    Films Becoming Shows: 2 Hours Not Enough

    Last night I watched the series premiere of Minority Report, based off the film with Tom Cruise from 2002. Tonight I watched the series premiere of Limitless, based off the film with Bradley Cooper from 2011. I have to say that Limitless is better, but that still doesn’t change the fact that suddenly all these films are becoming shows. What is up with that? They cancel great shows after a season or less just so they can make shows based off movies that were only semi-successful? Not to mention I heard that The Mortal Instruments failed movie is becoming a show called Shadowhunters to premiere next year.

    Is it the content? Both films turned shows that aired this week are futuristic about either preventing crimes before they happen or taking a pill that opens up a person’s entire brain. What is it about these two ideas that the entertainment world feels the need to bring them back and expand? Or is it more to do with the idea of reboots? Taking a failed idea and revitalizing it? Or taking a premise that has been forgotten and rediscovering it? Are there any original ideas left? Were there ever or are all stories pieced together from past projects?

    • The Wikipedia page on this may serve to guide prospective writers about all such shows. These include ‘Shaft’, ‘Bates Motel’ and many more. It would do the writer good to at least browse through both the film and TV adaptations of the project he intends to write in detail about while tipping his hat to the other stories. – Dr. Vishnu Unnithan 4 years ago

    Just the other day I was in Hot Topic and saw a Breakfast Club shirt. You know the iconic image of the five of them leaning against the lockers. I couldn’t help but smile at it’s resilience to the times, and when a friend asked me what I was smiling at I pointed and she gave me a blank stare. It was in that moment that I realized she was not familiar with the Hughes world and I must convert her.

    John Hughes Remains Relevant: Don't You Forget About Me

    I love how many different characters and worlds you discuss. I myself am amazed at how many films and shows are coming out this year alone. However, I understand that some people love being able to rely on the predictability, which could be said for all films. We love being able to prepare for what’s to come. Something we cannot do in real life.

    The Superhero Film in The Modern Era

    This was fun to read, thanks for writing. I personally think Lady in the Water is what did him in. I love Sixth Sense, Signs, and The Village. They all have the same level of suspense, but Sixth Sense and The Village have that incredible twist at the end. While Lady in the Water was too ridiculous for its own good.
