  • movies from the 80's vs movies of today.

    So pretty much my sisters been showing her kid he's 8. movies from all eras. like she'll show him movies from the 80's and he loves them and asks for more and recent movies hold very little appeal apparently.

    my sister talked about it and it made me think of a few movies so i showed them to the girlfriend...

    and then i got to thinking..and he likes them more cause he see's theres no narrative in them. the new movies are all

    female > male
    black > white
    etc etc etc

    the old movies were just wholesome..

    and he see's that.

    it blew me away

    I've been thinking something similar about the new Death Wish Movie. I've only seen trailers, but I'm having a really hard time seeing Bruce Willis measuring up to ol' Charlie Bronson.

    I've been saying for awhile that it feels like the art of story-telling as a whole might be in decline.

      i think its because of the narratives. instead of just trying to tell a story they try to push their ideals.
      OR they are warped by their own ideals.

      look at star wars prime example.

      have you seen Dredd? its a fairly recent movie

        I was just watching "Coming to America" with Eddie Murphy last week. I was thinking, "there is no way they would make this movie today"

          Haven't seen Dredd.

          Not a huge fan of the new Star Wars movies. Partly because they go out of their way to pander to nostalgia. Force Awakens felt so formulaic.
