Movies these days are going in another direction and to be honest I don’t like any of the movies that came out this year. There were some exceptions, but most of them were a total disappointment.
That’s why I’m watching older movies again so that I can get a sense of what happened in Hollywood few years ago.
I don’t know if I feel like this because all the older movie stars are not shooting movies anymore or the industry doesn’t know what story to make.
It’s like waiting something to happen through the whole movie and that something never comes. I hate those movies that are getting me stuck in front of the TV for an hour and a half for nothing.
The more movies I watch the more TV Series I love.
We have some facts here that you definitely didn’t know which could make you give movies one more chance to prove they worth it.
