Hollywood makes crappy movies.

Most are remakes/retreads.

No one wants to spend $15 for a movie ticket.

No one wants to spend $12 for a small coke and small
popcorn that cost the theater 75 cents to make.

No one wants to spend 20 minutes plus sitting through
commercials and promos before the movie even starts.

No one wants to watch a movie that is 80% CGI, has crappy
acting and no plot.

Of late, many big stars threatened to go on strike
indefinitely because Trump was elected.

Never dawned on them that most of the other several
hundred (thousand?) people in the credits depend on them
for paycheck-to-paycheck survival.

Some of those low-credits people might just realize that
a RED camera doesn't cost all that much after all...

I have hundreds of Blu-rays and DVDs of movies and TV
shows, very few of which were made in recent years. I had
a 3-month free preview of several movie channels when I
switched to DISH Network and the start of thew year
(Starz, Showtime, Cinemax, et al); and I never saw
anything worth watching. The last full-length movie I
watched was The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, a type of
movie that today's movie industry could never pull off
(at best they'd do a flaccid remake). The manliness of
the John Wayne character would be impossible to achieve
amongst the current crop of Hollywood dandies. The only
channel I watch regularly is TCM. The next movie my wife
and I intend to go to is the TCM presentation of
Hitchcock's North by Northwest. Hollywood jumped the
shark decades ago.

You just can't call them movies in the same way if they are displayed on
giant television screens. Silent movies were probably displayed better
than movies are now.
And finite technology brings its habits. Dark images, photography over
cinematography, letterboxing instead of widescreen, shitty camera
shooting methods, CGI replacing production design, bad dialogue sound,
fuzzy narratives, cheap looking movies.

I watched Vanishing Point (1971) for the first time last night.
Pondering again that period of cinema. Like how does a movie like Easy
Rider become a classic and also a success if I'm not wrong? It must be
something about what is put in the film, not just trying to make good
cinema by habits.

Maybe the problem with me is that I just don't care about anyone's ideas
nowadays.
