Another pet peeve about today's movies

Recently, I wrote about why Hollywood has declined from what it once was.

One thing I find amusing especially with the summer blockbuster is how they go around suggesting that their movie is soon to be the highest grossing film or something along those lines. We'll see. The phrases like "highest grossing film of all time" among others is really subjective in light of factors like being able to attend a movie in 1939 for a quarter as opposed to today's movies which run in the neighborhood of $7-$9 dollars.

I thought the newest Batman movie was passable, but certainly wouldn't crack my Top Ten List. Even though it was well over two hours long, it still felt rushed and left many loose ends.
