Do you find movies of today to be just as good as movies from the 80s and 90s?

    TV is MURDERING movies for the most part, in my opinion. And yes, I have been watching some of these movies with the set pieces, and the effort seems to have been a lot higher than back then, even if the plot didnt age well.
    Was watching Casper, and the effects in that movie hold up very well, and the house was a great set piece

    The look and "feel" of movies often took you to another world in the 80s and 90s, but I rarely get that feeling from newer movies.

    Sometimes I think maybe cgi has made movie makers lazy.

    Yeah @el_oh_el mentioned set pieces like the house in Casper. If Casper was done today that house would have completely cgi. Practical effects are just as important

    Depends on what you are watching. Superhero movies are ten times better than they were back then. As for the rest, though, no :scust:. But part of the reason is that with the advance of large flat screen TVs and huge cable/streaming service show budgets, TV has turned into the better medium to tell complex stories. The only reason to go to the movies is to see spectacular special effects on a huge screen. And with the amount of money necessary to finance those, movie studies are only financing movies guaranteed to provide a return on investment. That's why all we her are franchises.

    Nope. All remakes and reboots.

    Good movies are out there but the magic is gone.

    I haven't felt 'magic' in a non superhero movie experience since the year mad max and interstellar dropped

    It's hard to recreate the feeling people had when they first saw a classic. Look at the new lion king. It's word for word pretty much but don't have the magic. Show kids the cartoon and they'll love it like we did.

    There were a lot of new ideas in the 80s and 90s some good most bad but even some of the bad ones were entertaining. People are afraid to be different when it comes to movies now. Afraid to try anything new story wise. Only a few dare and are pretty sucessful at it.

    And the digital film doesn't seem as real. Everything seems distant and shooting on location also seems to be rare since cgi can recreate almost everything.
