man, movies are so bad now. i don’t even think i’m being reductive by saying that. i was looking at all the new movies i’ve watched in the last decade and could name probably like fifteen that were truly any good, and even then . . .
as brother mccune put it: they went and killed something we love dearly. it’s just true. they have been putting out so much trash for the last 10-15 years that it has pulverized our collective brains into cereal dust. the bar has been set so low that you could skydive off a snake’s dick. all you have to do to make a quote-unquote art film anymore is to not put a superhero in it, which is miserable. and yet STILL everything feels like a disney / marvel movie, even if it isn’t. what a sadness.
