I think I agree with Servii’s point that we can’t make all art pieces immune to criticism because “taste is subjective,” but I don’t think there’s been any shortage of critical voices trying to hold creators accountable for making bad art.
The problem is that in order for films to be made, a lot of money has to be invested in something that doesn’t exist yet, and the people putting their money up want a return on their investment. Those same people have opinions about what “works” and “doesn’t work”.
So a lot of bad art gets made because it’s the result of so many compromises and promises and meddling.
People keep showing up to see these lame superhero movies, and they keep getting made because people show up.
Does bad art get made because the people making it lack talent, vision, and inspiration, or does the audience genuinely want bad art and the creators are merely providing an expensive service of schlocky entertainment?
Is there a difference between art and content?
