The audience doesn’t need dialogue or character or psychological growth. The audience needs explosions, because they’re animals, and all they want is blood on the floor. The audience doesn’t need to be surprised or challenged with a new story. The audience wants the old story, because they’ve bought it ten times already, and at the end of the day, we just convinced these fucking yahoos to wait three years and pay us twenty dollars so we could tell them to come back in four years and pay us $40. Now you think they want personal growth? Give me a break. They’re barely even people.

I really do think this is the root of it. The filmmakers care more about showing off than they do the audience, but we sit there and pretend to enjoy it.

Respect the audience. Be selfless.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
