Total Recall, Spiderman, Rambo, Rock Balboa, Dredd 3D, RoboCop, Man of Steel, Fantastic Four, The A-Team, 21 Jump Street, Star Trek, Conan, TMNT, The Mummy, The Karate Kid, Clash of the Titans, Batman, James Bond, and even Twlight. All movies. All reboots or soon to be reboots.
Nowadays as a filmgoer its been increasingly hard to find new and original material on the silver screen. More often than not I sit in the movie theater with my father and we see more than one trailer that he exclaims "Oh so they are remaking that?". I wonder if when I'm older and I take my kids out to the movies if I'l be exclaiming "Hey, they've made this movie about three times already. My dad saw the first version of this film 50 years ago!" I'm 26 years old and they have already done Superman, Batman and Spiderman over twice. Hulk has its third Bruce Banner in ten years. I was alive to see Judge Dredd and I'll be alive to see him again in Dredd 3D. Same goes for Godzilla, but that particular gem I'm not complaining about. I love that big green bastard.
I yearn for original material. Something that will surprise me. Something that I can't predict. Can Hollywood truly be out of directors and writers that have vision?
