Why are so many movies based on bullshit?

Recommended Posts

Maybe I'm being over critical but it seems to me that too many modern movies are based on fallacious premises.

Prime examples would be  "Inside man", "John Wick", "Gangster Squad",  etc etc.

Nine times out of ten the plot soon dissolves into a diaspora  of gunfire and bloodshed, and in some cases a plethora of CG enhanced special effects, all designed to disguise the absence of any kind of script or story.

Imo Hairy, so many are as how you describe because there is a market for it. Prime example....Death  Wish remake starring Bruce Willis...I enjoyed it you were not impressed due to, again imo, looking too deep into Willis' occupation as a Doctor & found it hard to believe that he would act as he did. Also, if all fact based films were based upon the actual chronological factual happenings it would/could take too long and probably send people to sleep......An example of an exception....Serpico starring a young Al Pacino....great film based on his NY Police career......film is not too long and doesn't deviate from the book although having read the book it obviously has to omit a good percentage of it.  Now I don't mind a slow film whether fact or fiction as long as I can identify with the basis of it.

Bottom line is...............Some people just love shite.....:flashing-lol:

 

PS....If you're looking for a slow fact based film that I think you may enjoy....try and watch The Onion Field.....or even read the book (by Joseph Wambaugh)....a very long and in depth story about.....well google it and decide.
