Default Your Least favorite film decade?

What decade do you think produced some of the laziest or lousiest films?

Each decade produced lousy films, but for me the 2010s come out at the top. I think by now you know the reasons why I think they are lousy.

This one.

Unfortunately probably to be topped by the next one.

Movies today fall into three general categories:

1) Mindless action movies

2) Male bashing comedies

3) General Hollywood left wing propaganda

Boy, you really have your finger on the pulse of Hollywood! 15 off the top of my head from the last 3 years:

Finding Dory (none of the above)
The Jungle Book (none of the above)
Star Trek Beyond (none of the above)
Jason Bourne (none of the above)
Creed (none of the above)
Ex Machina (none of the above)
The Martian (none of the above)
The Revenant (none of the above)
Noah (none of the above)
Exodus: Gods and Kings (none of the above)
The Theory of Everything (none of the above)
American Sniper (none of the above)
Unbroken (none of the above)
Lincoln (none of the above)
Argo (none of the above)

So, ummm, yeah...wrong as usual.

These are the only movies on that list that I have seen. Lincoln is definitely "Hollywood left wing propaganda". Spielberg altered the historical record to change the vote of the Connecticut delegation, which voted unanimously for the 13th Amendment abolishing slavery, to a split vote, which necessarily impugned the characters of at least two congressmen, for the bizarre purpose of trying to overstate the support slavery had in the North. It goes along with similar inaccuracies in movies such as ""42," which always reflect the determination that no matter how harsh the story being told, the America as presented by Hollywood can always be made to look worser. [Note: as you might expect, the controversy has been scrubbed from the Wikipedia page about the movie.]

I don't recall Argo that much, but it seems that sorting truth from fiction there is pretty much futile.

"worser"? Wow. Did you drop out of elementary school?

Hard to take anything you say seriously when you use a word like "worser." And you don't even remember Argo, even though you watched it? Are you senile?

Could we please keep the childish bickering outside of the Movie section.

Oh No

I must say the 2000's and beyond...

Nothing but sequels, remakes, and nothing original!
