Old vs. New Movies

Old vs. New Movies

Karena Ward, Staff Writer

Many movies from the 1900’s to the 2000’s have been remade, like Spiderman, Footloose, and musicals like Hairspray, and Annie.

Ms. Speer said, “In the 90’s, teen movies were more likely to have teen actors, so it would be more realistic than actors in their 20’s playing a teen.”

There isn’t a specific year for the best movie quality. Through the years, though, movies have been getting a lot more into special effects and green screens. No one knows if movies will get better or worse in the future.

“I think that as the technology improves, the quality of the films will go up in terms of effects,” Weedsport Senior Robert Ward said.

The most popular genre has been action and adventure throughout a lot of the years. It seems that those have been up in special effects with explosions and all that cool stuff. Romance and crime have gone down on the scale.

Ms. Speer said, “A good movie has to be just like the book, if it’s from a book. It also has to be a well-told story with a lot of stakes and a protagonist so the views can get caught and hooked into it.”

On the other hand, Ward had a different view on it, “Nothing really makes a good movie, because an action movie won’t make a good romance movie. So different genres have a different way of making it good. It just has to have a good amount of detail so it’s understandable but not simply.”

Some recent movies have been Doctor Strange, Divergent, and The Longest Ride. Older Movies have been Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Titanic, and The Lion King. Different people have diverse opinions on everything between the actors, and the actual movie.
