Reminder that Spielberg and Lucas ended the New Hollywood period and brought on the blockbuster era through flicks like Jaws and Star Wars. They are by the far the worst thing that ever happened to the history of cinema.


uh, wouldn't they have started the new hollywood period if it's still going on though???



Doesn't New Hollywood distinguish the Golden Age of Hollywood and the 50's / 60's movies?


Hollywood is completely shit since the boom of flick glamorizing divorce


>They're bad becaue they're successful



New Hollywood covers the period after the original Rating Code fell apart. Think around 1967-1980. During that time many directors were given carte Blanche by the studios to make “arty” money-makers like Easy Rider, The Night of the Living Dead, and Bonnie and Clyde.

It all came to a screeching halt with Michael Cimino’s Heaven’ Gate in 1980 which was a financial disaster. But an alright flick. The cracks were already in place with Spielberg’s Jaws in ‘76, and Cuck Wars in ‘77 just took a few years to get the ball rolling.

The 80’s is the time of “high-concept” movies. Top Gun, The Terminator, Back to the Future

>from Boomer snoozefests like Easy Rider to Terminator and Back to the Future

So nothing of value was lost?



>Easy Rider, The Night of the Living Dead, and Bonnie and Clyde

All of those are shit.


Remember Heather O'Rourke.

But the "Golden Age" was crap.

>muh westerns



But Lucas never even did anything other than Star Wars



Night of the Living Dead is a great movie.



Poor girl.



It's empty dumb horror and what it spawned is not worth what it gave.

Zombie kino outweights zombie cancer. tbh.



westerns > soy wars

prove me wrong



Zombie movies are neither frequent enough nor consistently bad enough to justify crying about what NOTLD "spawned".

They did way worse things than destroying cinema…


You can't blame Lucas for what other people did with his techniques. It's not his fault Hollywood copied all the wrong elements of his films.




Horror is the lowest form of movie.



Learned that first day in (((film school)))?



>dumb horror

Oh. You don't like scary movies. I get it.



Westerns had somewhat better values (other than the ones that were crypto communist propaganda), but none had their own universe. Space operas as a genre are far superior to Westerns.


dupeverything btfo



They also ended in the assholes of underage kids so go-figure.

The movie was called STAR Wars. It had a Death STAR in it…do you think that was a coincidence?


commercial films were always trash

independent and arthouse kino doesn't exist

There's another problem and it's not hollywood being shit.



Stories that get bogged down in excessive lore are invariably autistbait trash. Movies without their own shitty made up universes are free to explore their characters and lay out well-constructed stories.



Firstly, that's wrong, faggot. Secondly, lots of zombie movies aren't horror.

Stake Land is about vampires nigger.






Yeah the "vampires" were definitely just zombies under a different name. Making them vampires was really dumb, it would've made a great zombie movie otherwise.



Considering you can count the number of zombie flicks, or any fiction for that matter, that actual take the primary element of the Romero universe into account on a single disfigured hand I'd be willing to say it didn't really spawn jack shit.



>that actual take the primary element of the Romero universe into account

Oh yes, the biting social commentary. What would we do eithout some faggot with a camera to tell us we're consumers.





>all these mad horrorfags

It's the most self indulgent fetish of all to watch garbage movies with fake blood and then start delivering impassioned speeches about how the movie has such get camera work, or such great themes, or whatever other shit you want to say about some dogshit nonsense.



I don't need to deliver an impassioned speech. You are a homosexual, simple as that.

>independent and arthouse kino doesn't exist



If horrorkino doesn't exist then what the fuck are these?



If you actually watched them you'd know that's not what I'm referring to.



>It's the most self indulgent fetish of all

No that would be to watch garbage ecelebs with youtube channels and then start delivering impassioned speeches about how they have such insightful thoughts, or such radical ideas, or whatever other shit you want to say about some dogshit nonsense.



What happened?



holy shit finally someone that gets it

Spielberg and Lucas ruined kino forever
