I'm sure that is the case. I keep trumpeting that Hollywood is about entertainment and profit, not about accuracy or education.
You're both wrong then. If you ever read entertainment industry news it is clear the #1 most important thing in Hollywood is ego. A movie can lose money and completely fail to entertain, but if it makes the studio executives feel more important somehow it will still happen.
It's just a fortunate coincidence that making lots of money usually makes those guys feel good about themselves.
Are you saying that we can depend on Hollywood to create accurate depictions of historical events because the execs want to "feel good about themselves?"
To me, that fials logic.
If I ran a business, i'd be more than happy if my execs felt good about themselves. Morale in a workplace is an important thing. But, you're not going to feel good about yourself at the cost of my bottom line.
Also, in dealng with a corporation, if it starts loosing money, the stockholders start selling. The more they sell, the more assets leave the company. The more assets that leave the company, the less the company is worth. The less the company is worth, the less the value of a share of stock. The less the value of the share of stock, the more people who sell their stock. A corporation that starts loosing money is doomed.
I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm saying, I don't understand that line of thought.
A made-for-TV movie was made in regards to a murder that took place in my hometown. It was a shocking enough trial that the entire town was locked in tracking this case. When the movie was released, it was more or less accurate, but the events were placed out of order, giving a totally different processes of the law enforcement investigation than what actually happened.
The original "Spartucus" (Kirk Douglas) showed the most accurate depiction of Roman warfare I have ever seen; they marched in their maniples with ballet-like precision, formed a solid line, then -- it all fell apart as the Roman soldiers gave a war cry, drew their gladiuses and rushed the enemy forces like a bunch of hooligans. (Disappointing). The Romans, historically, marched forward in timed precision, launched their pilum at the enemy, then drew their gladius.
pelik, my reasoning and my observations make it extremely difficult for me to blindly agree with "Entertainment Industry News".
It's an interesting study, but I was talking to my older brother, who has practised psychiatry for 45 years, and he told me that in his lifetime they have discovered the "cause" of schizophrenia at least a dozen times! So be a bit skeptical.
They say they don't know what causes it today, but they do know there's a genetic element.
