I've been spending a bit of time updating my media collection recently, and getting it all organised.
I'm sort of coming to the horrible conclusion that films are just sort of...getting worse? When I sort the collection I have by year I have an unbroken list from 1977 through to 2022. The first couple of years are sparse, but from 1984 onwards its incredibly hard to pick a "Movie of the Year"...and about 2010 the list gets sparse again. Is it complete coincidence that this is when the Marvel stuff was really kicking off?
Or am I just getting old? It's also noticeable that more and more films are re-working old IP's, or sequels.
I actually couldn't pick a film for 2020, thoguh i have not yet watched the new Bill & Ted, I've heard bad things...
