Hollywood's Iraq Is A Flop

"Rendition". Bomb.
"In the Valley of Elah". Bomb
"The Kingdom". Bomb

It seems that Hollywood hasn't had good luck when it comes to attacking the military lately.
"These movies have to be entertaining," Harris told AFP. "You can't just take a movie and make it anti-war or anti-torture and expect to draw people in.
Or maybe, just maybe, people are sick and tired of Hollywood's hatred for the military and America. Just a thought.

Having seen 'the kingdom'
(a copy from the net, of course, there's not much from hollywood that would have me part with dollars)
I can say that it is not anti-military/anti-america. If anything it celebrates the 'universal brotherhood' of the military that crosses national/cultural boundaries.

Maybe, just maybe, audiences are indifferent to pro/anti military films, they could be tired of both sides trying to sell their propaganda.
As a percentage of films - action, you'd think that all americans are either 'rogue cops' or ''towel-head'-shooting soldiers'... that might be what audiences are tired of?
