I've observed, even though it's not something new, that there is a growing trend of "comparativeness" when reviewing a movie. Sure there are many films that share elements and have been used many times but it seems to have become an observational knee jerk action like it's a new Psychological App.
Take the new Warcraft trailer for example. I've watched several "reactionary" videos and every one of them immediately compared it too Lord of The Rings because of the sword and sorcery elements. What's the point?
There were plenty of stories realms similar to J.R.R. Tolkien but you don't hear anybody comparing it to Anne McCaffrey or Ramon E. Feist or Steven Brust. But no, just the mental button pushing of Game of Thrones or Lord of The Rings or The Hobbit.
Out of all the ones I've viewed so far there hasn't been any Hulk references because of the big muscular Orcs but it is early. Somewhere down the line I'm pretty sure someone will make an American Native reference like with Avatar. I get the feeling Objectivity plays a very small part in the observational skills regarding movies and is swiftly growing dimmer as time goes on.
