Is Marvel the only good thing left in entertainment?

A real question to ask since Game of Thrones is limping to the finish line with nothing on TV to really take its place.

Most music today cannot compete with the greatness of the 1970's-to early 2000's.

Video Games are damn near ponzi schemes with how much money you are asked to dish out if you want to play online with your friends or some of them just eat up space on your hard drive.

Films outside of Marvel struggle to get people to give a shit plus with all four of these entries you have to worry about how the twitter word views what you release if it meets they want and so far Marvel Studios have been the only thing to not fall victim of not meeting expectations and not pissing off social media that much.

So how much truth is in that statement that Marvel Studios is the only thing left in the entertainment business that people can really look forward to without feeling let down or offended?

I like the Fast & Furious franchise. I guess gaming can also be viewed as entertainment. Red Dead Redemption 2 had a better story than most movies or shows I've seen lately.

Absolutely not.

Indie films are getting a lot more (deserved) attention than ever before. DC seems to have gotten its shit together. Star Wars still has its remaining films coming out, and who knows what more they will do.

What Marvel has done is simply nothing like anything we've ever seen before. It is the dominant talking point of the film industry and rightfully so. That doesn't mean there isn't other great things happening. There was a time when Vietnam war films were the biggest talking points in entertainment. There was a time when gangster films were the norm. The early 2000s were dominated by the fantasy film genre, with the Star Wars prequels, The Lord of the Rings films and Harry Potter films receiving so much hype.

Television is no different. MASH once dominated the entertainment industry. We all know how insanely popular Pro Wrestling got in the 90s. Breaking Bad was one of the most talked about shows during its tenure. Something will come up that will replace Game of Thrones.

Right now, comic book films are the new big thing, and will continue to be for a while with DC now gaining some momentum. But there's still some really REALLY good stuff going on right now that people aren't paying too much attention to. Endgame received loads of attention for very obvious reasons. But so did Lord of the Rings Return of the King. So did the third Godfather movie. So did anything that had a large following and loads of hype. But there are definitely a lot of good things left out there.

Because how much money something makes is totally relevant to how good it is.

Other good things in entertainment on the way.

Zombieland 2.

Venture Bros season 8.

Better Call Saul season 5.

Rick and Morty season 4.

The long awaited new Tool album being released August 30th.

Just because there is a lot of shit being produced by the entertainment industry these days hardly means there isn't still a lot of good things out there.

Problem with Red Dead 2 is that you have to delete almost all of your games to fit it on your hard drive. Plus like I said online gaming is were its living now and that means having to more money after you bought it to keep up with your friends. A video game today pretty much cost almost 100 dollars or more because of that.
