This is so true and it’s terrifying
I gotta say, I watched the Rockos Modern Life reboot special on Netflix today and was HIGHLY disappointed
@Not him again, crap, i was looking forward to that
@Not him again, I’m guessing it was more pc than the original?
@AceWolf456, @Dephenistrator, not only was it really PC, but the whole thing was based around transgender acceptance. My advice, if you liked rocko as a kid like I did, don't bother watching it.
And the dumbest part was a lot of it revolved around original creators of a show doing a reboot and not changing it, and that's exactly what they did, so it was basically a huge fvck you to everyone
@Not him again, the amount of things ruined to political correctness is becoming a cultural tragedy of our time.
thanks for telling us
@Dephenistrator, I figured I'd save as many as possible from the disappointment. I figured it wasn't going to compare to the original. None rarely do, but to go THAT far off the scale... I almost didnt even watch the whole thing
@Not him again, i can't tell you in words how much this saddens me.
@Dephenistrator, sorry I had to ruin it, but I figured it would be better to find out this way than to actually sit through the disappointment. They did a fair job of giving tribute to all the random characters, but the premise just ruined it.
It's all good if someone wants to make a show about things like that, but don't put it in a show where it never belonged in the first place
@Not him again, exactly
Should've been a Disney building
@MrGrey89, seriously, next decade they will redo all the movies again in 4D VR or whatever comes out
How dare he respect Hollywood with his original ideas
Okay, but you do realize, some of the movies you put on a pedestal were reboots/sequels themselves?
@Suicide Squad Sucks, Cheaper By The Dozen, The Parent Trap, etc.
I think hollywood or the movie branch in general reached an equilibrium where the amount of original content perceives a bit more than one generation thus by redoing the content they have already done before, they have an awareness of its success aswell as a new audience, the younger generation. By doing so they can mostly avoid the risk of failing and avert a netto loss. There is no big competition either, which means no need to change tactics or to innovate. Internet media companies do only comepete in a certain niche and bollywood does not compete for the same consumers. They simply can stick to the safe formula which promises a gain in the end. I bet, that we will see a third wave of remakes and reboots of the same classics they are doing now in 10-20 years. Of course there will be some attempts to bring out something original. But most of the times its simply too riskful for the director or studio that may loses financial gain or reputation.
Unless your name is Christopher Nolan
