I talk all the time about how we are losing the ability to tell stories. That much is apparently obvious in the overload of fluffed up and meaningless nonsense that hits the screens every week. It’s frustrating when every movie is either a lazily written super hero movie or one that is entirely dependent on the amount of explosions or risqué humor squeezed into it.
However, maybe not all of the blame should be put on the filmmakers. Maybe the audience is truly losing the ability to see and appreciate stories like we once did. Why might this be the case?
