There was this short time where people seemed to have figured out how to make a capeshit movie, but then everyone saw huge dollar signs and became Autismo, the Retarded Knight.

Keep waiting then. They have just found their formula for profit and it's not like anything you described. The good Spiderman movies came out when nobody thought you could even make a capeshit movie that isn't completely terrible. They were a fluke, a glitch in the matrix, and kicked off the current wave of shit. It's only getting more bland from here on out. Especially since they've found out that China will watch any dumb shit so they can skip the dumb western market for an even dumber one.
I hope Trump has something to say against this.

Marketing to the Chinese is not that lucrative for them. Firstly because China only allow about 60 foreign movies a year and your average studio makes a film for every week of the year. Secondly because the Chinese have fairly draconian and odd censorship policies. The reason Cisbusters wasn't screened there was because the Chinese have a thing about showing dead ancestors. Thirdly, it generally costs a film studio much more to get a film licensed and distributed in China than it would in any Western country.

So banking on the Chinese to prop up their failing business practices is a temporary solution at best.

They get by that rule by casting their movies full of Chinese actors, though, and half of Hollywood's output is now co-produced by Chinese companies. Hell, Legendary Pictures is Chinese owned now.

Not tits for anyone now, bros! It's Anita Sarkeesian's dream timeline!

I was wondering about Chinese involvements. You can't do shit there unless you allow them to steal your know-how do a joint-venture with one of their companies.

The big players in Hollywood all want as many of those 60 slots as possible. The cost of getting into China is easily offset because any old shit from the west will get loads and loads of ticket sales. All they have to be is kosher by Chinese law and flashy. Easy millions. There's more to gain in China than there's to lose anywhere else. It's an explosively growing market.

I wouldn't mind filling a few Chinese slots myself. *wink*

Seriously, I get their Communist and all that, but the Chinese seriously need to get a porn industry going. State-run of course, but imagine all that untapped ChiCom ass flooding the market.

JAV is a thing.
Didn't Iron Man Triple have exlusive DLC scenes for China? I never watched it.
The film industry needs to either die or just take a break. Take a rest and put out maybe two good flicks a year. That of course won't happen since faggots keep going to the theater to watch dogshit but what angers me the most about Hollywood isn't that they're wasting everyone's money, it's that they're wasting everyones time.

Dunno if I'm remembering this correctly, or if it was Hong Kong, but one of the biggest movies in China was a 3D porn

It was tits only, though, and you had to buy it from Thailand and eight other Asian countries to put together a complete uncensored version.

And damn, Japs are not ChiComs people.

And if my Grandmother had wheels she'd be a bicycle.

Nigger, he's talking about tasting the forbidden fruit and you suggest nip shit that the internet is flooded with.
