Why is characterization and character development so poorly implemented in modern TV that old shows like pic related completely outshine them in that respect? Daredevil does a decent job of it I guess but that was made by a Buffy writer too.
Other than DD the last show I can think of that properly developed characters was The Wire.
There's no subtlety in TV any more. Even critically acclaimed dramas like Mad Men and BrBa have cartoony and abruptly spontaneous changes in characters blamed on plot points or time lapses. Why are people OK with this?
Art reflects reality. People can't write good characterisation people are so bland and one-dimensional these days. Also, people are so distanced and guarded against one another that they never really deeply know a person. Basically people are really superficial, dull, and guarded these days, that it is hard to really get noteworthiness in terms of persona from them; and naturally this is reflected in modern tv shows.
When plebs talk about Wolf of Wallstreet I always bring this movie up and no one knows what I'm talking about.
Why is that?
We lesbians now.
ITT: sci-fi movies that suffer from small budgets but still turned out great
after seeing the trailer or some pictures i really thought the cgi was going to kill this for me but it was just odd enough at the beginning to pull me in, and the scene where horus attaches the leg was pretty great i thought that i ended up sticking with it. very cool movie.

I finally got around to watching it too recently. Easily one of Gyllenhaal's most underrated roles. Are those other movies you listed similar? I've been looking for other stuff to watch.
