...with Hollywood's worn out broken down tired shit.

Domestic revenues tumbled to a 2011 low of about $77 million this weekend, when the star-filled, holiday-themed romance "New Year's Eve" debuted at No. 1 with a weak $13.7 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.

It's the worst weekend in more than three years, since the weekend after Labor Day in 2008, when revenues amounted to $67.6 million, according to box-office tracker Hollywood.com. And it comes after an $81 million total a week earlier that had been this year's previous low.

"It's unbelievable how bad it is," said Hollywood.com analyst Paul Dergarabedian.

Jonah Hill's comedy "The Sitter" opened at No. 2 with just $10 million.

They're not fed up with reboots, remakes and sequels. Eight of the top ten grossing movies this year were sequels or reboots.

The other two were comic books.

Have any of Shakespeare's plays been remade, rebooted or rerun? Or did they stop performances in the 1600s?

Audiences are just fed up with disappointing movies. With better internet access and social networks more people are often saved from godawful movies. This is what the industry is complaining about. Even with the net they are still tricking too many people to go see terrible movies. Jack and Jill has stolen $83,642,000 so far.

It's hard not to be disappointed when tickets cost so much. But wait for Redbox and you can watch it for 10% the ticket price. Less than 10% if it was originally in 3D.
