State of Cinema

Here is a list of upcoming movies.  Well, the upcoming movies that are remakes of previous movies.  Many of them movies never should have been made in the first place and now they are are rebooting them.

This is depressing.  All this clutter gumming up what little original material there is.  Sucking up all the oxygen in the room.

It must make the studios money.  Or makes them money at a lower risk level.

Sometimes it's ok.  It's was 55 years between the Walter Mitty movies, and they were different enough to be different things.  And the modern was actually halfway decent.  Decent enough for me to forgive the presence of Sean Penn and Ben Stiller in the picture. 

But does the world ache for another Dirty Dancing?  Wasn't Time Bandits good enough the first time. 

Now a better Starship Troopers, closer to Heinlein's vision, might be fine.  And a new Wild Bunch?  We'll see what Peckinpah-less gets you.
