The god font or a cliche, boring and inanimate?

I found the documentary film 'Helvetica' about the font type Helvetica is good for various reasons. One is that apart from showing Helvetica's rise(s), it shows it's falls and faults. Some people don't like it, they think it's boring, and I should also mention that some of these people are famous top-notch designers who make money just because their name is in something. 

Personally, I think there are places for Helvetica, and there are other places for more creative approaches.

Another thing that this film made me realise mostly, is how good it is to be aware of what's around you. Not what is happening, but simply how things look, the effect they have, the mood they give.
