I didn't like this movie and it is apparently highly rated. This bugs me a little. I feel like either ( a ) people have no taste anymore ( b ) the high ratings are manufactured ( c ) I'm old
I don't accept ( c ) as I've almost always disliked movies with huge issues. ( b ) is possible and if true I feel like there's a secondary problem which is that people don't think for themselves. They see it's considered good and want to feel cool/hip/in the know so they go along with the crowd. This is for example how I feel about many SF restaurants whose food is not that great but people want to say "I went to hipster restaurant XYZ and I'm cool because I like it too". Yes I realize they might actually like it. Whether that's because they haven't had better or because it matches their taste and not mine is another issue.
Then there's ( a ). I tend to believe ( a ) or maybe people never had taste haha. I guess I want to believe people didn't used to highly rate bad movies as much. Maybe I'd have to go back and check.
