Your view on what is entertainment probably differs from everyone elses. A movie doesn't need a story to be enjoyable, sure it helps, but its not completely necessary for entertainment. A good movie either needs to be Good Action to keep me entertained or an Excellent Story to keep me interested, i prefer the latter, but an action film is a good way to waste some time, and i personally enjoyed man on fire, despite the violence being pointless. I personally don't enjoy that many foreign films, and don't expect anything great out of movies, and i don't need to, just a good way to pass the time. If you don't have any good expectations you can never be disappointed.Seta-San said:my problem with most movies coming out in the USA, with very few exceptions, is that they are all moving towards the rap/gangsta mentality. Movies like Man on Fire amung several others seem to glorify senseless killing and are hardly fun to watch. There have been some high profile movies like LOTR and spiderman which are excellent but i feel that they are coming fewer and farther between.
Like one of my favorites of all movies is Face/Off, a movie with LOTS of action and no real plot, but i still find it superbly entertaining because of the Action Sequences. And while movies like the Manchurian Candidate have hardly any action at all, the plot kept me interested until the very end of the movie. Just depends on the situation, not on all american movies in general.
