I know. There are way more than 10 reasons you can’t stand mainstream cinema. From the annoying tween behind you texting her Bff who’s sitting right next to her to the parents who thought it was a good idea to bring their nap-deprived toddler to the theaters, it’s hard enough to enjoy a movie. Add in the overpriced hot dogs and bloating ticket prices, it’s almost a sure thing that regardless of how good the movie is, your cinematic experience will be less than stellar. But mainstream cinema starts foremost with the quality of Hollywood films and this is where the bulk of our problems lie.

In 2002, 475 films were released and that number has steadily increased over the years reaching a peak of 638 in 2008 while stabling around 600 films more or less annually during the past few years. In 2011, 610 films were released. Why do the number of films released every year matter? »
