Ever feel like the movies aren't what they're used to be? You may have a point. If you look at this graph you cannot help but see a steady decline in quality of the most successful movies.
By the way, here are some of the top grossing movies from 1995 (the absolute low point). Jumanji, Waterworld, Casper, Batman Forever and in first place Die Hard with a Vengeance. Doesn't sound that great, does it?
