Hollywood Makes Psychopathic Movies?!

I’m not a fan of anything about Roseanne Barr. Not anything about her as a person, not anything she’s done in her ‘career.’ However, recently she posted something on her blog that I think is worth propagating through the blogosphere. So today I’m doing my part:

“. . . jon voight your evil spawn angelina jolie and her vacuous hubby brad pitt make about forty million dollars a year in violent psychopathic movies and give away three of it to starving children trying to look as if they give a crap about humanity as they spit out more dunces that will consume more than their fair share and wreck the earth even more. (just sayin').”

Roseanne World, August 15, 2008: “Jon Voight

I like this quote so much I’m going to number a few of the reasons:

  1. It’s interesting that even stupid Hollywood people have noticed that work seems to come to performers who understand the ‘kick-back’ principle of charity.

  2. It’s interesting that even stupid Hollywood people recognize the relatively big budget movies Jolie and Pitt crank out are worthless.

  3. It’s interesting that other people must think stuff similar to this, but the only person saying it publicly is a lunatic fringe has-been like Barr.

  4. It’s interesting that even a lunatic fringe has-been like Barr only says something like this in the context of a crazy political rant.

  5. It’s interesting that anyone in Hollywood would first understand and secondly admit that it is even possible for a movie to be “psychopathic.”

That last point is my favorite.

The Goblin Universe view—of course!—is that the really smart people in Hollywood have understood for decades that a movie can be psychopathic.

Why would anyone want to make psychopathic movies?

I’ve been touching on that topic for as long as this blog as been around.

For instance, in: Return To The Other Way Of Making A Frankenstein’s Monster
