Is it safe to assume that the movie industry is dying because the new films being produced have awful names and the story lines of these movies are banal and plain?
It depends what you consider "dying." From a cultural standpoint
American viewers are only exposing themselves to the same crap that
the movie industries put out because it reaches the widest possible
audience. However the aesthetics and quality of the films
themselves are unbelievable. Soundtracks, lighting, editing, sets,
costume, all amazing. The richness and depth to story lines is not
comparable to independent and foreign films though. Of course this
is a generalization, but to answer your question, in some ways yes
depends how you look at it.
