Hollywood is so unoriginal these days. It's either a sequel, reboot, retelling, rehash, reimagining or "based on a true story". That's why I don't watch movies anymore, at least not the new ones, they're all corporate trash in my opinion. It's all about the bottom line instead of actual originality and taking risks.

couldn't agree with you more.

I guess after years of hiring people for sexual favors, family ties, and bribery has finally taken its toll on hollyweird and dc for that matter.

Despite not even being able to name a unique or movie to care much about that has came out as of late: Those types are not far from from using social conditioning on the masses.

Waiting for more alien/disclosure movies.

There are some good exceptions every year, even from Big Hollywood. That link above a good spot. Many others. At the awards / reviewers / box office though is a often a different animal.

Here their full list you cant see from that first link:
www.magnetreleasingfilms.com...

Its a good one shop stop to check in on every couple few months. To try to list specific other movies / rare & obscure film film radar methodologies, aside from just keeping a keen eye on bitorrent releases would be a chore.

The entire entertainment industry from music to film sees risktakers and originality as a liability. They are no longer interested in creating art. They need a product on the shelves making money RIGHT NOW! After it runs its course, throw it away and make another one just like it. Second verse, same as the first.

To be fair, they do that for many reasons. Movies have become so expensive that studios need to really justify putting out projects from a financial perspective. And it's a lot easier to do that when the characters and/or plot already have existing fan bases.

Sequels, reboots, and retellings obviously have public awareness of their plots and characters, meaning that more people are likely to have some connection with them (which increases the chance of ticket & merchandise sales). And "based on a true story" movies can have similar built-in audiences like a history-geek fan base, a "national and/or demographic pride" fan base, a general public that's been swamped with news reports about the specific events so much that they already know the basics of the story, etc.

Put it like this: if your company has $100 million to spend making a movie and desperately needed to make a big profit from it, which one is more likely to be successful for you? A sequel of a wildly popular movie, or a story with completely unknown characters and no proof that an audience will connect with it? Thousands of indie films come out on a regular basis that match up with the second option, yet what percentage of them are commercially successful?
