Right there with you. I'm not a movie buff but I would like some new original ideas for movie plots. All this remake/copycat business isn't my cup of tea.

TV is miles beyond movies at this point for me. With movies, I get bored after 30 minutes almost every time. I don't even go to theaters anymore because of it.

In response to Reply # 10


  

          

With digital and the easy access to cameras, it will become easier for more independent filmmakers to make micro budget expressions of themselves and the cream will rise.

It used to be that you had to afford film school or you had to know someone. Now all you need is a bit of equipment that's cheaper than ever... and a vision.

Add on to that how more women and minority filmmakers are getting noticed than ever before, and... Yeah. The future is bright.

Studios may be in a world of trouble... but even then, we've seen massive improvements in the quality of enough big budget cinema due to technological advances and an astonishing amount of care for story/character thanks to the popularity of people like Chris Nolan, Peter Jackson, the folks at Marvel and their vision, and the continued dominance of Spielberg. Most aren't emulating Bay anymore... because Bay knockoffs (Battleship) flop. Every studio wants the next Nolan or Whedon or (soon enough, a resurgence of) Shane Black. I'm more than okay with that.

But it is nice knowing that filmmakers have more ways to make a movie, considering non-filmmakers run the film industry.

Everyone drives. I'm talking about a very select bunch.

I'd argue more access to roads and cars for everyone WOULD result in a larger number of hyper-skilled race car drivers, who might otherwise just attend NASCAR as a hobby and interest without access to roads and cars growing up.

I just personally don't like them anymore. I get bored and am rarely surprised by the outcomes and plot lines. I especially cant sit though remake after remake or sequel after sequel. Really, if it ain't Spike or Rogen, I will have a hard time watching the whole thing. That's just me though. I want to like them like I used to but movies have become indistinguishable.

My top 25 last year included three sequels and one literary adaptation you could call a remake. And I had to leave OFF films I really enjoyed.

If you like Spike and Rogen and only see their stuff, you had a TERRIBLE 2012, lol. I saw Holy Motors, Seven Psychopaths, Middle of Nowhere, Lincoln, Perks of Being a Wallflower, Cabin in the Woods, Moonrise Kingdom, Looper, ParaNorman, Life of Pi, etc. The list goes on.

Its been a terrible last few years, I don't think I've watched 25 new movies all the way through in the last 5 years. I've heard good things about some of theses movies you listed but I like comedy 1st and foremost and anything spike pushin' second. The problem is if the movie ain't good within 30 minutes, I will bail and if the trailer don't make me want to see it (which 99% trailers fail to do for me) it would take an act of congress to get me to watch it. I'm always down to laugh though and i will see the new rogen film eventually.

lol, not even that many. Haven't seen a new movie since I don't even remember. In theaters it was some Jamie Foxx movie from 09 i don't remember. This year i finally saw The Network, Enter the Void and Space is the Place. That's really it.


edit: my bad, i'm being a lazy reader with the game on.....I never said I know about the state of cinema, I'm just stating that I've become less interested over the years.....I try to watch plenty of movies but never get through most of them because I get bored. So as a result, since about 2010/11, I started just relying on trailers and sometimes word of mouth to catch my interest but haven't had any luck (Mostly because everything seems predictable or a remake/sequel). That's all I was trying to say

... I gave 3 out of 5 stars or higher to 66 of them.

Now, am I seeking out movies I think I'll like, and ignoring certain ones that I don't think I'll like? Absolutely.

But that means I genuinely liked 66 movies last year. And just from an eyeball check, 44 of those films went to mainstream chain theaters last year.

I'm not saying you'll like all of them. I'm saying, there are absolutely plenty of options for everyone out there.

Before that After Earth I Think; then Fast 6. I did see Star Trek. That's one movie a month. There not that many options out there IMO. I wanted to see Mud still that's only two movies outta 4 weeks of releases. I know I could search Netflix and indie movies online or the studios could add some more variety since films can be made cheap now.

but the timing is hilarious:

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/steven-spielberg-predicts-implosion-film-567604

George Lucas echoed Spielberg's sentiments at an event touting the opening of a new USC School of Cinematic Arts building, saying big changes are in store.

Steven Spielberg on Wednesday predicted an "implosion" in the film industry is inevitable, whereby a half dozen or so $250 million movies flop at the box office and alter the industry forever. What comes next -- or even before then -- will be price variances at movie theaters, where "you're gonna have to pay $25 for the next Iron Man, you're probably only going to have to pay $7 to see Lincoln." He also said that Lincoln came "this close" to being an HBO movie instead of a theatrical release.

George Lucas agreed that massive changes are afoot, including film exhibition morphing somewhat into a Broadway play model, whereby fewer movies are released, they stay in theaters for a year and ticket prices are much higher. His prediction prompted Spielberg to recall that his 1982 film E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial stayed in theaters for a year and four months.

The two legendary filmmakers, along with CNBC anchor Julia Boorstin and Microsoft president of interactive entertainment business Don Mattrick, were speaking at the University of Southern California as part of the festivities surrounding the official opening of the Interactive Media Building, three stories high and part of the USC School of Cinematic Arts.

Lucas and Spielberg told USC students that they are learning about the industry at an extraordinary time of upheaval, where even proven talents find it difficult to get movies into theaters. Some ideas from young filmmakers "are too fringe-y for the movies," Spielberg said. "That's the big danger, and there's eventually going to be an implosion or a big meltdown. There's going to be an implosion where three or four or maybe even a half-dozen megabudget movies are going to go crashing into the ground, and that's going to change the paradigm."

Lucas lamented the high cost of marketing movies and the urge to make them for the masses while ignoring niche audiences. He called cable television "much more adventurous" than film nowadays.

"I think eventually the Lincolns will go away and they're going to be on television," Lucas said. "As mine almost was," Spielberg interjected. "This close -- ask HBO -- this close."

"We're talking Lincoln and Red Tails -- we barely got them into theaters. You're talking about Steven Spielberg and George Lucas can't get their movie into a theater," Lucas said. "I got more people into Lincoln than you got into Red Tails," Spielberg joked.

Spielberg added that he had to co-own his own studio in order to get Lincoln into theaters.

"The pathway to get into theaters is really getting smaller and smaller," Lucas said.

Mattrick and Spielberg also praised Netflix, prompting Boorstin to ask Spielberg if he planned to make original content for the Internet streamer. "I have nothing to announce," said the director.
Lucas and Spielberg also spoke of vast differences between filmmaking and video games because the latter hasn't been able to tell stories and make consumers care about the characters. Which isn't to say the two worlds aren't connected. Spielberg, in fact, has teamed with Microsoft to make a "TV" show for Xbox 360 based on the game Halo and he is making a movie based on the Electronic Arts game Need for Speed.

between. There was so much junk out earlier this year so i decided to do the first No Watch Post,lol. As far as independent movies go, hmm i really don't care for a lot of those either. A lot of them are corny as hell. I am also gonna start ignoring Oscar bait films. I looked at some of the November and December releases and i will definitely be skipping much of the shit coming out at the end of this year.

Last year i walked out on Cloud Atlas and Lincoln. Lincoln damn that motherfucking shit was boring as hell.
