30 Movies That Could Never Be Made Today According to Lifehacker.com

"COVID altered the landscape in ways we couldn't have foreseen, but also might only have accelerated trends already underway: shorter release windows, simultaneous streaming debuts, and a general erosion of the theater as the place to see new movies. These factors and more have led to the death of mid-budget films made for grownups, at least theaters. The prevailing trends are to go ultra-cheap (in Hollywood terms, anyway) a la Blumhouse, or with a big-budget would-be mega-blockbuster, with not much in-between—studios just aren't looking to spend big money on a question mark. Lots of crappy stuff got made in every era of filmmaking—there are great movies being made today that would never have had a chance 30 years ago, and vice versa. All that aside, and for a variety of reasons, the following 30 movies could certainly never be made today." - lifehacker.com
