Re: Do movie audiences today have lower expectations?

no, I think with the cinema being as expensive as it is, people have higher expectations, especially when it comes to special effects in big hollywood blockbusters.

if it's a thriller, or courtroom drama, I think a lot of people are less likely to see that at cinema, with home systems being so good, and films being available at home so good, but they expect the high caliber of acting you see in films and TV.

Comedies as well, ppl want to be entertained and made to laugh.

I think you're asking the wrong question:

Do film companies take less risks and just churn out lots of similar films knowing that's what sells, and have low expectations of their audiences?

With so much quality content out there, ppl are more choosy I think about what they watch.

Re: Do movie audiences today have lower expectations?

I havent been to the cinema in a while but the cost is incredible and when you have kids who want food as well it ends up costing a lot of money!


Prices need to go down.

Re: Do movie audiences today have lower expectations?

Although dated I do remember cinema in South Africa in the 70's. (In the late 60's some people would dress up to go to the cinema).
Apart from from some really odd censorship ratings there was more of an experience with news reels (one bilingual), shorts and maybe even a second movie.

Re: Do movie audiences today have lower expectations?

Yep, which is one of the reasons I don't go to the cinema any more. That and covid and selfish morons who can't stay off their phones for more than a minute at a time.

Re: Do movie audiences today have lower expectations?

I think almost certainly audiences accept less. A flashy reboot rather than something new, or a spin-off so character development doesn’t need to start from scratch.
