    It really didn't feel like that long ago that I was reading doom-and-gloom headlines about how movies were dying (often attributed to piracy) but it doesn't seem to be the case now. On a personal level, I never used to be that interested in seeing movies but in recent years I find it to be a particularly unique kind of escapism - focusing on a single screen with no other distractions is a pretty unique experience in my life right now. I like to think I'm contributing a tiny bit to these big numbers.

    But I wonder if these big numbers mean that studios are getting better and better at honing in on a formula that works, meaning that movie sceenplays that don't fit in this formula have a more difficult time getting made. I didn't like Jurassic World that much and I'm definitely not going to see Minions. (Of course, the hypocrite that I am - as I type this, I have two different groups of friends planning to go see Magic Mike XXL, and I'm going to see it with both.)

      It never has been the case. Avatar was one of the top pirated movies ever made,but they made money off that hand over fist. It's the formula that I can't stand. All the movies feel the same to me..Different actors, similar plots.
