In the last few weeks I've been rewatching some films from the 1980's/90's, such as Die Hard, Gremlins, Total Recall, Back to the Future and Beetlejuice, and what stuck out to me was that every one of these movies had a distinct look. If I look at movies now, they all look the same. The majority is either heavily filtered or post processed, and even worse - most of them in the same way; which leads to a majority of today's movies looking the bloody same. Same colors. Same everything. And they look muddy as hell, and flat, as if characters were painted on the backrounds/sets. A reason I'm fond of Christopher Nolan's movies is his cinematography, which is pretty distinct, and doesnt' rely on filters or post-processing, but rather on lighting and production design. Another director who sticks out is Guillermo del Toro, who uses a much less raw and naturalistic look, but who has a distinct style and clearly knows how to use his tools. That was my rant. I'll further elaborate later, but would like to know what you think of the points I've made.
