If they'd stop paying any hotshot that had 1 successful film 20+ million dollars, budgets would be pretty moderate. These are actors, directors and producers, for crying out loud. They entertain, they don't save lives. Then they would also be able to properly pay those who are really doing the important jobs nowadays: VFX people.
Any time the movie industry, or big sport industries like football, complain about their financial situation, I laugh out loud.
