    Why? If you ask them, they already know everything about it. And if you try to explain to them why they are great movies, they will tell you that you are old and nobody likes those kind of movies anymore.

    Sit a millennial down in front of any of these movies and you'll never get them to listen to anything he sang.

    We might need a different thread on why Hollywood churns out so many movies that are mediocre to bad. In short, they've found a cookie cutter formula for putting out movies that are often just okay and almost never great, but make money. It's all about the money. For Hollywood if they put out a film that achieves a cult classic status eventually, but fails at the box office, it's a failure. None of this is the millennials' fault, btw. They would probably welcome super creative and amazing movies.
