|I never said that all of today's movies are bad; just the vast majority of the mainstream ones. The independent movies are indeed much better and often very unique. They feel like proper movies, not overextended television series episodes.|
Almost all of the mainstream movies though are just plain lousy to me. Take Rogue One for example. I know a lot of people liked this movie, but for me I was ticking items on a checklist while watching it. Overdone CG effects, overly gritty BBC drama tone to make it look more "adult", a main character with no real personality apart from "I've had a tough life but I'm not going to give up", oodles of retro references to past Star Wars movies, etc. There was hardly anything that was weird and wonderful in it, instead just the same stuff you'd find in any modern CG action adventure film.
