How The “movie” Movies Destoyed Cinema

Epic Movie, Date Movie, Disaster Movie. What do these movies have in common? They’re written and directed by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer and they all suck. It all started with Scary Movie, a funny and respectable script. Yes a part of it was written by these 2 directors, but a majority of it wasn’t and that’s why the film worked. Then came the release of “Date Movie” panned by pretty much everyone but somehow made double its budget back. Thats fair maybe people walked into it not knowing of its poor quality. So upon the release of “Epic Movie” I thought we would see numbers decline and not see another “movie” movie again. WHAT!? Epic Movie made back double its budget again despite all the extremely negative reviews it recieved from almost everyone. Finally when “Meet The Spartans” was released all the negative buzz surounding it was well known. Somehow it managed to make back its budget and a little extra. For some reason these movies are widely hated yet somehow make back a ton of money! Finally “Disaster Movie” was released and failed to even make back it’s budget. People had started to realize that these movies we’re not creative and just easy moneymakers exploiting the audience. These movies preyed on the casual movie goer and got them to watch 90 minutes of, and i use this term loosely, “Comedy”. This was until people realized they were being exploited and ripped off of their 12 dollars. The team of Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer are now releasing a new “film” entitled “Vampires Suck”. How witty…
