How is Lionsgate still around after all the crap that they churn out? I hope that a successful merger will rejuvenate both studios, or else both will fall into the black hole of old media never to be seen again, and that would be bad for MGM. I'd like Lionsgate to go though. Never seen anything they did that was any good.
I just took a quick wikipedia look at what movies they've produced over the last decade. Wow. That's a lot of crap. The few exceptions usually have some stipulation indicating that Lionsgate wasn't the main studio involved.

Excuse me, but Affliction, Buffalo 66,Gods and Monsters, Mr. Jealousy, and Love and Death on Long Island are nothing to sneeze at; these films were the best ones of the 1990's! Just because they made some stinkers doesn't mean that they are a crappy company artistically (they also make Mad Men as well.)
The Year 1998 = More Than a Decade Ago

Mad Men = Not a Movie
