I realize that animation is a big part of a movie and nowadays animation is really good, but if you really think about it, if you take out the big explosions, epic fight music and animation, you've sometimes just got a shitty movie or TV show. Now, there are still some really good directors out there, but does anyone else agree that the entertainment industry is not trying as hard as it could? I mean, haven't seen a movie that I was astounded by since the Dark Knight...

Most of today's movies are incredibly generic and won't really be loved and remembered decades from now. Granted, the movie industry has a lot of competition with television and video games and just random screwing around on the internet, etc.
However, it's pretty obvious that instead of trying to make something great that might be a bit more niche, they would rather try to cater to every possible age and gender group, which leads to incredibly formulaic and generic movies. They overly rely on soulless CGI, abandoning practical effects that still get the job done today.
Few original screenplays are ever green lit. Just about everything coming out is based on another form of medium or it's just a remake or a sequel/prequel. As a horror fan, I've basically seen Hollywood remake the entire horror library from the 80s and about 95% of the remakes are worse than their originals.
All you read about now is how whenever something seems to be on a decent track, it gets completely tampered with by the studio and it's never for the better.
It's getting really bad.0
