      Many reasons, but the main one is that israelites hadnt achieved total hegemonic control of our culture yet, so everything was poured into entertaining a moral, white, Christian nation of patriots. This required top talent, the best writers, directors, actors, sets, and cinematographers money could buy. People also needed to be beautiful and elegant. israelites want the opposite of these things. They love ugliness, cheap trash, and vulgarity. Its like how israelites say “we made all the Christmas songs!” When israelites are subordinate to White Christians, they are forced to use their high IQ and deep pockets for the forces of good. They dont make Christmas songs anymore because they have the power to make ugly disgusting garbage now even though nobody wants it.

      Wrong. You can turn on TCM any random day and its non stop gold. Meanwhile in 2024 there is max 2 good movies a year.

        No, moron, because you compare the best with the best and the new best is just dogshit in comparison

        Some of the “best” movies were panned critically and could even be box office flops and it took years of word of mouth, Tv exposure, etc. to slowly turn them into modern classics and best of the best. Wizard of Oz, a lot John Carpenter’s movies, It’s a wonderful life, etc. were either dismissed and failed to make any profit when they originally came out and this board would have written them off a slop just like it does with everything new.

          TCM plays “bad” movies all the time. It literally has thousands of movies on rotation from just the 30s-50s. Can you think of 1000s of quality movies from 2000-now? What about 2010-now? I bet its hard to even name 20.

          Everything about movies is subjective.
          It's my subjective opinion that the lack of effort in modern movies is making them worse than movies from the era where they actually tried to make things entertaining. You're allowed to prefer newer movies if you like them more somehow.
          Want to note though that I thought recent movies were better before I actually started watching older stuff and realized I was completely wrong.

            There isn’t a lack of effort, it’s an issue of the system being shit because of people in charge only care about money and next quarterly profits which is curbing creativity and quality as the executives only green light and finance shit which they think makes the most amount of money with least amount of cost and would rather produce AI written incoherent garbage than allow creative people make what they want to make and get paid a liveable wage for their work.

            Good movies are still made despite these issues but you actually have to know to look for them instead of just expecting to be served them on a silver platter.

                The fact that people in Japan and people in Spain use entirely different grammar means that it's subjective. It's not an objective part of reality, it's something different groups decided upon.

    Film was expensive, thus time shooting was that much more critical to get right-- actors had to be actually good. It was a new and novel a medium as the internet was for Y2K to present, or Television was to Boomers & Silents, or Radio was to the Greatest Generation's parents. Old movies knew they were glamorous.

    It just easier to make shit on the cheap and sell it now. It took a lot of money to just record shit when you were working with actual film, so you had to make your money count. Editing was also basically a whole different process than it is now. Instead of having a clear plan, modern technology lets people frick around and generally be worse off for it.

      >Instead of having a clear plan

      Chaplin would literally stop shooting and spend hours/days making new shit up if he thought what was written didn’t work. The making of movies has always involved ad hoc improvisation, hasty rewrites and reshoots and just making it up without a plan to some degree. Pretending it wasn’t just shows complete ignorance of history in ridiculous attempt to rewrite history in order to fabricate a weak excuse to b***h how you don’t like modern stuff.

    Same as all other industries, things used to be produced with attention being paid to the desires of the consumer, while everything made now is with the intent of telling the consumer what they should or shouldn't like.

    "Don't try to please people and do your own thing" was the worst advice we could have given to creatives, it's produced a culture of entitled babies that sincerely do not care about the people that pay for their product.

    >before digital cameras, film equipment and stock was VERY expensive and difficult to operate. This meant that everyone involved had to be skilled to make the most of what they had.

    >The studio system of Golden Age Hollywood was carefully managed and curated by studio heads and producers. Actors would also be trained in acting, singing, dancing, horseback riding, fencing, etc and if they underperformed, they'd be given the boot immediately. This declined sharply in the 50s and 60s as the studios were now run by out of touch geriatrics who kept making the same things over and over despite public's waning interest in that type of material.

    >New Hollywood, form the later 60s to late 70s, elevated the director as the 'true' author of the film (whereas Golden Age directors considered themselves nothing more than hired help). The influx of new blood, hungry and eager to prove themselves, experimented with cinema in new and novel ways, rejected various industry taboos and prejudices (such as the viability of gangster films) and drew heavily from European and Japanese cinema that had been running circles around Hollywood in the 60s. This was also when film was finally accepted as an art form in America.

    >The Commercial Era (I don't have a better description for it) from 80 to mid 2000s skewed heavily into blockbuster releases, with smaller genre films still being made in abundance. Less risky but nevertheless polished films rule the cinema. Cheaper equipment leads to developing independent scene.

    >Corporate Brainrot Era (late 2000s to now) is the product of lowering the skill ceiling for filmmaking, overreliance of post-production and focus testing the lowest, and I mean the LOWEST common denominator, rampant nepotism, failing upwards, bean counters instead of visionaries, entitlement and contempt for the public, massive corruption (Hollywood Accounting), overt ideological messaging, complete aversion to risk taking, etc, etc.
