Each decade presents "trends" in color timing. They're usually based on the limitations of technology and, the visual tone of present day movie making. Someone brought up 80s movies being primarily yellow-red cast and, these transfers were brighter. Ridley Scott prefers "contemporary color trends" whenever given the opportunity to further manipulate the visual for the current generation and, the latest format, it's completely in his wheelhouse.
Cameron loves blue — Michael Mann started it first blue. Now cyan isn't dynamic enough when compared to the green tone dominating teal. All of the stay-at-home auteur's and, armchair cinematographers complaining about color trends, should find a new cause. Does anyone remember green in the post-Matrix era of new production?
