Default is this the worst generation in cinema history??

with the sjw flop of feminator and other classics like ghostbusters, oceans & star wars getting raped (even video games like battlefield), along with the absence of great actors (where's the pacinos, deniros, nicholsons and hopkins of today?), this has to be the shittiest era in film history. i mean, there's some good stuff out there, but this era is just LACKING. it's pretty sad to see.

shitty film era for sure. but greatest TV era.

True Detective S1 confirmed film actors could move towards the TV sector and do well.

It seems the older you get, the more your interest in videogames wanes a bit. I dunno, I just don't have the same interest in videogames in my late 20s as teenage years and early/mid 20s

ya. i can't get myself to play any fps game unless its cs, and playing that shit in pubs is nothing but a headache. only a handful of games interest me nowadays - turn based rpg's and strategies like xcom, divinity, civilization etc. plus i love the dark souls series and of course gta5 & rdd2. i'll play some madden if i have company. the typical gimmick shit like cod, batman, etc don't do it for me anymore.

There’s Nolan, Tarantino, DiCaprio, Phoenix Bale etc

There’s literally great movies every year. The difference is the volume of movies increased and the ones coming out aren’t ya style

Sounds like a bunch of bitches to me. Whining over movies smh

No doubt the film industry is going through a dark age right now, possibly the darkest period in all of film history... but my guess is that this is mainly because a huge amount of film talent has been going over to television/streaming.

Its not just the actors that have shifted to TV - directors, producers, writers, investors... the entire entertainment industry has shifted focus.

You're doing it wrong. The problem is you, not "cinema".

Indie stuff usually has a lot of passion put into it, a lot of the big names these days are all cash grabs other than Nintendo. It's a hack and slash series by Capcom from back in the day. New one game out this year, it's fun af.

I think there are less top tier movies being made in Hollywood though, but I agree it's not like they don't exist anymore either. The influx of comic book heroes, aka basic b*tch action movies have made it harder for movie studios to invest as much on the kind of movies Nolan, Tarantino, etc make compared to say 10-15 years ago.


Also, everybody needs to watch Parasite. That movie is ****ing money. Quick before it goes away from theaters. Will be watching the Lighthouse which I heard is really good, starring our new Bruce Wayne.
