I'd have to agree with you. Movies have indeed gotten worse. There are a few exceptions, but especially in 2011, the quality of movies has taken an extreme dip and there are less quality movies than last year. 2011 wasn't as good as 2010. 2010 wasn't as good as 2009 (although, 2009 is a year that is hard to beat).

If it's not about lame fart jokes or sex humor, then it doesn't appeal to 13-40 year olds. Hollywood has officially jumped the shark.
