Is it just me?

Admittedly I don't bother with comicbook movies or "summer blockbusters" but, after viewing trailers for Alien Covenant, Blade Runner 2049, Atomic Blonde, and several others I can't recall at the moment, I do wonder...

Is it just nostalgia or are most actors now very wooden and "reading" their lines instead of acting?

There are a few actors that I can almost always expect an excellent performance from. Admittedly I got into John Goodman's work from Sharp telling me to watch Big Lebowski. Goodman was the best part of that movie and frankly the only reason anyone should watch it. He was also excellent in Cloverfield Lane and the Boston Bombing movie.

But take say, Noomi Rapace or whatever the fuck her name is. She was supposedly excellent in Prometheus, but didn't even come close to Sigourney Weaver in Alien or hell, even Aliens! ...or even Alien 3, to be completely honest. It's not that the script was awful (it was) she just can't fucking act.

Even The Arrival had a decent premise but I once again felt I was watching a made for TV movie and not Hollywood actors who make millions.

Is it just me?

Ew, new star trek.

And sorry but then explain Christopher Lee. He was in AWFUL movies but made them extremely watchable (when he showed up anyway)

How can Deckard be a robot if he's that old? Robots die quick.
