    Do you believe that songs/movies 10 years ago were far more better from now?  and why?

    In my opinion, it is pretty hard to find songs or movies that are worse than they were 10 years ago in 2004. Society became more cynical and introspective after 2004 and the low art forms (film and songs) reflected that cynicism. As a result, films in 2014 are certainly a little more cerebral than they were in 2004. In my mind, this makes them better. Certain political realities that emerged in the middle of the previous decade gave rise to a number of influential documentaries that have affected some people's lives and informed many more. Another difference between 2014 and 2004 is that independent films and songs are now more accessible to the public through online streaming companies. This has caused a surge in indie film and indie music and we are treated to some more-pure (sometimes good, sometimes bad) art forms that are less commercialized.

    Not really. Every era produces some good/great movies and a lot of stinkers too. When you get right down to it movies, books, and music are like beauty. It's all in the eye of the beholder.

    i think you have to go back even further really. like pre 90's for the most part. once music became digital and any could make even the worst musicians sound good, it no longer required talent or hard work. honestly other than looks, i dont know what makes todays artist famous. the muic is terrible. there are still a lot of good movies however. i think a lot of them depend way too much on CGI, and the story and acting gets forgotten. but not all the time.
