One phrase:

Star Wars prequels.

I'm afraid the link at the link goes to a different article.

On topic: It's not technology, it's greed. Most people who make movies are greedy, and that means they are not going to risk losing money. So they go with formula and precedent. Which usually works.

But the real successful stuff often break the mild. It's just that suits don't usually have the balls for that.

"Has Hollywood Murdered the Movies?"

Short answer: Yep.

And yes, Romantic Heretic, it's pure greed. Greed is what motivates the endless stream of mostly crappy sequels and prequels we see ad nauseum because most of the studio suits would rather play it safe than try to go for originality...

I think there's still some good movies out there. But yes, I do think that technology has been overused at the expense of new ideas. But to me the greater problem is the reliance on remakes and sequels.

Brilliant Page! I have got to get LeftWingConspirator to chime in. He has very interesting insights as a man working in "the industry" as they call it around here.

Take Lawless for example. Made for only 15 million, 1/20th of what they are spending on the Lone Ranger with Johnny Depp. Great cast, period piece and plenty of good dialog. The studios are good distributors, but they are choking creativity out.
