How soon we forget
How soon we forget , the only reason Hollywood came into existence was to avoid paying royalties to one Thomas Alva Edison and the maker of black and white film stock George Eastman Kodak back in New York State!
But hey, Hollywood has been pirating foreign film ideas and novels since the roaring twenties(Dracula , Sherlock Holmes and a rather large number of French Films in both innovative(eg Our man in Rio - Jean Paul Belmondo(1962)(Later James Bond Movies ripped a lot of ideas from that one) , Taxi(1998) and Classic category as well , and famous for not paying the French owners one centime in copyright royalties either! Or take the train scene from Dr Zhivago as it steams out of a railway tunnel , in a similar manner to one of the very earliest moving silent movies created)
But then again , anyone for new movies from Hollywood , such as Rambo XV , Shrek XXV , Jaws XXX or bad to the core Greco Roman Epics like Ben Hur X or Jerusalem AD70(oops , sorry I forgot they have already remade the very trashy "Alexander" and the equally sickening movie called "Troy" which makes the arthouse Italian Sword and Sandals comedy movies of the sixties using the ex Elizabeth Taylor "Cleopatra props" look first class in comparison) , that be the question?
Crap just ain't crap , unless it is made by the Hollywood mafiosi and pirate crapola ideas cash machine , for we aim to steal and crap on the audience at the same time! , and we will think of all the ways to continue to milk the customer of every last cent , for the next one hundred years!
Perhaps as the laconic intrepid French Film Makers would say , now we know we made a first class movie the Hollywood Pirates , have just made a large budget crap remake in American English , for a hundred times what it cost us , to film the same movie! , now we know why they can't afford to pay royalties to us for stealing our good ideas and concepts turning them into rubbish in the process and putting them on this loser and tax dodge write off! , becuase it is truly crap in any language!
