Do you think old movies are overrated?

I was browsing ShowBox trying to find a good movie to watch. As I didn’t know how good some movie titles are, I choose the option to view the best rated movies only. Most movies under that category were from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. Today’s movies can’t be that bad. I thought of two possible reasons behind this. 1. Old movies have been there longer so it is logical that they have more reviews; 2. There weren’t many good movies back then so any movie would be seen as good and would be remembered for lifetime. For example, if back to the future was released today, it wouldn’t be that popular in my opinion. Do you like old movies?

People have different tastes I suppose. There are many well made movies today. Like the hobbit/Lord of The Rings triology. And if you compare the old batman movie and the new one for example, the new one seems much more interesting as a storyline and not just special effects. But I agree with you that most movies nowadays are childish and preachy.

It depends on. I hardly watch old movies because there are still many new movies waiting for me to watch. Sometimes I think that the old movie was nice before but I don't think so when I watch it again now. Perhaps everything looks so outdated and it looks less attractive.
