... of a Hollywood craze? I've just read that there's going to be a new Terminator film. Now, with the return of films such as Indiana Jones in the pipeline too, is Hollywood becoming less and less creative?
It seems like there are fewer and fewer original storylines for blockbusters coming out right now. There have been plenty of blockbusters that base their storylines on the old Marvel comics and old TV shows (Transformers, the new Hulk movie, Iron Man to name a few). With this new Terminator film and the return of Indiana Jones, what kind of message is this sending out to movie-goers? "Sorry, we're all outta ideas" comes to mind. There's also a multitude of directors re-making films and especially films from overseas (Sleuth, Dark Water and The Eye, for instance). Maybe this is the start of a downfall for the great Hollywood movie. Maybe the writer's strike will cause a big crash in the amount of truly original scripts brought forward. Perhaps international cinema will be a better prospect in the future.
