I haven't watched a new movie since 2016...
Anybody here beat that record?share
Not all...but outside of 4 movies I haven't been to a theater since 1999.share
Since 1999 I’ve seen most of Tarantino’s films, True Grit (2010), The Revenant (2015), 1917 (2020) and maybe a couple others that I can’t remember.
I have seen plenty of kids movies and many retro showings also.
You should check out Detroit, Wind River, Dunkirk, Phantom Thread, War for the Planet of the Apes, Annihilation, US, Once Upon a Time in Hollywoodshare

Have you always been into movies? What kinda stuff you into?
Kinda bummer you have to keep stopping and starting movies. I hate having to do that.

sadly, you haven't missed muchshare
That's kinda the thing...I watched tons of movies when I was younger, then one day I just kinda felt like I seen it all, ya know? Like at some point you've seen about every plot point, nuance, dramatic twist etc. there is.
Everything seems like a slight variation of something else you've seen before.
It's also hard for me to read fiction now too, for the same reason.
No. I highly prefer movies from the 1930-70s, but I will watch certain movies just to test it out... I've usually regretted watching a "new" movie. The one that I did like in 2016 was a guy who says he's retiring (Ken Loach), "I, Daniel Blake"
The "newest" movie that I considered GREAT was "Buffalo '66" which is 22 years old.
I know what you mean. It would be fun to do a graph for my top 100 based on year.share
Buffalo 66, huh? I didn't really get that movie, but I miss that era of filmmaking.share
I still watch new stuff but more out of a sense of duty to stay aware than anything. Pre-90s is where I live.
I have to acknowledge that I do occasionally find inspiration in new movies, and if not, the experience is likely to reinforce my passion for the olden ways and feels.
