Hollywood is running out of ideas. How many sequels have you seen of one movie that was not needed? If you said more than 3 I have proven my point. Sometimes movies that do get sequels always work including The Planet of The Apes series revival. But most of the time we wont see an original idea. The movie Gravity was almost ruined by the studio that made it. What I am trying to say is that Hollywood is trying to ruin the movie industry.

I would like to thank my opponent for this debate.
Hollywood is the movie industry. While you may not like the "quality" of films, there is no doubt hollywood isnt trying to destroy itself. Hollywood invests in movies they believe will get the most returns. So if there is a demand for low quality films, hollywood will keep them coming. The "quality" can be blamed on hollywood but ultimately the viewers decide what they are willing to pay for. If the demand is met, or supplied, thats more of the viewers fault than hollywood. The point is hollywod runs like any other business and no business ever tries to harm itself. This is why hollywood is not trying to destroy the movies, theyre just meeting the viewers demand for lower quality films. But then what is "quality"? While you may think its "low" quality, appearently millions of movie goers do not. Sales have declined but this is due to bootlegging and other media outlets not quality. Every movie has at one point, recieved a poor review. As we know that "review" is really just one "opinion" of many. In busines, especially concerning sales, majority rules. Hollywood has shown itself to be aggressive in its business practices. They seize every opportunity to make a profit. That doesnt sound like a business trying to sabotage itself.

Hollywood isn't trying to ruin the music industry, it's just succeeding. How many times have you heard the phrase 'that's so stereotypically Hollywood' or 'that's Hollywood for you'? That's because Hollywood's quality of movies has dropped. There is no hint of realism there any more. And the reason they have millions of viewers is because it's bad. If someone says 'this movie is terrible, do not watch it.', a person is automatically compelled to watch it, either to prove the other person wrong or simply to complain with them.

Hollywood relies too heavily on things like CGI and grandiose action sequences in order to sway a crowd. While they can be enjoyable to watch the film industry doesn't seem to want to jump off that bandwagon. Look at director Christopher Nolan (Batman Begins, The Prestige, Inception, etc). Mr. Nolan recently denied the order by Warner Brothers to film his upcoming movie, Interstellar, on a digital camera. He's filming it with both traditional cameras and the incredibly innovative IMAX cameras. Nolan doesn't rely on CGI and a lackluster story to make his movies great. He focuses more on the characters and plot. Hollywood needs more films like The Way Way Back, Napoleon Dynamite, and Inception if it truly wants to endure. It doesn't need propaganda pieces like Gravity or 12 Years A Slave *cough* Oscars *cough*

Are you saying Hollywood is deliberately trying to ruin the movie industry? And how do you define 'ruin'? You could mean financially ruin or hurting the quality of movies.
