    Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: the Prevalence of Reboots in Modern Cinema

    Look into the recent franchise reboot craze, and diagnose the loss of Hollywood originality.

    • Or juxtapose the loss of "originality" with the increasing demand for the next big thing- perhaps there is a correlation between remaking an old film and finding a new, high-tech way of presenting an old story. – Amanda Rose 5 years ago

    • Not just franchise reboots, but novel and comic book adaptations, sequels, prequels, and prologues: how franchises overstay their welcome.I'm sure profitability plays a hand in the madness. – george 5 years ago

    • Certainly this trend seems motivated by profit more than a desire for meaningful storytelling. Production companies now weigh the ability to produce a film based upon its potential to spawn sequels. I'd be interested in exploring the difficulties faced by an unestablished writer/director in obtaining backing for a unique standalone project. Would the moviegoing audience have the patience for that? – JohnArthur 5 years ago

    An interesting point about driving out the bad to make room for the good. The only problem with the idea of critics and the improving of films: people will see a movie no matter how terrible it is (see Transformers, Transformers 2, etc. (here’s looking at you, Bay)). In the long run, it seems like critics are merely a slap on the wrist in the grand scheme of things.

    The Glaring Importance of Critics in Filmmaking

    I enjoyed the article. I’m afraid that super hero movies have gotten out of control. Their saturation of the cinema has caused movies in general to gain a certain stigma.

    Well written. An interesting smattering of characters to analyze.
