Actors Join Writers on Strike, Effectively Shutting Down Hollywood – Will Anyone Notice?

Hollywood writers have been on strike for three months, and have now been joined by the Screen Actors Guild. This means that everything in Hollywood has come to a screeching halt.

Other than people who work in the industry, will anyone really notice? Are there any shows on TV that are so good that people will miss them over the coming weeks and possibly months?

As far as movies go, what are people going to miss? Yet another dumb superhero movie? Another woke lecture on why men are evil?

Most of the really good screenwriters left Hollywood over 20 years ago when they were told to “turn dark” in order to get good scripts to write. That’s what a former screenwriter who left told me. He wasn’t willing to go along with the rituals involving children. I think a lot of the ones who stayed may be getting arrested for crimes against children and actors getting arrested too. That’s why they are using AI and CGI to make some of these latest movies. The actors that are promoting the movies usually don’t even look like the original stars….Tom Cruise for example.
@cherokeepatti there are stars, or should i say, former stars coming forth with information about satanic rituals and other tactics that are happening in hollywood now. anybody surprised. probably not.

@SheCallsMeCrushDaddy It needs to be shut down. The industry is past salvaging at this point. The blood of children being shed is horrific.

Strikes are usually more effective when it halts production of something people actually like, want or need. As for me, this will have no effect on my life.

@Bearsfan67 I haven’t been to a movie theater in nearly 30 years. Won’t miss it.
there will always be reruns.
Don't care. I can't feel sorry for the over-paid celebs. I can feel empathy for the poor slobs down in the movie making trenches that are likely over-worked and under-paid.
its a cover.

hollyweird is having abud lite moment.

nobodies buying tickets to their woke garbage..

No loss. Other than The Sound Of Freedom, there are no good movies now or upcoming.

No one will miss satanic hollyweird.

Nope! The stuff they have been putting out the last couple of years is pure crap! And with them not putting anything out at least our kids won't be getting brainwashed.

A good many are having their asses picked up and hauled to Gitmo and other island camps for tribunals. Hard to make movies when that’s going on

I don't really care. Most are overpaid anyway. Let them live on what they have stashed away.

I kind of appreciate how literally nothing matters to you outside of dunking on liberals. And don't get me wrong, I dunk on liberals all the time but this is baffling.

There's no real life, there's no actual real world implications. Everything is just ranting about how bad the other side is. Other people don't exist. Just making fun of shit and saying woke every two seconds. What a weird way to live your life.

I never mentioned LIBERAL in this post.
This post is about Hollywood and how irrelevant they have made themselves.
If you want to include liberals - I'm ok with that.

@Budwick Your mention of "woke" kinda gave away the reason for your post.

I actually spoke to a union guy yesterday(not one of the ones on strike). He said that there's zero cooperation. The big wigs think that everything can be done for free between computers/AI and the cost slashing is out of control. There's a war that's been brewing for years(I know, I was a casualty) and now the chickens have come home to roost The abject greed of the morons who run the big studios--into the ground, I might add--has got to be put in check.

I feel the worst for the tech people and smaller writers/assistants who stand to get majorly screwed. We have heads of 2 major corporations saying that the little guys are being unreasonable while they pocket millions. Millions! So something has to give.

Meh, nothing worth watching anway
Why would we? Hollywood writers and actors teach us there's no reason for politics and we really just want to shop and take drugs.

You would that the writers would be independent
