ITT: If I don't like a bunch of random movies from a random time period, that automatically makes it a Dark Age. Because just because I don't like a movie, that automatically makes it bad.

Crap like Howard the Duck, the Garbage Pail Kids movie, and the 80's Punisher film make the 80's a pretty dark time for movies.
With great responsibility comes great power.

Every f***ing decade will have more than their fair share of bad movies. Even the 'golden ages' had a ton of s*** movies but what happens is the further back you go the harder it is to remember the trash.

To call the late 90s the "Dark Age of Movies" is kind of dumb. Sure, there weren't a lot of big-budget action movies that were good, but that ignores all the movies that didn't need CGI to tell a good story.

To call this decade a dark age of movies is straight up dumb. There are more bad movies out because there are more movies out than ever before. When you only focus on the failures, of course it's going to look bad.
I started thinking, "Maybe the two of us should blow up this house." You know, just to get back at them for thinking I might blow up this house.

Well this decade also sees some of the laziest movies ever, I mean they are remaking and rebooting nearly everything. When you see so many paint by number remakes or reboots it becomes very monotonous. It also doesn't help that a lot of people aren't getting off their asses to watch innovative and interesting movies like Snowpiercer or Ex Machnia. They will show up and watch movies like Alvin and Chipmunks 2 though which is just great!
