Film-maker Michael Moore has branded Hollywood blockbusters the root of falling cinema sales. The FAHRENHEIT 9/11 director is fed up of hearing poor excuses for the dwindling box office numbers, arguing more people would watch movies if the standard of films increased. He says, "The continued decrease in attendance is not because of piracy, video games, or the internet, it's because the movies aren't very good anymore." Moore reports sell-out viewings at the second year of his Traverse City Film Festival in Michigan last week (ends06AUG06).
