Dustin Hoffman: Cinema is 'worst' it has been in 50 years, but television is the best that's it ever been   Peterlee on Jul 06, 09:13

these people saying things like "worst" or "impossible" are getting tiresome. inside out, mad max, been a good year   islander on Jul 06, 09:37

people are just lazy. Good movies are always out there, you just have to look for them. {nm}   Moviesnob on Jul 06, 09:52

Yeah, that Hoffman guy is a lazy tool. {nm}   goodvibe61 on Jul 06, 09:54

the link isnt accurate, but he's likely coming from a place where crappy movies he wants made arent getting made {nm}   Moviesnob on Jul 06, 10:09

No, just another cranky old man that thinks everything was better in the good old days. {nm}   Antibody on Jul 06, 10:51

qualitatively, it's undeniable   slipping jimmy on Jul 06, 10:56

There are lots of schlocky westerns, swords and sandals, horror films back then too. They're rarely seen on TV   Antibody on Jul 06, 11:04

just as a single data point analysis, compare the top 25 films of 1967 (the year of The Graduate) with 2007 (the year of . . . Transformers)   slipping jimmy on Jul 06, 11:16

"cinema" is more than studio filmmaking. I'd stack up my top 10 this year and last against any other year except 1974   Moviesnob on Jul 06, 11:19

yes, you can always find outliers in any year that are the exception to the rule. the difference is quality (or at least a general   slipping jimmy on Jul 06, 11:23

but I'm saying the quality this year is as good as any other year. If you dont think that, you aren't watching enough movies.    Moviesnob on Jul 06, 11:28

not just the money in TV but also the (relative) creative control   slipping jimmy on Jul 06, 11:34

IMO that's a reflection of modern moviegoing taste, and not on the overall quality of cinema. {nm}   Antibody on Jul 06, 12:23

sure, there have always been good movies, even when Hollywood has been at its worst. that's no excuse for not trying to make the other 90%   slipping jimmy on Jul 06, 10:07

I quote Bad Santa. "Well, they all cant be winners, can they?"   Moviesnob on Jul 06, 10:13

50 years ago , hollywood made beast of yucca flats and manos hand of fate. they havent been trying to make the 90% better since ever {nm}   islander on Jul 06, 10:15

actually, briefly, at the end of the studio system they did   slipping jimmy on Jul 06, 10:18

Movies come out every week. You list 2 good movies over the whole year, and say "it's been a good year" lol.    goodvibe61 on Jul 06, 09:53

theres been good and bad films every year since the invention of film and i doubt the ratio is any better or worse now than its ever been {nm}   islander on Jul 06, 10:07

i'd wager that the ratio is worse now. The technology to make a movie is so much more affordable now than ever. {nm}   adrenalin112 on Jul 06, 12:34

i'd agree that the ratio is worse. {nm}   Moviesnob on Jul 06, 12:47

Therefore, "inside Out" will never become the highest grossing film ever that never hit #1 {nm}   Peterlee on Jul 06, 07:49

If this bears out, there is a little irony in the timing: NMIND would win #1 for the weekend on the day it would have passed MBFGW for. . .   second gary on Jul 06, 07:53

This had nothing to do with Schumer. Why go to Apatow? This is totally taken out of context. The media is horrible {nm}   goodvibe61 on Jul 06, 10:08

I think he mentioned Apatow becayse he has used beautiful funny women in movies. just look at KHEIG {nm}   Dorfman on Jul 06, 10:33

Minions had the biggest opening day of all time for an animated film in Germany, Spain, Argentina and Colombia.    notfabio on Jul 05, 15:29

$33M for an OW is still pretty good, but a 67%+ drop the following weekend, which was also a holiday weekend is horrible {nm}   lobogotti on Jul 05, 14:33

XXL audience was 96% female the first film was around 76 I think {nm}   notfabio on Jul 05, 12:51

whoa nilephan was right! is that a record? {nm}   Moviesnob on Jul 05, 12:55

It has to be, I have never seen a breakdown in the 90 percentile range, ever, male or female. {nm}   notfabio on Jul 05, 13:00

Sex and the city wasn't even that high? {nm}   tealfan on Jul 05, 14:15

It was 85% for the first one which probably was the previous record holder unless the sequel was even more {nm}   notfabio on Jul 05, 14:52

Good call, the previous highest female audience percentage was Sex and the City 2 with 90% female {nm}   notfabio on Jul 05, 14:53

The previews looked like a an advertisement for chippendales. Not surprised. {nm}   Hersheybar on Jul 06, 05:59
