The Abysmal Brutes

Why Does Every Story Suck Now?

June 15, 2018

Pop Culture storytelling is in a deficit right now. Blockbuster movies are bust. Television shows make dark, unrelenting melodramas. And can there be a novel without the title “A Girl in the…”?  Have we heard, read and seen every story there is? Has the expressive voice of the creator been muted by studio or publisher bottom lines? Half of the Abysmal Brutes believes there is no ceiling on wondrous tales now and to come. The other half doubts the current path of cinema, television and other storytelling mediums.  Is it us? Is it you? Or does everything just suck?
