Indiana Jones 5 seriously?

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 don’t know why Hollywood has started rebooting or sequeling everything instead of making new amazing movies.

Look at the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. 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.

Everything has been made already, it seems.

Sorry, but it's a pet peeve of mine:  'Yea' isn't the word you want.  It's 'yeah'.  'Yea' is an anachronistic word you see in the King James bible. "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of Spellcheck, I shall fear no misspellings for thou art with me.  Thy dictionary and thy thesaurus, they comfort me.

At least the new Indiana isn’t Shia LaBoeuf... please tell me they didn’t bring back Shia LaBeouf.

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, we’ll never need a new actor ever again!  The same ones can just keep coming back over and over and over, and they won’t ever get older or miss a line, and no level of selling out will ever be too low.

Don't need the old actors either.  Animals can be put in everything!  Cheesy

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

There’s 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.
