At What Point Will Hollywood Implode?
Guest posted a topic in General BanterAnd by Hollywood, I mean "those huge companies like DreamWorks and LionsGate that keep churning out big-budget movies." I hap'd upon this article while newsing my morning read: So there is a goddamn re-make re-boot of Conan The Barbarian, now. In 3D. There will be sequels. Its main competition is a goddamn re-make of Planet of the Apes. And do I really need to comment on "Spy Kids 4"? You damn dirty producers. Myself, I am really looking forward to the re-make of Blade Runner. These "big" films have eaten all the food in the fridge, all the canned goods, and even that last scary can of Manwich that's bulging with botulism. Then they still wanted more, so they began eating the formica countertop, then the walls. At this point, they are devouring the foundation beams that keep their penthouse apartment on the top floor. Someday, there will be a re-make of "The Graduate," and the movie that re-launched cinema in '67 will complete the circle and finish it off. Drama aside: Can it go on like this? Will big-budget films continue to exist in their current form? Is Hollywood too big to fail?
