I have come to the realization that I only enjoy watching action movies, more specifically super hero movies. I still watch any other kind of movie, but the only ones I want to sit in a theatre and enjoy are those of the action genre. I watched the trailer for Avengers 2 and I seriously cant wait to head to the theater and enjoy that movie, I don’t think I have been this excited for a movie ever. While I know action movies play on the excitement of the public in order to get fans into theaters, I have rarely been let down by my first impression of a good action movie. I once loved going to theaters to watch other genres of film but as I’ve grown, certain types of movies have stayed the same, and I have lost interest. Comedy films have not changed in years, at this point all comedy movies are recycled gimmicks from my childhood, and with the level of intelligent comedy available on television or online, it is almost impossible to expect me to pay to watch one of these films in a theater. Drama and thrillers have also lost my attention as of late, not due to the fact that they are not entertaining, but since I find them predictable, I have not seen a film that sneaks in a solid twist in this genre for years and that is disappointing. I will most likely continue watching only action films until I am completely blown away by reviews and trailers of a film of a different style. I have been told I would enjoy the movie Gone Girl so I will give it a try when I get a chance, hopefully it restores my faith in thrillers as a cinematic genre.
