The silence of the Lambs
Being John Malkovich
Fuck I could be here all nigth but would be pointless, somebody will say
>lele you posted shit movies
Most of them are ok, but heavily overrated by people that were children during that time. Just compare that list to the best films of the 60's or the 70's and it won't look so great.
The period that the Lord of the Rings movies were coming out was awful. Not that those 3 are bad, but there was so little else coming out during that period. Basically >>64603097
>Le today cinema is bad xD meme
You should stop thinking superhero movies are representative of this period. Lots of good films are being released, it's you that should stop watching shit and go see those instead
But it is cherrypicking though.
It's not that the quality of good movies went down, it's just that the number of shit ones increased like fucking crazy. Studios began shitting out movies just because they knew people would see them, with no thought whatsoever behind them.
Except almost all of the movies he listed were made by studios. There always have been studio cash-grabs, and always will be, but during the 1990s and early 2000s they had to take more risks for various reasons. CG-I was becoming increasingly popular for tentpole features, but it didn't look nearly as realistic as it does now, so some movies had to use it in creative ways in order to sell the effects.
Also, it was the last decade were you could have a smash hit based off of star power or an exciting story, before franchise fatigue set in (thanks primarily to super-hero movies). There were still franchises, but generally they didn't make as much as the first, which is often the opposite scenario nowadays.
I mean, one of the biggest studio-released summer successes of 1999 was Eyes Wide Shut. Eyes Fucking Wide Shut! That would never be a hundred-million dollar grossing hit today, but only did so because it was the type of movie often made during this time. Big risks taken on innovative ideas, after the dark ages of genre-worship that was the 80s, and before the $250 mil budget messes that plague today (although I think independent and low-budget cinema is at its best right now).
You say anon was cherry-picking, but he didn't list 1 or 2 movies, he listed like 20.
This is an interesting way to look at it and I respect your opinion.
However, the sheer quantity of shit movies produced from 1990 to 2006 is just too much for me.
I guess a better way I could've phrased OP was "what period had the most shitty movies?"
