I still think many movies succeed. For me, I want different things from different kinds of movies. I mean, I wouldn't go in seeing a "Scary Movie"
title expecting real horror...I'd expect slapstick humor. Likewise, I'm not expecting any real substance in "The Expendables", I'm expecting lots
of explosions, some 80's style one-liners, etc.
What really gets my goat though is when a movie is advertised as one thing, then is something else. Or worse, when a movie is just teased, and you
have no idea what it is going to be about. (personally, I never see such films until I at least have an idea, whether from reviews or other
As for seeing Avatar in 2D, that's like a cupcake without icing. I wasn't as blown away as others with it, but in 2D, it is unimpressive. In 3D,
it's MUCH better...(and looks less cartoony)....
For all the crap though, there are still some great ones that come out. The Lord of the Rings movies are great examples of what epic movies used to
be, for example. Those weren't too long ago. There have even been some good recent horror movies (by that, I mean the ones that are just plain
creepy, not hack and slash)...
