Inspired by hi224's thread, I wonder if there's a certain genre (or even several genres?) that you would never like to see again.
Or perhaps--if we can't go there--then is there a genre you'd at least like to see on hiatus for a while?* Delay its comeback? (I'm sure some people, myself included, would say that about superhero movies.)
Or is there a genre you'd never like to see again?
*I originally wrote that I couldn't think of a genre I'd like to interdict in its entirety, but cobalt reminded me that there's such a thing as this "torture porn" genre/sub-genre, and I'd be perfectly happy never to have one of those made ever again.
- Dark-and-depressing-as-in-existential-crisis-tone-in-movies-that-should-be-"light" I'm not interested in seeing Bond suffer or being depressed, I want gadgets, cheesy jokes, beautiful women and action. The bad guy also has to have more than 5 minutes total screentime (looking at you Skyfall)
- Genre-changing-over-the-duration-of-the-movie Exhibit 1: The Mummy (2017) is the epitome of that issue (it has so many others but let's stick to this one). It started as an adventure, then moved sci-fi, then horror and finished like a super-hero movie! Exhibit 2: Murder on the Orient Express (2017). The first 15 minutes make you think it will be a comedy but the rest is full drama and crime.
I'm not getting this. Biographical films are not exactly my favorites, but how does non-linear structure make them worse?
Completely agree on 'Alien monster running amok on a spaceship' movies. They made on ton these from early 80s to mid-90s. Not to mention that pretty much all of them used warehouses for spaceships, which was especially tiring.
