My first thought was about "The Passion" as well. Willis' pro-military film will rake in hundreds of millions while Hollywood scratches its collective head. The media will portray it as dangerous, DUmmies will picket theaters, and the American people will flock to it.

The movie industry could end their slump immediately if they would tell those true stories that Americans are eager to hear. Instead, Hollywood gives us Syriana, Fahrenheit 911, and Jarhead. It's like they want to lose millions.

Why should they make any decent movies the heartland wants to see? Thay receive millions in taxpayer subsidies, as much or maybe more than the cotton industry (which is akin to Big Tobacco.)

As long as they are getting tax dollars, they will continue to spill forth crap.
