What kinds of films will reflect the era? Simple, blunt and populist fare has to be the answer, films that do not challenge or innovate and instead hark back to a juvenile emotional comfort zone where one can remain forever snug in one's own ignorance. Cinema, as art, is always heavily influenced by and therefore can be seen as something of a reflection of the moods of the time.
I've found myself going to the cinema less often too, although that's sometimes been as a result of other pressures. I've only seen three films theatrically so far in 2018: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
& Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool
. I found all of those to be very good and well worth my time so there are movies out there of quality, even if they aren't necessarily the most popular ones.
