We no longer have movie stars. Now we just have commercialized intellectual properties He says Hollywood now sucks, I believe it has always sucked. In the golden age, the artists were on slave contracts and tied to the studios and could be easily replaced. Studios made the stars since they owned the movie theatres These days, Studios own the in demand IPs eg Spiderman and Batman and can simply change the actors playing them. Actors have even less power now. Huge conglomerates like Disney can pressure movie theatres to show their movies. I dont know how it works in the US, I know they are smarter about it but it is very obvious in India especially with companies like Yash Raj films that force theatres/multiplexes to show their movies. I am sure people will show movies from Disney just not to get on their bad side since Disney movies are so big that you could get snubbed by Disney and not get allowed to show the next Avengers Blockbuster This line was great: "Movies are now made for 16 years old and China"
