I am very happy that the Star Wars universe has been activated again and in the same way that we can have Marvel Comics movies without waiting years and years. It’s great to open Disney + and have a rich catalog of fantasy and science fiction therea dream come true for my teenage self that unfortunately is starting to turn into a nightmare.
Ok, maybe not a nightmare but it does stop being a good dream to become a mediocre one. It is unavoidable when a company is dedicated to creating products such as a sausage factory, now one and another and another and another and another. In the end, they all end up looking alike and their quality gradually falls. It’s impossible to maintain a high level when you’re more concerned with releasing titles than anything else.
This is not something new
This is not something new, for example in the world of superhero comics you can travel to the 90s of the 20th century to see it clearly. It happens, it always happens. No matter what medium and genre you chooseAs much as we all like They Called Him Trinidad, it is still a film that demonstrates the moment of overexploitation that the western was going through, only that we were all fortunate that it was a wonderful comedy that made fun of the genre and that today it’s still enjoyable.
Right now this is what is happening. Walt Disney seems more interested in quantity than quality and that is clear in their products. Which is logical and I understand it, if you give and give more people will continue to subscribe to your platform and your movie premieres. More will become fans and this means money (don’t be fooled, companies don’t make products with the fan in mind, they do it with money in mind). Thus we have gone from The Avengers, which was a milestone in cinema, a franchise in reverse that first introduced the characters and then brought them together, to She-Hulk, which, although promising a lot, has been rather watered-down and bland, although with its successes (which it has ).
It is not the only title in which it happens. The accusation and exploitation are already beginning to be noticed (long ago) also in the movie premieres of their franchises. We are heading towards a new dark years for Disney, perhaps we are already in them we just have not heard. Perhaps it is very hackneyed to say that less is more. But what is certain is that less of a higher quality is better than more of a lower quality.
Of course the ideal would be more and of better qualityBut is not the case.
