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
The Year 1998 = More Than a Decade Ago
Mad Men = Not a Movie
Fair enough. Then 3:10 to Yuma
, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
and Drag Me to Hell
would all like a word with you.
Lionsgate isn't a bastion of high cinematic art, but it's not a hellhole.
I didn't do it. I wasn't even here that day!
