It’s true, Hollywood movies are getting darker and darker with every advancement in cinematographic technology. Some of the movies are so dark that you literally have to squint to see what’s happening on screen. It’s tough to watch these movies even in theatres. This has been happening for quite some time, but people are only just talking about it now. Here are 4 of the biggest Hollywood movies with very poor lighting that will have you wondering if you need to get your eyes checked:
1. Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire:
One of the bad Harry Potter movies, the opening scene was so dark, it was hard to make out the characters or really tell what was happening. Someone who hadn’t read the books would have really had no idea of what was going on. Anyway, the Goblet of Fire was one of the really bad Harry Potter movies, and the absolutely poor lighting was one of the reasons why.
2. Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows Parts 1 & 2:
The last installments of the Harry Potter movies were both literally and figuratively immersed in darkness. A lot of the sequences were hard to watch. We get that the makers were trying to be all dark and mysterious since this was one of the macabre parts of the entire series. But they may have gone overboard in some of the scenes since we couldn’t really see well what was happening on screen.
3. Game of Thrones Seasons 6 & 7:
Game of Thrones is one series that got progressively bad with every season. Thankfully, the first 5 seasons were well lit, but it was seasons 6 & 7 where things really took a turn. A lot of the scenes had poor lighting. You could say that Season 7 was the worst of all.
4. The Little Mermaid:
A yet unreleased movie, the live-action version of the classic cartoon is already in soup for changing the race of the Little Mermaid. And of course, for a trailer with bad lighting. Looks like the movie was actually shot on the sea bed because the trailer looks dark, even the scenes which are above ground. Honestly, movie makers are ruining the experience of watching movies by experimenting too much with lighting in their bid to being dark and mysterious.
