Most Films Are Simply OK

I just wanted to point out something that the internet has made people forget.  Most films are simply OK.

The internet has made people believe that each film must either be The Greatest Movie Ever Made or The Worst Movie Ever Made.  That is not true.  The vast majority of films are simply OK.  They occupy us and (if we’re lucky) entertain us, and then we move on with our lives.  We may eventually forget that we even saw the film, perhaps even relatively soon.

It is rare to go to the movies and see a Citizen Kane or The Godfather.  It is also rare to go to the movies and see a Master of Disguise or Manos the Hand of Fate.  Most films are just momentarily entertaining and then forgettable.

We all need to remember that.
