I am sooo sick of cookie cutter movies that are so perverted!?

I swear that I am not simply looking for something to complain about,but why do movies have to all be the same?Nowadays almost every plot seems to be the same and they are all intensely sexual and violent.What happened to things like whit and romance?Don't get me wrong,some movies these days are ok and there are even a couple that I like, but why do they all seem to scream pop culture?

    Hollywood panders to the lowest common denominator. It wasn't always like that. But it is now.

    I am an old school movie goer. Friday night was dedicated to seeing the new movie...and every Friday night I went, like clockwork. Think I went to four movies in 2010 and three in 2011.

    When I want wit and romance...I go back in time.

    Bogart and Bacall in To have and Have not, The Big Sleep, The Thin Man series, and other movies like

    Here Comes Mr. Jordan

    Spellbound

    Gaslight

    Rebecca

    The Ghost and Mrs. Muir

    Casablanca

    Now Voyager

    Dark Victory

    Lost Horizon

    The Fountainhead

    Meet John Doe

    Double Indemnity

    The Third Man

    Witness for the Prosecution

    Madame X

    The Postman Always Rings Twice

    Imitation of Life

    North by Northwest and most of the rest of the Hitchcock library.

    Wuthering Heights

    Don't be too dismayed at the drek passing for movies nowadays. Take a trip back in time...when movies were movies....

    Hollywood. Money. Shock value.........IF a movie is too mild, some filmakers will interject trashy scenes and language just to get that R rating. That's what sells.......
