A mythical creature known to occasionally visit corporate offices. Directors thrive upon the professionalism and professional attire of all employees of the offices, and as such, several notices are issued in advance of a director's arrival for people to be on their best behavior. Directors, however, are quite elusive - despite an employee's best behavior and finest dress, these efforts are often in vain, as directors do not desire to go slumming with the commonfolk. A director's smile is known to result in rapid career advancement. Ironically, the most common instance of a director's smile is from employee termination. Urban Dictionary

Since the directors are loving their little gold oscar, they no longer make good movies, resulting in movie goers having to settle for less "quality" movies. This time of the year is usually a month or two after the oscars and is the christmas for Blockbuster economically. Soon after, the disease is cured and we can once again...see good movies.
