue counter-offensive against Islamic aggression a few centuries earlier,) but very few movies that actually celebrate America and western culture.

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.
The design look great though! Hope you get the problem
fixed soon. Thanks

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I in finding this topic to be really one thing which I think I'd never understand. It seems too complex and extremely wide for me. I'm
looking forward for your next put up, I will try to
get the hold of it!

Currently it sounds like Drupal is the preferred blogging platform out there right now.
(from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?

Hey! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone4. I'm trying to find a theme or
plugin that might be able to correct this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.
Appreciate it!

Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on
the net the simplest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think
about worries that they just don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

Just because name implies, these ugg boots are from Australia, that are
crafted from twin-tier merino wool. When it comes to one of the most
styling infant, dress your kids in uggs.
Regardless products your first choice is, UGG Classic Short you can
find in the UGG boot.
