Nobody likes the idea of reboots, revivals or long winded sequels AKA The Hobbit trilogy. Pirates 4, transformers 4 etc...
Nobody likes big blockbuster franchises even though they make millions
Films with original ideas (people say they want) do not make it big at the box office. With rare exceptions in recent years.
So is it because Hollywood is too polarized? I find that I only choose to go watch certain movies that I expect to be good. Namely the big brands and franchises that I know everyone will be talking about. And in recent months exclusively Marvel. I hated just about every oscar nominated movie in the past few years mostly because they had a "powerful [but empty] statement" that didn't appeal to me. These days, I'd rather invest my time in a TV show where things are more thought out, more creative, and more character driven. Better yet are books! So many books so little time!
Even films like American Sniper (which I haven't seen) and Lone Survivor you'd expect would appeal to me, but they don't either. I don't like the politics swirling around those titles either. This even had my questioning why I ever watched The Interview.
If you don't believe me, a Hollywood insider by the name of George Lucas also shared my suspicions. He said that Hollywood is getting, "more and more circus without any substance behind it." George Lucas Rips Hollywood, ‘Stupid’ Cat Videos at Sundance | Variety
What say you. Also please don't be like my Uncle and say only films from the 1950s were good. That is not this discussion.
