Movies are getting worse, and nothing typifies that more than anything J.J. Abrams touches. Unlike M.

And yes, that includes The Force Awakens.
D.A. posted an angry rant from Cracked on Facebook that enumerates five reasons why most movies today, but particularly Abrams movies, are getting worse. The only thing Cracked Guy forgot is terrible gimmicks like the Star Trek reboot’s lens flares.
