Hollywood Running Out Of Idea's

GUY’S
Is it just me.,or is hollywood just putting out nothing but,retread.
For example: The last original movie I saw was THE CORE,at least though
nothing great it was at least a new idea. Now it seems all we get is remakes of
old T.V. shows GET SMART,CHARLIES ANGELS,BEWITCHED,and other
flops! I wonder what’s next a CGI movie of ADAM ANT?
With Frustration ZAP.:doh::doh:


#2

yes they have run out of ideas and the reason is they would have to think to come up with new ideas.


#3

It’s been that way for years. Same old re-hash with “so-so” acting and millions thrown into special effects. If the trend continues for too much longer then Hollywood as we know it will lose to independent film making.


#4

What gets me is they think we will keep paying to see movies with special effects but with a poooooor plot. I hate it when the good guy stands there and get shot at by 100 people with guns and he kills many of them but they never seem to hit him. Or they have special effects one after the other but the movie just looks like they patched together a lot of shot with special effects.

GUY’S,
All your points are valid.Maybe they will start listening to the
people who see films,and start thinking[like SAMLAR say’s],because
even the college crowd and young teens are going to reach a
point where their just bored.
Thanks for the input

Old people don’t have enough money, they’ve already spent it on the children.
Middle aged people don’t have money, they’re spending it on their children.
Young adults don’t have money, they’re saving for Houses & kids.
Children (aka teenagers) which haven’t seen all the films in the last 50years don’t realise all the movies being released are rehashed versions of 1970/80/90’s movies with added eyecandy,

Now ponder this:
Teenagers have the most disposable cash of any segment of western society.

You decide … Hollywood Dying or Flourishing?

DEBRO,
You maybe right. However if hollywood is going to continue to
put out junk.I think even the teens are going to get bored.
Enjoy ZAP.

Being original is hard, so it’s only natural most will be copies of one and other.

Sure, some of the college and teen crowd will. But look at stuff like disaster movie, scary movie, meet the spartans, and any other similar movies. They are always shit, but people still go see it.
Why? Simple. Most people now a days don’t know how to use their brain and say, wow, this movie is exactly the same as every other one.
Most people just say, oh man that looks funny lets go spend ten bucks to go see it!!

Boring people get bored very easily…this is transferred to company policy and economics.
And the marketing machine will produce whatever makes money…this is decided by how the people react/what they spend their money on.

= lots of people watch crap…therefore they will continue to produce it.


#11

I am finding that no name never heard of titles tend to be original. Albeit sometimes they aren’t the best movie but there is a few I ran into that were ok.


#12

Hence the above statement about independent films. :wink:


#13

I wonder if any original ideas EVER came out of Hollywood :doh:


#14

I would have to say…no.

One did I think it was their sign on the hill.


#16

In Hollywood’s eyes its OK to copy old ideas because they own the copyright to them.
They have no time for original thinking because they spending all their time protecting their copyrights.


#17

GUY’S
Most of you are right. Still I agree with those that say the writers
hollywood are relying on don’t like to think. Even I can think of
something. How about a film about holllywood executives who
can’t come up with any idea’s. So they say " I know let’s make a
film about the six millon dollar man.
Sorry bad satire

Dumb people breed faster than smart people … Hollywood even released a stupid movie on that premise … it’s called idiocracy …ergo … there will always be a plentiful supply of new teen idiots to make money from … and worse … as the population gets progressively dumber … those idiot teens won’t get much smarter as they get older & will remain in Hollywoods pocket :stuck_out_tongue:


#19

I think those are by far the truest words ever spoken about hollywood. :bow:

I say give them a chance as soon as the current group of
dumb bells finish their run. Maybe some new material will come
form these -------- fill in the blank
Enjoy ZAP.
