HOLLYWOOD TAKE 2: The 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony

28 Jul

Hopefully we are not being too self-conscious by saying there is one area of the entertainment industry LIH rarely covers.  Though there are purely pragmatic reasons this happens; the easiest to recall is the most mundane.   This site for Cinephiles rarely discusses sports because it rarely appears at the cinema multiplexes.  Using the Free Dictionary by Farlex, the Olympics Games is commonly defined as:

a. (used with a pl. verb) A group of modern international athletic contests held as separate winter and summer competitions every four years in a different city. In 1994 the winter games were moved ahead two years so that the winter and summer games would alternate every two years.

b. (used with a sing. verb) The set of contests that occur in one season: an Olympic Games that was boycotted by many countries. Also called Olympics. [1]

Hopefully we will continue to push beyond our passive lack of acknowledgement of this entertainment arena.  Certainly the continued punishment of the Penn State football team by the NCAA has ripple affects that impact everyone who relies on entertainment for their amusement [2].  As usual all stories in this installment of Hollywood Take 2 were widely reported in the media.
