Not trying to defend him, I know he is caught up in his own thinking but... Other than Indy 4, I have never heard of those other two films. If they are not original or "Experimental" films, perhaps in his skewed since they are, and if they failed, he doesn't want to try.
If I had Billions, I'd make films for both myself (where I didn't care what anyone thought), and also other films for fans (assuming I had any
). Sure nobody likes to be negatively criticized, but if the films are "for you" then who cares? I think he wants to be liked, which is only natural, much more so than he lets on, which is sad.
There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.
