Only Idiots Care - Part 1

Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise talk about and show off their new daughter Suri.

There are people out there, apparently lots of them, that actually pay money and go to the movies. There's probably a greater number who actually rent them -- the DVDs -- and watch them in their homes.

I can count on one hand the number of movies I have paid to see in the last 20 years. I have watched a number on DVD. I regrets them all -- all were a waste of time and money. Those films that have good special effects, are terrible stories. Great stories are cheapened on the big screen. There are exceptions, but they are so few in numbers.

The Hollywood product is so poor that it really is not an entertainment option, for me. As a society, we are drowning in a sea of entertainment pollution.

The fact that Vanity Fair pays millions for some pictures of a newborn is just the tip of the iceberg.
