I think it's important to know that movies are primarily a director's art and television is a writer's art. The benefit of these studios simply recycling unoriginal comics and remakes is that they 1) don't need great writers, so 2) they aren't paying for great writers.

As a result, a lot of the writers have gone to television. AMC, HBO, and Showtime have been benefiting from this. Even Quentin Tarantino has stated that he could see himself retiring from Hollywood (in disgust for what it has become) and writing seven-hour miniseries for HBO and just going that route; he already has all of the money he'll ever need and is a die-hard film maker who cares solely about the product.

My point is, there is a reason we are in the heyday of television right now. TV has never been better and a part of that is thanks to Hollywood's drive for profit over art, more artists have simply gone to television and I love it.

To be totally honest with you, I haven't gotten out to see many. I mostly wait six months and get the torrent. haha

I will be going to see Lincoln, Django Unchained, and The Hobbit though. Those are guaranteed A+ movies. Argo, Looper, and The Master I have heard nothing but great things.

I'm a drama guy, and generally don't care for the action, but have heard great things about Skyfall and The Avengers. I am in the minority in that I didn't like The Dark Knights Rises at all, after absolutely loving The Dark Knight. Moonrise Kingdom isn't my cup of tea but I enjoyed it; Wes Anderson isn't one of my favorites.

I think I remember reading about how revenue goes up for movies during recessions, because families are taking fewer vacations and are spending their disposable income in theaters. I wonder if production companies are putting out more movies as a result.

Hobbit.... ugh... you can't possibly tell me that movie will add anything new to that series... I saw all it could show me in the first hour of the first movie... just don't get it I guess.

Any chance of an Aquaman movie? This would be a good time to introduce a gay hero in society.

Wait... so you come here complaining that Hollywood doesn't make movies with any substance. Then when they do (Argo, Lincoln), you don't go see them? That's exactly the problem. If you are not willing to support good quality movies, don't complain when they make ****.

Green Lantern is gay. Didn't you hear? It was pretty big news early this year.

I have an eight month old at home so going to the movies at all this year has been hard... typically, I rush to see movies like that...
