What has happened to good movies?
They have been in hiding for most of 2010
I love movies, I have been a member of netflix for years and I used to love to go to the movies nearly every weekend, but I have noticed that in the last few years Hollywood has not been putting out many quality films, I don't know why, is it because people are finding other things to do and the big movies studios don't do as many feature films as in the years past?
The best I can recall I went to see 2 movies in the theaters in the past 5 years or so, I saw Avatar, and Batman -The Dark Knight, I did enjoy both of those movies and I own them in my DVD collection, maybe that is what has happened, perhaps DVDs have had an effect on Hollywood's feature films, I have noticed a lot of movies will not even come out in theaters and just go straight to DVD,
I was really looking forward to going to see IronMan 2 this last week but everyone who has seen it told me I would be better off to wait till it comes out on DVD and that it wasen't as good as the original IronMan, also have you noticed how expensive it is to even get a coke and popcorn at the movies, when I went to see Avatar it was $12.00 US just for a popcorn and a coke maybe that is why Hollywood isn't making good quality movies anymore.
Anyway maybe some of you readers can tell me why have Hollywood films gotten so bad in the last few years, is it the writers, that there is nothing original to make a film about or just cutbacks because of the economy in the USA?
Like I said earlier I have been streaming movies to my TV from netflix and I have found some great documentary films as of late, they are way better than most Hollywood feauture films and I do plan to write a detailed hub at some point in the future and share with you some of these films that I think are must see movies, please note that I have never been a big fan of documentary films or reality TV until I got into streaming movies to my TV thru my blu ray player and it has made a fan out of me on these genres of movies.
Anyway thank you for taking your time and reading this hub maybe some of you will give me some feedback on what is going on in Hollywood in the comments below.
