Point is they cry about declining profits but all they do is put out remakes of stuff now a days and the remakes are worse than the originals usually. They only wait like 10 years to do a remake some times now haha they are so desperate.
If you put out a good movie people will pay to go see it I wouldn't even pirate 99.9% of the movies Hollywood puts out if I did pirate stuff.
If you want Hollywood to put out a good movie, then stop watching their crap until they do. And I'm not talking about just shifting over to pirated stuff, TOTALLY stop watching ALL movies. Follow this up with a letter. Not only to MPAA, but the movie studios, but more importantly, to major advertisers in movies ... Coke, Pepsi, AT&T, Apple, etc.
But ultimately just because you think that someone is charging "too much" for something does NOT give you the right to STEAL IT ... and try to justify to yourself by saying "The movie is so-so, I'd pay $8 to see it, but not $15, so instead I'll just take it and pay $0 for it."
That would be like me walking into a Ferrari dealership and say "I'll give you $25,000 for F12berlinetta." and when they say "Sorry, it costs $330,000." and you just go out and steal one instead.
