It might be a well-worn cliche, but one of the best things about cinema is that there's something for everyone. Whether you're into comic book movies, slashers, prestige dramas, musicals or even the Fifty Shades franchise (we're not here to judge), there's so much content available across all forms of media that you're always going to be able to find something to enjoy.
Most movies are made for audiences; after all, we're the ones that the filmmakers are trying to persuade to spend money on their product. If they can't convince us to vote with our wallets, then ultimately they lose out and we win, because we don't have to sit through sh*t like Fant4stic or 47 Ronin.
But sometimes, you look at a movie and just think 'why?'. Projects that make it all the way through pre-production, filming, editing, marketing and release without anyone bothering to question if anybody even cares about its existence. Think along the lines of the Dumb and Dumber prequel, Blues Brothers 2000, The f**king Emoji Movie and many more.
Each year, there are plenty of movies released that don't really seem to appeal to anyone in particular, or just seem like a completely pointless waste of resources that could be spent on something worthwhile. 2018 so far has been no exception.
I don't social network, so like or follow me in person but please maintain a safe distance or the authorities will be notified. Film and TV graduate turned chef, once labelled a misogynist on this very site in a twenty paragraph-long rant for daring to speak ill of the Twilight franchise. Go figure.
