Local film critics were talking today about "Ender's Game" looking like it wouldn't get a sequel, due to poor box office. "Olympus Has Fallen" is apparently considered more worthy, despite it's record? There must be some kind of big tax write off, or something. A buddy who's tried to sell scripts, and has seen some of the system in Hollywood, paints a pretty surrealistic picture of that industry. To me, the amazing thing is that good films still manage to get made.

I enjoyed OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN significantly more than WHITE HOUSE DOWN even though the latter may have a better & bigger budget, but the former IMHO was a better action film. I know some friends who felt the other way around.

I'd rather have more action movies with Butler than Tatum or Foxx.
Tatum is better at the Jumpstreet flicks.

Box office was $161m for a budget of $70m. That's good enough for Hollywood. The reviews may have been mixed, but i don't think anyone expected anything less.

I've not seen it myself yet , but it looks like it belongs in the "Dumb, but Fun" category. Nothing wrong with a bit of escapism every now and again. I loathe pretentious movie critics, who don't understand that not all movies have to be serious or thought provoking.
