I was wondering if I am alone when it comes to movies. Every time I hear about a new comic movie adaption, sequel, prequel or remake it makes me roll my eyes. I know tons of people are excited to hear about comic movies and like to discuss which actor should play a role, but where are the people like me who are totally drained when it comes to movies?
Usually the plot of the movies are thin. Continuity is changed. They are ruled by special effects, which sell the movie, not the story. Some look really good, others really bad. Does anyone else miss the days when if they were going to show something in a movie blow up they actually had to blow something up?
Also the theater experience is just plain awful. The ticket prices go up every month and so do the refreshments. My TV looks better than the screen. My surround sound is louder. And I don't have to listen to peoples comments or telephone calls. On average, I would say I go see a movie in the theater once every two years. I think the last movie I saw was the Dark Knight, and it was OK. Before that I saw Revenge of the Sith and was totally disappointed with the theater experience.
I'm not trying to hate on anyone who loves the movies or gets excited to hear their favorite character is coming to the big screen. It just seems like it is really blowing up lately and I wanted to know if anyone else is as bored with it as I am.
