Bomb Hollywood means demanding increased quality in cinematic production.
It means leaving the craft to the craftsmen and not the businessmen. It means telling the businessmen to quit controlling what gets seen, how it gets made, who gets to make it. It means the capitalists will always be secondary to the artists. It means shutting down the parasites.
It means killing the gimmickry. It means bringing light back into the theaters. It means making movies mean something.
It means burning money before ever even thinking of handing it to George Lucas.
It means holding entrepreneurial filmmakers accountable for increasing budgets in production and spending enough money on one blockbuster to keep an impoverished nation alive for a decade.
It means burning away the icons, the actors and their cults of personality that at once alienate the masses while making them feel like they should aspire to superficiality and excess.
It means making artistic expression attainable for everyone, not just those with luck, looks, cash and connections.
It means piracy.
It means encouraging moviegoers to ask, “why?”
It means supporting big awesome explosions, crazy CGI, and eye-popping 3D for the sake of organic purpose—not for the sake of selling a product.
It means, make art. Make someone happy. Make someone think. Make someone know you and know themselves better than they ever could without art.
