Gone are the days of simple, enjoyable movies. Everything today, at least in mainstream cinema, feels like it’s been shot full of adrenaline or had its skirt blown way up in the air, hence why we’re remembering the kinds of movies we don’t get anymore these days. With the absence of actors like Marlon Brando and Jim Carrey (off painting existential marvels somewhere), we’re not only missing beloved genres but also beloved kinds of actors.
With this, we end up getting a dozen over-budgeted, interlaced superhero movies and the occasional Tarantino turd, at least in the past 10 years. While blockbusters seem to be taking a dive in quality, it’s forcing indie films to push the envelope on experimental film and directors like Wes Anderson to revive the deceased genres in his own vision.
Have a look at ten kinds of movies we don’t get anymore these days and sorely miss, with anything from ancient westerns and silent films to neighborly and absurd character comedies, along with missing mobsters and coming-of-age tales. We promise, by the end of it, you’ll be binging hard on some nostalgia. You might want to just take the rest of the month off now before you begin.
