    The word 微妙 originally means 'subtle', but it has recently come to be often used to mean 'not very good'. This usage is rather new, so younger people tend to use that way.

    I cannot tell the exact meaning of the sentence you show, but It appears to mean that movies are (or the movie is) not very good in some way.
