This article is what has triggered my rant

http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20110303/film_nm/us_bladerunner

Why do they do this?
A classic film is a classic for a reason.
Leave it alone.
No remake, no squeals, no prequels

just leave it alone


Every damn time some dumb ass producers gets it into his head that he can take a classic movie and make something better it fails dismally.

Why do they not learn their lesson and stop doing this sort of thing.

They're also doing a movie on Red Riding Hood. It's basically what happens when someone decided to mix in a children's fairy tale with Twilight and add crack. I believe they're just running out of ideas for movies.

I doubt there's actually much shortage of ideas. Sequels and remakes are playing it financially safe in a time when there's a lot upheaval in the industry. You'll have to look at different markets than Hollywood, and even Sundance to some degree, to find more conspicuous risk taking.

Blame the people who approve the scripts to make the movies. =T

This gif as dumb as it looks pretty much sumarizes why Hollywood keeps copy and pasting movie plots
