Yes he is, I only wish they had been better movies!
I hate that Annies song is used during such a disgusting scene, ****Annie's Song - John Denver (Free Fire, 2016)

yes, that article is quoting another recent article with the full interview: http://www.vulture.com/2017/08/why-is-john-denvers-music-in-so-many-movies-this-year.html

Elizabeth, we weigh those considerations when licensing. Usually my thought is that if you're inclined not to enjoy that kind of scene, you're less likely to see the film in the first place, though the media attention on our licensing has drawn some attention to films that may not have reached the wider John Denver audience otherwise.

This was my post on Facebook about the article.

And I somewhat agree with you here. But I can also say from a personal stand....Hubby and I have watched a LOT just like that. As our genres are Sci-Fi/Fantasy, and action.
