Do you remember when was the last time you really felt like hypnotized by a movie?
Do you think that the audience’s taste has changed to know the difference between a bad movie or a good movie?
Do you think that the negativity taste of the audience is the reason effecting movies’ ratings?
As a one of the audience, what do you base on to judge a movie?
In my opinion, the story & the acting come first and then comes the graphics & sound effects.
I think that the world has a lack of good writers, does anyone agree?
Actually, there are good writers, but I assume that they don’t want to jeopardize their stories by letting them made as movies. Because, they feel by doing that, their stories will be less interesting than they are in books. Because, in show business, a story has to be compressed and extracted to become a three hours long -maximum. And because of this process the story becomes less interesting.
And this will reflect on the writer’s renown which is what he has in his life as a writer.
Another reason that keeps the good writers’ work away from the show business in my opinion is there fear of movies performance, acting, graphics & visual and audio effects will not deliver their story the way it should be.
After the story, comes the acting which is the most sensitive pedestal of the movie that will deliver the real performance of the movie. The acting role here is capable to control the quality of the story.
Do you remember when was the last time you felt the goose bumps because of an amazing acting scene?
We don’t want to go through the audio and the graphics because they are doing good because of the new cinematic technology.
Finally, we find ourselves in a crime scene and in front of us, laying a dead body of an old man called “G. Movie” in a red dark room. The victim is stabbed to death by three different daggers. The victim’s body is filled by scars and old bruises - seems like he was attacked several times before. Three types of DNA samples were found- seems like the victim was defending himself. The suspects are “N. Audience”, “T. Writer” & “B. Actor”, but because they are his best friends, the case was closed.
This is my opinion. I shared it with you to seek help in finding the real reason behind the question which is eating my head lately (Why don’t we have good movies anymore?)

|In this day and age you take what you can get out of movies.. There are some really good ones and there are some really bad ones but in the end, ultimately it is up to the individual person because really there is no wrong answer to whether a movie is good or bad it's just solely based on the person and their opinion... Their are movies I really enjoy and think that are overall pretty entertaining but my fiance hates them.. Just like their are movies she loves and think are great movies that I can't stand.. |
And I think their are good movies out here but thats just my opinion.. I liked Wolfman.. Others didn't... Some people put most of their focus on the acting and the script where I just go in wanting to see an overall entertaining film.. It's almost like music for example.. Their is good hip-hop and their is bad hip-hop.. You have Soulja Boy and then you have Jay-Z.. You have Jim Jones and then you have Jay Electronica.. Their will always be good and bad but whether it's good or bad is solely in the eyes of the beholders...
|I would like to be your editor! I like the subject and the article. I am glad someone is writing something for ET for sure. There are some grammatical errors, none where that big of a deal, and some of the sentence structure made it hard to follow what you intended to convey but once I re-read your story I think I understand what you mean.|
Being critical of movies is of course subjective to the individual. I happen to LOVE old movies. I like the really old movies and the hiss and pop of the audio bring back a nostalgic feeling for me and I personally enjoy these little nuances but most of the younger generation of today would "gay" bash these sub par aspects. I find that for movie lovers it all depends on what they grew up watching. People tend to think that their generation had the BEST of most things and this is mainly because of the "warm fuzzy feeling" individuals get when movies bring back good memories of their youth.
For me, Saturday morning cartoons does it for me. Today's youth has no idea what I mean. There was a time when people could not watch what they wanted to watch when they wanted to watch it. If it was not showing on TV or at the movies all you had were your memories or your imagination! People had to plan their lives around the TV schedule if they wanted to see something. If you were not at home when your show aired you missed out and there was NO HOPE AT ALL in getting to see it. A lot of the times the shows would be shown one more time during re-runs but that was not always the case.
Saturday morning cartoons were the best though! Every channel [ALL THREE OF THEM!] had cartoons all all morning until about 1 to 2PM in the afternoon. Then the networks either showed sports or old films. I would stick around and either get to watch TARZAN or the old Adventures of SUPERMAN TV series which I dearly loved. The networks were very competitive with their cartoons back then too. Very much like the prime time TV shows are today or before the advent of the "Reality TV Shows" that litter the networks now. To me the cartoon back then were far superior to today's Sponge Bob and the like. I say all this to make my point. Its all just an opinion. I very much bet that todays children would not want to watch any of those cartoon I LOVED when I was young save perhaps Scooby-Doo which everyone of all ages still love.
There are so many new films if you dig hard enough you can find something you like. Its easy to look back at the THOUSANDS of old films and dig up the best and say "They don't make films like that anymore!". Well look at all the bad garbage that came out at the same time as the so called classic films! There tons of bad films too. Some are so bad its hard to believe anyone even wasted money putting it on film! These films you will not see today unless you go way out of your way to find and view them. I bought a very cheap set of 100 Sci Fi films from the early 1900's up until the late 1960's and let me tell you...most of these films are so bad I can all most smell pooh when I watch them!
There have been and there always will be good and bad films. Cherry picking the good ones from yesteryear can lead you to believe that Hollywood once produced nothing but gold but it just aint true! Thats all I got to say about that! Thank you for your time and thank you for such a wonderful topic!
|i think the problem arises that movies are made for demographics not because they want a movie but because they want a movie for a specific audience. Some older movies i can watch with all my family and no one would get bored but nowadays most movies seem aimed at specific audience e.g. you have horror movie of the month aimed at mainly teens who want to go to the cinema before going getting their end away then you have action movie of the months aimed at teens and young adults who want a pretty picture to look at. Then you have sci fi of the month aimed at for want of a better term "geeks" of the world who want their sub star trek fix (before anyone takes offence to that i m probably one of the biggest sci fi fans in the world and couldn t care at being called a geek) then you have romantic comedy of the month so all the couples have something to see together|
Nothing is ever designed to sweep across audiences anymore some of the most successful films of all time could not be put into one genre which is why they are successful because everybody wants to watch them or enjoys watchng them. The best example recently i can think of is avatar, i watched this with my nan and several other family members and most are hardcore sci fi haters but within half an hour only my brother had gone out the room.
|It seems Holloywood has come to the conclusion, that the audience has in fact become slow, and could not possible follow a plot without thier beind a explosion of some sort every other minute. After stating that I do not mind the CGI, and fx that are in m ovies but it seems that a lot of movies that have been comming out lack the good story that pulls the audiencwe in then pepper the story with CGI/FX. It ias possible though that Hollywood believes that this current generation does not have the attention span to watch a movie without massive does of CGI/FX. Just my opion though, thanks for the article.|

|Hollywood ran out of new ideas for films 30 years ago and they're fast running out of old ideas and they're close to being desperate for any idea at all but they will carry on releasing thoughtless mind numbing rubbish and treating people like idiots. CGI and 91.7 surround sound does NOT make a good story and I totally agree that they seem to think we all have the attention span of a cheese sandwich and the IQ of an unwashed sock. |
Avatar seems lately to be used as a standard for a good film, but is it? It has been likened to "Pocahontas in Space" and I have to agree that the stories are very very similar, but in the simplest terms, the story itself is as old as story telling? Wrapping it up in a 2 hour computer game cut scene will not change the fact that it's been told before and will continue to be told.
Until people stop being mislead by advertising and marketing then they will continue to hand over money for something they will afterwards wonder "was it worth it" and if you have any doubt as to how bad things are...there has been serious thought given to the making of a film called "Battleship" and yes we're talking about the board game as inspiration.

|You could also call it a transition period. The actors and actresses I remember growing up are all getting old now and are having to pass the proverbial torch to the next generation. For a person like me I become disenchanted because I no longer get to see my favorite actor/actress. It takes some getting used to acquainting yourself with the bevvy of new stars/starlets. If you go back to what Shakespear says, there are only 8 topics to write about. There is nothing new, and never will be. It has been done, and it has been re-done. To bring a fresh appeal to the next gen movies involves a good script. People (myself included) love a good story. If CGI helps get that point across great, but it can never single-handedly make the movie. |
I feel like Hollywood takes shortcuts in developing films and figures if you throw in some explosions and some gory deaths, then you have a blockbuster hit. It would be nice to get an insider to shed some light on the true Hollywood mentality. I think more or less they've been churning out poor movies for some time, but as the sentence states, "I think." Movies are a derivative of taste and everyones' taste is different. I believe all of the people who commented here have valid points and this has been an entertaining read.
I'm of the belief that if Hollywood wants to renew faith in its viewers, then it needs to figure out what the viewers really want. Make it a good story that appeals to all ages (and not necessarily Disneyesque) also cut the budget. Leave the unrated crap on the editor's floor where it belongs, cut out the million dollar explosions, leave CGI alone and start cultivating lasting talent instead of indulging the flavor of the of month or year.
|(Why don’t we have good movies anymore?)|
