After watching the Godfather trilogy and the Shawshank Redemption along with Harrison Ford's thrillers from the mid 90's the past few weeks, it got me thinking. Have we had any true movie classics the past six years? No in my book, what we seem to be getting more and more of is these crappy comedies and romantic dramas along with big budget films like Mission Impossible and Lord of the Rings which lack quality.
Is this down to the quality of actors these days? The likes of Al Pacino, Harrison Ford, Robert De Niro, etc are all getting old and there doesn't appear to be any good young actors coming through.
