(The Hollywood Reporter)   John Landis points out why movies suck: "It's very common now to spend more money selling a movie than making a movie. So the reason they make remakes and sequels is because they're brands, like Coca Cola"   (hollywoodreporter.com) divider line 58

Uh, I don't know about you, but I've seen a shiat load of movies in the last few years which I overwhelmingly enjoyed. 2-5 a year, just like every other year since I was 10 (I'm 30 now).

Perspective is a biatch. We only remember the success and the cult classics (which are called such because they usually fail at the box office..?). We forget that every year is full of the same 99% shiat, 0.5% tolerable, 0.5% great stuff, in every genre and media.

Same goes for video games, people always biatch about how 'modern games' suck compared to old school. No, you're just compressing 20 years of gaming, pulling out only the really great ones, and discarding the rest of the dross as though it never happened.  For ever Chrono Trigger we got a Chrono Cross.

It's only in the last few years that you were informed of what a new movie made in it's first weekend.
How it did, has nothing to do with whether the movie was good or not, because there is no time for word of mouth on the first day a movie is released.

Attendance on the first day is solely dependant upon pre-release hype.

I can't count the number of "comedies" I've seen that featured every funny moment the movie had to offer, in it's pre-release trailer.

"Everything is changing.  Steve Jobsdestroyed the music industry. He decided a song is worth 20 cents, just like that. (Snaps his fingers.) Boom. Destroyed," Landis commented. "So everything has changed. There are no villains here. No one has the handle on it. I understand why they're scared. All their decisions are based on fear."

I'm not trying to white knight Steve Jobs here, but he actually saved the music industry.  He mostly saved them from themselves.

I'm sure he had to drag them kicking and screaming, because they're a bunch of crusty old idiots who can't seem to comprehend technology or understand how people wanted their music content delivered.

Jobs, however, did understand.  What other online music services were around before iTunes?

Also, iTunes songs are .99 not .20.

Remake and sequels are also safe money. If they made money once, they'll make money again. Studios are more comfortable going after safe money and building brands then they are going with new ideas, which are "riskier". They're unknown.

I see the "modern movies suck", but the main complaint (and this is both with movies and videogames) is that they're all treadding the same ground and copying one another. Videogames are a great example of this, where so many games are being forced to have Multi-player, and how FPSes are so focused on "Realism" and cover-hugging and end up being too similar. Also there hasn't been many turn-based RPGs out in a long time (hell, there haven't been a lot of RPGs period). Video games "back in the day" differed a lot. Now, no one is trying to innovate or do anything different.

Yeah, there's a lot of nostalgia aching, but there's also a lot of styles that just aren't made any more. Take comedy movies for instance. There's only three type of comedies being made now. RomComs (which aren't funny), Sandler-style gross-out childish retardfun, and a few parody movies made by the same guys - either the Wayans or the (Insert)-Movie guys. The other day I sat down and watched Top Secret (1984) for the first time and it was hilarious, and they don't make comedies like that anymore - where there's just about a joke every minute of a great variety of types.

FriarReb98: Lackofname: either the Wayans or the (Insert)-Movie guys

Looking at IMDB, the guys who do Insert-Movie (and other parodies like The Starving Games) are Jason Freidberg and Aaron Seltzer.  Friedberg and Seltzer ALSO wrote/directed the Scary Movie series with the Wayans, but the Wayans never worked on any 'Insert-Movie', and Friedberg/Seltzer aren't involved in the Haunted House movies the Wayans are now doing.

Also, they don't get equal releases, either.  If I remember, Independence Day was the big blockbuster of the summer, but Trainspotting opened the same week and made much more per screen, but it opened in a fraction of the number of theaters ("art theaters" and the like).

The King's Bounty and Elven Legacy series are both pretty good. And Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes was a blast. Though I'm not sure any of those qualify as recent. MMVI gave me rage-induced migraines.

Just started playing Fallen Enchantress a few nights ago since it was on sale. Jury is still out on that one.

Video games 'back in the day' cost a carton of smokes to make. Now adays they run billions.  It's more a result of production costs getting insane for AAA titles. For the money, games HAVE to return, otherwise studios close.  Frankly, the way to do that is to give the public what they want, and what the public wants, for the past few years, has been competent good looking competitive FPS.  CoD and Battlefield aren't the industry leaders because that's ALL there is to play. They deliver what people want. If you want shooters, there's oddball stuff like Warframe, Team Fortress, Counter Strike, Left 4 Dead, and so on.

We're also seeing a resurgence of indy games, from small studios.

 I find your 'three comedies' claim a bit specious. 2013 had: Frozen, Secret life of Walter Mitty, Begin Again, We're the Millers.  I stopped on the first page of IMDB and hand picked the four most dissimilar movies I could find.

Between Netflix, Amazon Prime, torrent, redbox, and boutique theaters, if you can't find anything but the shiat you listed, it's your fault, not the industry.

There's a wealth of crazy, innovative ideas out there. But as stated above, the big names are only doing what's safe because of the cost of developing an AAA title.

maybe the model of a 90-120 minute movie is flawed.  If it's not long enough for a good story maybe you should either opt for smaller vignettes or very long movies with intermissions

I see the "modern movies suck", but the main complaint (and this is both with movies and videogames) is that they're all treadding the same ground and copying one another. Videogames are a great example of this, where so many games are being forced to have Multi-player, and how FPSes are so focused on "Realism" and cover-hugging and end up being too similar. Also there hasn't been many turn-based RPGs out in a long time (hell, there haven't been a lot of RPGs period). Video games "back in the day" differed a lot. Now, no one is trying to innovate or do anything different.

Yeah, there's a lot of nostalgia aching, but there's also a lot of styles that just aren't made any more. Take comedy movies for instance. There's only three type of comedies being made now. RomComs (which aren't funny), Sandler-style gross-out childish retardfun, and a few parody movies made by the same guys - either the Wayans or the (Insert)-Movie guys. The other day I sat down and watched Top Secret (1984) for the first time and it was hilarious, and they don't make comedies like that anymore - where there's just about a joke every minute of a great variety of types.

You do know that Top Secret was a parody, right?


You mean skeet surfing isn't a real thing??

Ryker's Peninsula: If I hadn't directed a good movie since 1978, I'd be angry too.


Oh, I'd be a bit more generous than that.  At least give him Blues Brothers, American Werewolf in London, and  Trading Places.  That being said, those movies succeeded not because of John Landis's direction but in spite of it.  They all had some other factors like a good script and/or strong performances (e.g., John Belushi in  Animal House and Eddie Murphy in Trading Places) that put them over the top.

whither_apophis: I admit I'll go see Titanic II: The Bobbingening

/If Cameron ever quits screwing around with midget subs.


I'd go see a movie about midgets who had their own submarine.
