The latest movie "meaning"

Lately I’ve noticed how movie meaning leans towards the box office soap operas instead of great filmmaking. I would love to hear more discussions and media communication about what these films mean, not the statistics and box office grosses. Where is the headline for Red this weekend. If it was not for the three new films, Red would have been the number one film this week. More people are talking about the showdowns and competitions between Due Date and Megamind. Sports themes easily permeate through media. The populous wants their desires fulfilled and bends towards media that fulfills them. What does it really mean in the grand scheme? What do we learn before we move on to the next entertainment craze. What do these desires tell us about ourselves?
