Everyone has their own flavor-but I feel the same way about almost every movie made after 2000.
I wish that movie makers would stop remaking/ruining older movies.
Maybe if they spent 500 million on a 6 hr zombie movie(new-not a remake)-they will get my interest.
With rare exception, the people who decide which films get made are not filmmakers. Thirty-year-old MBAs make the financing decisions and their tastes are reflected. They tend to think if X-type film made lots of money last year, five more clones of X-type film will make even more money. They're often wrong, get fired, and replaced by other 30-year-old MBAs who have no knowledge of the history of film and don't regard it as an art form.

Movies used to tell us what the future might end up being like such as war of the world. Now we just get mostly Comic book movies and teen movie like hungar game and twilight. I went back to watch 90's action movies and compare to todays they all seem to be a joke. Most of them being Crappy American propaganda film like Red Dawn, White House down. What the hell happened to movies like Commando, Aliens, and all those non-pro American films? Even comedy movies are getting worst, they are not as funny as the past ones. Lots of movies are coming from books instead of actually written unlike the past movies. Even Jurassic World movie starting to look like a joke. The new Star Wars movie looks unbelievable like the older Star Wars. Probably because all the CGI now a days. What happened to all the historical war movies? The only recent one is Fury, even medievil is missing out and being replace by fantasy such as Lord of the Rings.
