I have to say, there have been a lot of amazing movies over the years. And there have been a lot of well, not so great movies too which somehow have developed cult followings. When I was younger, I was a massive TV buff. I would watch everything.

These days sadly I barely watch TV. I just can't find the extra time. I watch TV series off the internet but when it come to movies, it barely happens. Whenever I get an offer to go see a movie at the cinema, I always find a way to wriggle out of it. I have seen maybe 7 or 8 new movies start to finish in almost 2 years.

It seems to me however, that Hollywood has been doing a lot of recycling these days. Old movies are being resurrected, under the guise of sequels & remakes. Some of the biggest movies from the last few years were all movies previously known and LOVED.

Movies like Mad Max, or more recently Independence Day have been resurrected after over 20 years. Might be a gimmick to get the older folks who saw those movies back then, to want to see them now and get the younger ones to see it too. Not exactly wrong.

But is the audience being exploited? Are the older ones sort of tricked into watching this movies as a ploy to get them to get some pieces of their lives back via memories? Are people enjoying the movies because they were already accepted? Is it more difficult for newer movies to gather followings these days, due to a lot more competition between the cinema and maybe social media? Are the younger ones unknowingly forced to accept these movies to bridge that generational gap?

Or are the studios, producers and scriptwriters just generally lazier?

Might be with regards to the focus on the environment, Hollywood has decided to save resources and just recycle. Cheaper, Easier and a lot more Money.
