Why do the movies in our theaters today suck so badly?
Let me tell you why. It’s because years ago, even though not everyone was a believer, there was such a thing in America called respect for God, and respect for Christian culture and values. We no longer have that.
What we have now is people willing to do anything for money and absolutely zero concern for quality storytelling. We almost never see great movies on the big screen anymore.
The big screen shows you what our big values are and our big values are a big value popcorn and big money. That’s it. That’s all. Nothing more. Because of this we have drug addicted actors by the dozens and I think they know that the drivel they’re putting out has no socially redeeming value.
It has no transcendent meaning, no meaningful archetypes, no sustenance for the soul in drama and art.
I read an article in the January 2016 New Yorker and it dealt with a Hollywood movie producer and the fact that these producers, who literally make $10 million a year, literally cannot approve a good movie because they don’t sell to the general public.
Now I know that the general public to some degree reads the Bible and back in the day Shakespeare was popular, but today, people, grown adults, only get immersed in superheroes.
