Hugh "diddle my clit" Jackman speaked with forked tounge.
Well on one hand I think well yeah.... IF they do a decent product that is worthy of patronage, so be it.
But on the other hand - they are selling a lie.
According to the biblically brainwashed - it's demonic; which is always good for a laugh.
But the more relevant points are that there is a whole heap of really unhealthy marketing spin going along with the product.
Coke doesn't add life - it rots your teeth and gives you diabetes.
Kids are groomed to be neurotic little "me too" consumers - because they have the latest and greatest "In Thing" - so everyone else has to be like them and have the paraphenalia too.
Then you have all the in-movie product placements...
And the list goes on and on and on - all the spin, the hype and marketing.
And when it ever comes on TV., it will be milked for all it's worth - by rudely interrupting the add show with little movie breaks.
And when it gets to the DVD shop - it will be region encoded, to stop me from buying it on DVD in the USA at 1/2 the price it comes out in Australia.
As for his whining about internet piracy - that is a scam too; the figures are rigged by the movie studios.
I also figure that with all the downloaders - chances are they wouldn't have gone to see it at the cinemas in the first place..... so where's the loss?
So while Hugh "diddle my clit" Jackman's heart bleeds about the consumers being as justifiably unethical as the movie studios - I say, "I don't have much time for him and his industries crap".
