Cmon... can we just stop this already? The guy is close to 80. He had a great run. He was the man women wanted to be with and other guys wanted to be. I donít know why Hollywood has started rebooting or sequeling everything instead of making new amazing movies.

Look at the 70ís, 80ís and 90ís. Watch the original Ghostbusters. That movie is still hilarious all these years later. Or the Matrix. Amazing flick. The Godfather? Not bad eh?  Where are the new, amazing, innovative blockbuster movies? All I see is a never ending slew of comic book movies, horrible reboots and sequels.

Yes, this!† And also leave out alien stuff with powers that don't make sense.† And giant ants that are way too intelligent.† And crazy chase scenes with way too much CGI.† And...I'll stop now.

I'm so glad they only made 3 Indiana Jones. 2 Terminators and 1 Matrix. Imagine the absolute cluster$&@" if they had kept producing them?

There are more coming. Remakes of Back to the Future, Highlander, and a continuation of the Arnie Conan movies.

All I can say is I hope Arnie swings a mean walker in the new Conan...

Morphy just think of those poor executives. Currently they're only multimillionaires, but, thanks to the wringing out of already tired franchises, they could become multi multi multimillionaires. Just think how many yachts they could snort cocaine on then! Almost brings a tear to the eye just thinking about it and all it will cost is creative integrity.

Oh I do my friend. I grieve for them. The other day I heard one of the execs could only snort two lines off a dead hooker. Cried my self to sleep.

Just think... with deepfake technology, weíll never need a new actor ever again!  The same ones can just keep coming back over and over and over, and they wonít ever get older or miss a line, and no level of selling out will ever be too low.

Just googled.  This was back in June.  The response was overwhelmingly against and there's no current rumors.

Thereís a shortage of perfect movies in this world. It would be a shame to squander yours on a remake.

If they actually remade Princess Bride, it would have to have a different title... and a different plot... with completely different characters.

Disney is going to ride that horse to death. Think Walking Dead in space.

Meh, I donít get why people hate sequels.
One of my favorite movies (Trainspotting) got a sequel (Trainspotting 2) 20 years later which I consider to be one of the worst movies ever made. I wouldnít mind a Trainspotting 3. As long as it was good.

The alien pre-/sequels were good too. I canít wait for the next.

Itís not like there isnít still being made original movies.

That's the thing. Up until recently people didn't hate sequels. Actually sequels are as much of a sure thing as you can get in the movie business. If the original movie was very successful it's almost a slam dunk that the sequel won't be at least fairly successful and oftentimes more than the original even if it's subjectively not as good.

I personally don't hate sequels just because they are sequels. I hate them because they are being made for easy profit. They are taking precedence over new original movies. And they are often nothing more than thinly veiled reboots to begin a whole other round of movies within that particular universe.

@Morphy... spot on. Movies should first entertain and second make a profit so there is a reason to make more. If profit comes first, the movie loses its real purpose and it disrespects the audience.

What I see it as is the movie equivalent to a popular, expensive clothing brand that decides to start selling to Wal-mart for the increased distribution but ends up tanking peopleís confidence in their brand.

In the short term thatís what Hollywood is doing. Making lots of poorly thought out movies for the quick and dirty cash. But they are sacrificing the growth of their industry for quick cash in the short term. Is that over thinking it?  ;D Well, thatís what I think anyways lol.

It doesn't matter what American consumers think though. China is a far bigger market and they can get their hands on all that delicious CCP money. Sure, they might have to edit out "undesirables" and have characters make inexplicable trips to China for no apparent reason and might have ignore the fact the land they're shooting on was cleared of Uigur muslims who were then moved to concentration camps, but they'll make SO MUCH MONEY.

Ugh. Case in point- The Transformers series. Holy crap please let it die already lol.

At least Transformers has always been that way, so nobody should be surprised. The 1980ís Transformers movie was effectively banned in the US in the 90ís because they killed Optimus Prime just to sell more toys and introduce new characters to the toy market.

Are they really remaking all those movies? Thats insane. Well i havent had TV in 5 years, even now our main entertainment is YouTube shows on my tablet. I dont watch very many commercials.  I tend to keep in my bubble. I havent set foot in a movie theater since 2008 `tropic thunder` thankfully they are not making a sequel to that. But i wouldnt know anyway. This forum is my main window to the outside world, outside of the town i visist once or 2 times a week.

Youíre not missing much vet. There have been very few shows worth watching lately.

I use to visit my parents.  When i still lived i  NJ, They had tv. Most of  the time if i flipped though channels, i would usually turn it off, and read or go outside. I just go online to read some news, anymore.

Groucho Marx said something like "TV is very educational. Everytime i see what's on I go read a book."

Post by Kick on Dec 22nd, 2020 at 1:52pm
We don't have a TV basically just because when we moved we didn't have a spare and we didn't want to buy one. Haven't missed it. We've watched a bit of TV like vetryan when at our parents places but it's just adverts (commercials). Adverts after adverts. YouTube adverts can be bad enough but at least there is a max of two in a row. There can be like 15 minutes of adverts! How do people even remember what show they're watching?
