IMO, it doesn’t seem to matter whether a film is produced in Hollyweird or Britain or just about anywhere else (the sole possible exception being Hong Kong for a Jackie Chan flick!), they’re all pretty much crapola.
In addition, there is little imagination left in filmland. Where actual storytelling and acting used to occur, we now get either CG or gratuitous explosions, nudity and F-bombs. Re-makes of some of Hollyweird’s most notable and successful initial releases typically end up as massive flops because they are so badly done (and include too much of the aforementioned CG, gratuitous explosions, nudity and F-bombs).
I haven’t been to an over-priced movie multiplex in decades because of all of this and it appears that I am not missing anything. Movie night at my house generally involves running something from the 30s through the early 70s when movie makers knew how to tell a story and keep the audience involved.
So, I take great comfort in knowing that I am saving the $10 - $12 ticket price plus the overpriced concessions to be surrounded by rude people talking on their phones, receiving and sending texts, children playing throughout the movie multiplex so that I can walk out on a dreadful, dreck filled snorefest!
There are many excellent films made across the world. And we British still make fine films, thank you. Maybe America dosent (actually it does, despite the usual blockbuster rubbish), but we do.
The best films I have seen in recent years have been French, Swedish, Finnish, German, Brazilian, Japanese, Chinese, S African and Korean, as well as British, American and Irish.
