Where did all the (entertaining) movies go?

This question has been on my mind lately, what happened to all the entertaining movies?

Seems like every movie released from year 2000 and onward has to have a child with a terminal disease (or three), a person questioning his/hers existence (or better yet, their sexuality) or be flooded with terrible CGI. This is just so depressing…

I never did understand the purpose of depressing movies, do people actually live so happy lives they need a counterbalance? Or are they so bound to everyday life that they need a movie to remind them about life. Personally, I’m thankful for my life and health everyday, my thoughts also go out to struggling families and people all over the world on a daily basis.

To be honest, I pity people who need a reminder about all the horrible things in life, I really do.

Why is it today, that every movie needs a political agenda, an opinion or let’s be frank; to be a propaganda vessel for some cause? Take your god damn causes and shove them, I watch movies for entertainment, not to be told how to think. If I wanted a 1½-2 hour propaganda broadcast I’d just watch the swedish public service channels for an equal amount of time.

Propaganda movies might be all the rage in Hollywood but I’m not sure it is as appreciated in the living room…

And lose the crap CGI. you’re just making fools of yourselves. CGI blood even? I didn’t realise there was a shortage of fresh blood with all the slaughter houses but whatever…
