Default Box office is finished

Not one good blockbuster I saw this year in theatres except edge of tomorrow. I think part of the problem is that aren't good directors like Tony Scott who could make a great popcorn film that everyone could enjoy. These days movie directors go for too much in terms of either special effects or trying too hard to be deep and forgetting that the audiences just wanna have some fun. Who cares about these critics who bash films if they're not oscar material? They don't care about you/me, they just wanna give movies that cover serious topics as great. It's BS quite frankly.

Notice how action movies these days or any big summer blockbuster is 2 hours long, earlier it used to be 90-100 mins. Nice taut thrillers that were engaging and everyone could sit back n enjoy. What happened?

Also notice how TV shows are more interesting than movies these days. Game of Thrones, Homeland, Suits etc are more interesting and engaging than a 2 hour crapfest. Why is this happening and when will movies be simply fun to watch again? You know action films like Enemy of the state/ Crimson Tide/Independence day?

Forget about Hollywood, it's nothing compared to Bollywood. Plus you are lucky to be Indian and have a full understanding of those masterpieces.

The raw power of Bollywood overwhelms any aesthetic.

On topic, why do you feel there aren't any good "popcorn directors" left? Why discount Chris Columbus, Micheal Bay, Wolfgang Petersen, Joss Whedon, John Woo(though the last two are actually good storytellers). And then there's another league of Chris Nolan, Peter Jackson, Micheal Mann, David Fincher, Spielberg, DePalma, Scorsese, all great storytellers capable of blockbuster entertainment.

Watch Lucy then, it's short, fun and even it did very well at the box office. Same goes for John Wick as I've understood, though I have yet to watch it. Also The Expendables last summer, The Equalizer should be good too, and so on.

Maybe you are just growing up and need to move on to movies for grown ups.

I hate how everything is PG these days. The new Terminator is going to be a PG-13. Ridiculous.

Just cause the movie is shitty doesn't mean it won't make a lot in the box office

It's going to be garbage anyway, being slightly more violent wouldn't change much.
