Why are video games so violent? The ones I’ve seen remind me of the 4th of July, with everything exploding, buildings, cars, airplanes, men and women. Kill, kill, and kill for sport and entertainment.
This is fun. This is entertainment, right guys?
For me, there’s cinema, which I love and would fight for, and then there’s also entertainment, and I see them as very, very different. But sure, I’d love to do a blockbuster. I can’t wait for someone to tell me, ‘Explosion, run!’
It’s great to be able to connect parents with children both emotionally and through humor. I look forward to exploring family entertainment once again and examining the specifics of our day-to-day lives against the backdrop of an extraordinary adventure.
You want to make entertainment sometimes, and sometimes you want to make art, because I think the way we understand ourselves as human beings is through art, and the way we process emotions – I know I do – is through recognizing experiences on screen or in novels or in paintings.
I continue to see good growth in the mobile space; I expect to see PCs being the core driver in the home. And I mean that for entertainment along with the work-at-home space.
I enjoy being part of the entertainment industry, although I’m the laziest person that I’ve met yet in this business.
The fans are most important… when it comes to the entertainment industry. They are the ones that matter most, and they should be heard.
For a lot of artists in the entertainment industry, we can’t become too jaded with what’s going on with our personal lives and still not be connected with our people.
The entertainment industry is loaded with extraordinarily talented people. But the true, genuine originals, they’re rare.
People say child stars have a hard time ‘because of the entertainment business,’ but I think there’s a dysfunction before all that. I use the analogy, ‘If you’re a fool without money, you’ll be a fool with money.’
Universities exist to transmit knowledge and understanding of ideas and values to students not to provide entertainment for spectators or employment for athletes.
A lot of people say, ‘What set the Attitude Era up?’ or, ‘What started the Attitude Era?’ To me – and I was allegedly the leader of it – sports entertainment, pro wrestling, whatever you want to call it has always had an attitude. So, why that particular generation got labeled, I don’t know.
I mean, I think in the early days we were pretty… pretty British in our entertainment leads.
