I stole this but it's really my thinking

It's good to know I'm not the only person out there who believes this --
You know what? It's time to Reboot and Remake Hollywood!

This weekend co-signed on the reality everybody knows... REMAKES DON'T TURN A PROFIT! If you take a look at the last 5 years most the remakes don't amount to much. Yeah, 'Clash of the Titans' did well, but it got by through the 'curiosity factor'. And once folks saw the mess, they hated it.

I don't know if the Execs are just foolish or lazy; but this remake-prequel-poor plot plan ain't working. Hollywood movies are not turning out huge profits like the 80s and 90s. In fact, there only handfuls of movies that are making real money. Why is that? Because folks are tired of this foolishness!

If anything needs to rebooted or remade, it's Hollywood. They need to get these folks outta there! These are examples of what could help:

  • We need moguls and execs to move beyond this horrid phase and start making great movies again.
  • Stop remaking films, just re-release them. Think of the money and time saved!
  • Don't make any of these fresh faced movie makers more than what they are. They need at lease a Golden Globe nomination, not a MTV Movie award.
  • Get better writers with a lot of life experiences. The experiences some these writers have are blacking out at a frat parties and bisexual flings. Find better writers, Hollywood!
  • Read scripts and stop passing them to college interns to read. That's why we get the mess that we do.
  • Let writers write!
  • Be open to new ideas. We are tired of the books-comics-board games styled flicks. Let's try something else.
We deserve better and it's time we get better. Hopefully, I can be a part of this change someday.

I got nothin' to add...especially since I spent some of the evening trying to blot out the past on my used canvasses so do not have much of a linear thought process going. White paint on Norwegian skin is rather odd looking.
