I no longer enjoy action movies.
The last vestige left me last night.
I was watching Expendibles 2 and it wasn't even fun to make fun of it.
I'd noticed that my liking of such movies was waning when I just stopped caring who would prevail in Wrath of the Titans.
All the pretty explosions and special effects simply can not make up for a lack of plot or interesting characters. The latter sin is the most damning.
I've sat through and enjoyed a ton of movies with just the thinnest veneer of plot slapped on that had utterly fascinating characters with excellent acting performances.
I've noticed lately that several movies I really should have loved didn't even get me above "meh" enough to actually keep watching. I love period pieces and especially those set in Elizabethan England. Anonymous sure is pretty. And I have yet to make it through the first hour.
Also, the wrong Scott jumped off the bridge.
