I feel like the standard for 'good' has certainly been lowered, but there are still a lot of great movies out there, you just have to find them.

The new Sherlock Holmes is extremely good.
This movie sucked!

The one from 2009 was like ten times better man, wake up!

I love the first one slightly more than the second, but to say that the second sucked is ridiculous.

I think movies are certainly changing, but not for the worst. It's harder to find original plots nowadays, so they're starting to adapt comics and books and whatnot into movies, which I guess could be a good or bad thing depending on your opinion. I myself think it's awesome, especially when the adaption is well executed like Sherlock Holmes and the Marvel movies.

It seems to me that movies are getting crappier by the day. Looks like they're running out of ideas.

Why don't you stop watching shit TV and films?

Actually, Blair Witch Project was pretty good. It defined a new movie genre kind of. But despite that, it was still pretty good.

Compared to films that I consider good, the answer is a biased yes.

Now, from a cinematic idiots point of view, they apparently are alright.

2011 was an incredible year for films. Drive, The Guard, Kill List, Attack the Block, Tyrannosaur, Meek's Cutoff, The Troll Hunter, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, the list goes one.

It's your own fault if you only watch the same shite that Hollywood puts out every year.

No, I don't think that movies suck nowadays. I think that they're rather good, like Avatar, and movies like that.
This movie won't suck at all. It looks very good. :) It's got great graphics and everything.

I think the problem is with movies today is that they aren't original anymore and many worthwhile movies this past decade has been remakes, reboots or sequels. The 20th century had all the ideas whereas our day has all the special effects. People see a movie and decide that it's crap because it's not a 100% original film and yearn for something they have never seen before.

You also got to think, after thousands of years worth of story telling and a century of cinema we'd be out of originals sooner or later, wouldn't we?

you watched that bloody south park episode didnt you its a crap one and no... movies really do suck now and tv shows are heading rapidly in the same direction. thats why you have to go and buy (in other words steal) movies that are a bit older becuase they dont suck as much.

I really want to see that but i'm not positive I can go see a movie called "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn" with my dignity intact.
