No Minister

Always Scotch. Always drunk. Always critical. Always brilliant.

A few days ago I put up a post about the catastrophic collapse of TV viewership ratings for Hollywood’s annual, ritual orgasm of self celebration, The Oscars: Die Hollywood, Die.

Once again here are the figures for yet another industry that’s destroyed itself by going full Woke (and New Left).

But as an update on this I thought I would throw in this wonderful piece from The Critical Drinker, drunken Scottish movie critic par excellence. Watch, laugh, and then check out his reviews of individual movies.

My only difference of opinion with him is that I’d be quite happy for Hollywood to burn to the ground. Fortunately, they’re apparently determined to make the wishes of Right-Wingers like me come true.

And I say that as someone who loves the movies.

A free bag of Chocolate Fish for anybody in the comments who can identify even 50% of the movies whose clips he shows: WARNING: they’re fast.

    • Except that whole Lemming thing is a myth created by one of Hollywood’s stalwarts, Walt Disney.

  3. Looks like a major drop in interest, until you factor in the very short list of films released during the qualifying period.

    Here are the 2019 nominations for best picture.

    “Black Panther”
    “BlacKkKlansman”
    “Bohemian Rhapsody”
    “The Favourite”
    “Green Book”
    “Roma”
    “A Star Is Born”
    “Vice”

    There were no similar standout movies in 2020.

  4. Brilliant comments. Hope Hollywood listens (they won’t of course). Fortunately many of the clips were named. Terrific entertainment – my Saturday afternoons and, later, nights were almost exclusively spent at the pictures (should be The Pictures!) in the 40s and 50s.
