What I find disappointing is that many of the movies fall well short in the engaging story line and just rely on special effects to try and fill the gap.
Ding! Ding! Ding!!! couldn't agree with you more, Matt.
YAHTSEE!!!!! Old movie buff here. Double meaning there. I'm an old buff of old movies. I am getting very tired of CGI driven movies. Though they may not be the best movies ever, I can find pleasure in ones that, at least, have a story to tell and are well acted (Bridge of Spies, Trumbo, etc.)
