[LanX]: (talking about minority chicks)
[LanX]: Hollywood is built on stereotypes which sell, this includes stereotypes about English, French, russians and ... Americans
[Your Mother]: I think to some degree, maybe a large one, the stereotypes are purely products OF Hollywood and not what would sell best.
[LanX]: well those products which sold best are replicated
[Your Mother]: They get almost everything wrong on every level. I think they create and restrict the market and fundamentally misunderstand audiences.
[Your Mother]: Consider how long, for example, superhero movies were kept at bay because they weren't commercially viable. They always were, just Hollywood couldn't see it or understand how to make one because there is no management talent in the town.
[LanX]: Erich von Strohheim built his career on beeing the most hated guy (The man you love to hate)
[Your Mother]: You see these amazing set, costumes, performances, etc, etc, etc all ruined by production and script decisions from the top down.
[LanX]: well ... the traget audiance is 15-25
[LanX]: spend one weekend in bed and TV showed me 3 remakes of 80s classics
