Not just trash talking but many movies today don't have a semblance of a story. More just a series of events. One reason I don't go to see super hero movies which IMO, are just basically a video game on a big screen. What Martin Scorsese referred to as an amusement park ride. Mindless junk that can't keep my attention. I've dozed off multiple times in a theater.

I tend to gravitate toward independent movies. Those which most moviegoers likely don't even know exist. My favorite last year being CODA, which I told everyone was going to win the Oscar for best picture. And when it did win, I doubt most had any idea about the film in the first place. Was just fortunate to catch an Apple TV screening in a theater with an actual audience, though quickly disappeared relegating it to online streaming. Though still powerful.

Some movies are ideally suited to be first experienced in a theater. Denis Villeneuve's DUNE was a perfect example. You couldn't appreciate the full impact of the movie from online streaming that you could from IMAX Laser or Dolby Cinema presentation - saw it 4 times in theater. Kept my attention for all 2hrs 40mins+. AMPAS members must have also highly regarded the movie, as it won more Oscars than any other last year. Though 'Denis Villeneuve', one of my favorite current filmmakers, was conspicuously not nominated. Neither was CODA's Sian Heder. Oscar voters must have mistakenly thought these movies directed themselves? [emoticon]
