Friday Night Topic: Underwhelmed by the box office

— 5:34 PM on October 14, 2005

According to early reviews, the DOOM movie is either great or terrible. My expectations are pretty low, in part because video game adaptations tend to be poor, but mostly because few movies these days seem worth the cost of admission. There were a few exceptions, of course, but like most I've been generally underwhelmed by what's at the box office. Still, I'm left wondering whether the quality of movies has actually declined, or if I'm just getting old and jaded. Is Hollywood still putting out a decent crop of quality movies each year? If so, what are they?
