Reboots, Revivals, Remakes, Sequels, and Spin-Offs

Why does Hollywood think that everything needs a sequel or a spin-off or whatever else Hollywood decides to do? The main reason: money. Why else would there be 5 Avatar movies,10 Fast and Furious movies, a Charmed reboot in works (please don’t). Fast and Furious should have ended after Paul Walker passed away. Plus the movies are all the same. 40-50 minutes of cars racing around the mention of ‘family’ about a billion fucking times.

As much as I would want a Firefly reboot, I know that if it happened, even if it had the same producers and directors, it wouldn’t be as amazing as the original. Example, The Mummy with Tom Cruise. Although the movie isn’t out yet, it doesn’t take a genius to know that this movie is going to bomb. There’s also a trend of having movies turn into TV shows. Taken, Training Day, and Lethal Weapon. Sorry to break it to you Hollywood, but we’ve already had a TV show like Taken. It was called Missing starring Ashley Judd.

Stop with the constant sequels and reboots and everything else. It’s unnecessary and it ruins the franchise.  I’ve got a lot more to say one this, but I’ll stop here. Why is it so hard for Hollywood to come up with an original idea?
