Default Re: Has Hollywood Ran Out Of Ideas....

I believe it was Shakespeare who said there are really only 7 major plots, and every other story is a variation of a major theme. Frankly, I think he was right: most current Hollywood tales are either sequels or remakes of earlier versions. The last movie I saw was the indie "Good Night and Good Luck". I think the indie films are where it's at in US filmmaking.

I also enjoy foreign movies and documentaries for the same reason. If it's going to be a variation on a theme, at least it's a different variation on a theme!
