Why is it, that almost every time I watch a new film, there is little to no time spent on character development? Is it just me? I know I'm going to see it from the very good to great filmmakers, but it seems as though most newbs want to skip it it all together. Have artists not learned any better, are people just getting lazy or do they just not care? Shouldn't people be taking the time to make us care about the characters they create? Or is this the difference between the mediocre and the outstanding? Your thoughts.
