Hollywood's Sacrificed Dead Things

Here's a quiz for you:

What's 26 million, 24.3 million, 19.2 million and 6.7 million?

If you answered 76.2 million, you're right ... but not for the purposes of this quiz. For this quiz, the answer is the weekend take of Bee Movie, American Gangster, Fred Claus ... and in a distant, distant fourth place, Lions for Lambs, the whacked but star-packed anti-war flick.

Hollywood has not yet realized that their fervid anti-war film making is not lions for lambs, but lambs for lions: movies that are mere sacrificed dead things, reflecting their tiny views in a tiny mirror for tiny audiences.
