I suppose I'm just going through some kind of "phase", but it seems like movies today are just depressing as shit. I just want to watch some upbeat, fun movies! I talking things like "Big Trouble in Little China", "Commando", stuff like that. I want to stay away from anything that takes itself too seriously, or at least anything attempting to be "dark and gritty".
It doesn't have to be just Action movies either, though. For example, Sleepless in Seattle was on the other day and, as much as I generally hate chick-flicks, I honestly didn't mind watching it. As well, "Copland" was actually genuinely good, I though, even being a tad heavier than most stuff at the time.
I don't know what it is, but there's something about more recent movies that hasn't been grabbing me. Maybe I'm just nostalgic, or maybe the movies just honestly don't feel as unique -- whatever the case, any suggestions are welcome!
