    Always been that way. Always will be. 99.9% of what Hollywood cranks out has always been forgettable chaff but tards seem to expect every film to be Apocalypse Now or something.

      That's not true. Movies such as 9 1/2 Weeks, Titanic, Mulholland Dr etc would still be talked about months after release in a way that was organic, that is, real viewers talking about them instead of paid shills.

      not at all. what you're feeling has always been a thing, but there were "taste makers" that picked out the good stuff. tarantino for example, is right; if there weren't people to filter the dogshit stuff, the 1980s could be considered one of the worst decades for cinema.
      right now, and for the last 16 years, we've seen the complete browning of the west and internet, so our tastemaskers have essentially vanished, boxing themselves away from everyone.
      We're 4 years into 2020s and we don't still have definitive list for the 2010s despite getting one for the 2000s by 2011

      nobody rewatches movies from the last 10 years. not even capeshit. people used to go watch Jaws or Star Wars 10-15 times in theaters and then rewatch again on video. people still rewatch these movies. it's not nostalgia, they endured because they're classics (there are no new classics).

      No, people expect some films to be Apocalyose Now. There literally hasn't been a single movie worth watching made in 5+ years and that's being generous. Go look up the top movies of any year in the 80s or 90s for comparison.

        People decades from now will probably be jacking off over The Irishman the same as they do now with Apocalypse Now.
        Just because you guys dont like anything that's come out recently doesnt mean that it wont be considered a 'classic' in the future.

Off the top of my head, all mainstream films from 2023 that I enjoyed last year. I think you need to stop streaming/torrenting and get out to the theater more.

                I'm not the guy you were arguing with but I go to the movies almost every Saturday, yesterday for example I saw Poolman which was not good to say the least.

                I saw Asteroid City in theaters and thought it was one of the worst things ever rendered on celluloid.

                No, you need to put all of your pattern recognition skills aside, forget the shitty trailer and premise of the current release movie, and JUST GO and PAY $40 for one ticket and a small popcorn with no water to see the soulless Gosling action comedy or Monkey Reboot #476. Once you're there and pot committed to enjoying the slop, you will convince yourself that it was worthwhile, and that somehow these are modern classics.

                Believe me, I live right next to one of the best theaters in the country and I'm always looking for excuses to go. I don't watch anything on streaming and crave good theatrical experiences. But over the past 2-3 years I've only been intrigued to go maybe 10 times total. 8/10 of those I was disappointed. I really enjoyed OUATIH and Joker, but that's about it.

                My point is that the theatrical experience is objectively and measurably better in some cases. Recent examples being Maverick, Way of Water and Oppenheimer. Christopher Nolan movies alway lose a lot of impact when watched at home.

                But then we're back to why older movies don't seem to require the theatrical experience? I'm sure everyone would love to see Alien in theaters but I doubt even 1% of its fans have.

          All anyone does is make fun of the de-aging and terrible DeNiro fight scene. That piece of shit is nowhere near an "enduring classic."
          The closest thing in the last decade have been Tarantino films. OUATIH is a classic.

            The Irishman and The Master are the rare recent exceptions as modern classics that'll stand the test of time. But 95% of contemporary Hollywood productions are almost instantly forgotten.

              I would argue The Irishman literally can't be an enduring classic, because one of the requirements for that is timelessness. The shitty CGI and painfully too old cast specifically marks it as "of its time." People will say, "Oh, that's the movie Scorsese made in that period when he was past his prime, when superhero movies took over and everything turned to shit."

            Not only cultural conversation, but the actual Hollywood industry is still obsessed with rebooting/remaking, making sequels and prequels of that same classic media that was beloved 30-40 years ago. It's a zombified industry eating its own tail. Modern capeshit is the only real thing that's new, and it sucks.
