If you felt like there was nothing on at the cinema over the summer, you were not alone.
Summer takings at the US box office were at their lowest level for more than two decades, with only films aimed at youngsters really making any impact.
What has been behind the slump?
Analysts forecasted a fall in attendance at the start of the summer - blaming a continuing trend for making sequels, along with the rise in popularity of streaming services.
And their hunches were right - especially in August, when box office takings were $625m (£482m), nearly 35% lower than the same month last year.
World War Two epic Dunkirk did draw in the crowds, as did family films Despicable Me 3 and the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean offering - but they were rare exceptions.
I don't mind a few superheroes here and there, but cinema is dominated by such films now, plus most of them are sequels.
Modern films have incredible special effects. Things smashing into buildings and collapsing, car chases on an enormous scale, space battles, the list goes on, but where are the stories?
Game of Thrones, I believe, shows the direction where things are heading, in that if you want to watch a good story, it'll be on TV. If a TV show is given the kind of budget that GoT has, in combination with excellent writing, acting and direction, then anything is possible.
It's been known for a long time that the best tv shows are found on America's cable channels as opposed to the more standard fare found on American network tv as these tend to show the same kind of stuff as Hollywood with many superhero shows. Even Netflix has made several superheroes shows from the Marvel comics stable.
Mad Men, Breaking Bad, GoT etc all on American cable tv.
Is Hollywood in danger of shooting itself in the head with producing so much of the same kind of films? Their takings are way down this summer.
Do you still go to the cinema, or are you bored with it?
