Why Are There So Few Smartphones In Popular Movies?

You have to admit that smartphone use is way too common in the real world, and rare in movies. That makes our biggest movies totally unrealistic. So what? We don't go to movies to see the real world; we go to movie to escape the real world. Evan Puschak, the Nerwriter, analyzed the top movies of 2018 to determine how much and how smart phones are used in them, and found some interesting results. The "why" is pretty simple, if you ask me. While many of us use smart phones all day long, we don't really care to watch other people do it. That's not interesting. And if you think smart phone use is rare, Puschak also looks into the appearances of social media, too. (via Laughing Squid)
