Chaos Cinema: The Decline and Fall of Action Filmmaking

This terrific, well-presented video essay by film scholar Matthias Stork basically looks at how crappy action films have become today. Although there is a time and place for chaotic editing and visuals, this essay convincingly argues that most contemporary Hollywood action films are lazily shot, bludgeoning experiences that don't really care about the viewer.
