What happened to movies????
Look, by no means am I an expert of movies but I do see a lot of them and I love horror films. What happened to horror films? The 70's had some good ones..then the 80's put out fun horror and not so great slasher movies but there was something campy and fun about them. Then SCREAM came out and made horror fun again.....
Then movies started coming out like THE GRUDGE and THE RING....and they were crap. They were like a stretched out Marilyn Manson video.
The film speeding up and slowing down and all the kids with their mouth wide open and the sucky, predictable jump parts all started to seem like a formula that all the movie companies were using. They were all overblown MTV videos.
Here is my take. They get some pretty people, one from each race, and of course make the girl the lead, write a quick lame story with no real ending or plot, write a horrible script and sometimes get a bunch of big bands together and make a soundtrack and here's the big one, they get the best song and make a trailer showing the best parts, best effects, and they give u a trailer that is nothing more than a music video and the trailer is so hyped that the movie looks great, everyone runs to the movie opening weekend, it kills in the box office and by the 3rd week they made their money back and they don't care anymore...its a brilliant way to make money.
But thats all its about...we don't want videos, we want movies with good stories, and good characters....stop letting music video directors do movies and get real movie directors in....I am tired of paying $10.00 to watch crap...
This movie sucked...I enjoyed the trailer more...
