Depressed Handle IV

The door handle has no opinion of big selling cinema, pointing out that the beauty of bad films is that they fund good films indirectly as their profits get used by studios to take more risks. I pointed out this was a tad idealistic as it only benefited films made within the big studio system, but the door handle did raise the valid “Pixar” point.

At this point I realised I was discussing cinema with a small metal mechanism.

    Maybe the door handle realised the information presented to it does not necessarily reflect the popularity of the films in question since the list from which it is taken (I’m assuming this) is not adjusted for inflation.
    A meaningful list could only be based upon the number of people who actually went to see the films. Ideally this would mean a simple count of tickets sold, but more practically a list adjusted for inflation or better still, increases in ticket prices. The closest anyone appears to have come to producing such a list puts Gone with the Wind at the top and Titanic a still somewhat depressing 6th. Though the list is only based figures for North America (here)

  2. The door handle might indeed be wise to such marketing methods/economics and the nature of inflation. I must ask it! I’ve not seen Gone With The Wind but it can’t be a worse use of my time than Titanic was…
