So, what did /tv/ think of the year when cinema died?
I watched jurassic world multiple times and my brain really didnt know why..
>tfw 2015 was the year i let my dick choose the movie
Blame the rest of the world, especially China. Minions and Fast 7 made 70% of their box office internationally.
Parents these days religiously take their kids to the movies. When I was growing up, it was kind of a rare treat, nowadays parents just do it to kill three hours of time their kids are awake.
I think more people see movies these days because they don't want to be left out of all the shit they see on social media. Like people just had to see Jurassic World just to see it, even though in a vacuum, they probably wouldn't choose to see based on its objective value. The Force Awakens is like that, too. People almost see it to get it out of the way.
Why is it any worse than last year?
I suppose the numbers are higher
I agree wholeheartedly on the point about people only seeing it to not be left out of the crowd. It's a waste of time to watch all the shit that's out there now, but talking about movies and shows are now the crutch to actually having a conversation with someone
