Alright, I know I am not the only blogger who thinks this but what is wrong with some of the movies coming out in theaters for the past couple years. We are either seeing remakes of movies or sequels to a hero or animated franchise that is very popular for example Xmen, The Avengers, Thor, Spidermen, etc. I have to ask has Hollywood ran out of ideas? Are they just sitting on their buts thinking what can we make that will take very little effort but make us copious amounts of money. I am sorry about this rant but this has been bugging me for a while.
I think part of this started when production companies decided to make remakes of teenage mutant ninja turtles, and dirty dancing. Also, as part of the annoying millennial generation I speak for some of us when I say that we want to see something original and not pay 8.75 to see a new spin on an old movie. I am sure this annoyed plenty of baby boomers potentially if their were remakes of the old movies they used to watch were coming out in the 1970’s. I mean no wonder people loved Star Wars at the time at least it was different and exciting and in space. This too me is a one trick pony that movie theaters need to stop using, unless they have a really kick ass idea to make the movie better tell then I don’t want to hear it.
Also, this makes it even harder to for one to figure out if you want to go to the movies because you don’t if it will be a sequel or a remake. Also, you spend some time debating with your loved ones on which movies to see because trying to find something new and different to watch is hard. This could be why television shows are giving movies are run for their money because their you have too much to watch if their can be such a thing and it’s hard to decide. I will say that like 25% to 50% of it is good and I am leaving reality television out of the equation because that is just scripted drama in most cases these days. (and a rant for another day) So to all you readers out there I have to ask do you think movies have gotten worse or better? Furthermore do you think television is giving the movie business a run for their money through such means as Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime, Direct Tv, etc?
