Live by the buzz, die by the buzz

May be the audience's fault, of course, especially these days, but I can't help but wonder if overfamiliarity killed the desire to leave the house.

In the case of "Tintin" more likely lack of familiarity.

Unfortunately they must have oversold the fake people -- for some reason still not taking it in that audiences seem to hate them, unless used sparingly.
