So a multinational conglomerate can make a shitty movie, then buy up tons of tickets so it looks like a box office smash. Then their pocketed critics laud the film and pocketed award shows give it lots of accolades. ATTN Hollywood retards: You forgot to make money. The only people who saw your tripe were people you paid, and the only ones who liked it were people you bribed. America's movie industry is turning into an actual circlejerk, while the rest of the country (and the world) backs away in disgust.

The film, centered around a gay teenager working his way through the coming-out process, has received near-universal acclaim and has made over $20 million at the box office domestically.

I've not heard even one word about this movie. Judging from the description, I wouldn't watch it if it were playing on a hijacked airline flight, and the only other option was to watch my fellow passengers getting executed. Since we supposedly live in a free market society, if enough people agree with me on that sentiment, we shouldn't see as many of said type of movie getting released. But now we have corporations teaming up with bleeding heart idiots to buy these whole theaters out, or bus kids in like they did for Black Panther. They can claim this drek made 20 mil, but how much of that was from actual people wanting to see it?

Spot on analysis. Also, you have to bear in mind that there are SHEEPLE out there, who when they think a movie is doing well will just have to see it. They don't want to be the one who can't recite all the buzz words, trendy references, memes and lines from the movie with their hipster friends at the pub/bar etc. A sort of bandwagon effect.

The Disney shills on other boards got quite furious when I said Black Panther only did well from schools using tax dollars to buy out showings.

But it's true. The movie had serious artificial double-dipping going on, from kids going to see it with friends once, then schools taking them to see it on organized trips. And they're not making black people rich, it's white Jews. Look at the boards of the companies behind the film.

Hollywood "players" buy out theater's of queer film to boost illusion of box office success. This is what you call salting the earth. whittling their consumer base down to a small pocket of their approved SJW groups.

You couldn't pay me enough to see this filth.
