Why the new stuff doesn't impress...
We were raised on the awe-inspiring and new-concept works of Spielberg, Lucas, and Kubrick. Carpenter and Zemekis added some horror and comedy, respectively, to that mix. But then we were slowly corrupted by the flash-bang of Bruckheimer, Cameron, and the Scott brothers. All of whom have done nice films. However, they've influenced a new batch of movie makers who've settled for more flash-banging than awe-inspiration. Abrams, Bay, Whedon and many more have opted for sensory-overloading FX than mind-blowing plots. Save for some indie films, one no longer has to think, "What does this mean?" The story is easy enough for a small child to understand. And thanks to an overwhelming amound of remakes and reboots one no longer has to wonder, "How is this story going to end?"
