Default Am I the only one? (INV movie related)

Am I the only one that just rolls their eyes and thinks Hollywood has lost any semblance of originality each and every time another comic book/graphic novel movie comes out?

Seriously though INVs, how many Batmans, Hulks, Spider-Mans, Sin Cities, Transformers, xmen, Wolverines, Thors, Avengers, Iron Men, Green Lanterns, Supermen et al do we need? What is the draw to these movies aside from cgi and huge 'splosions? Hot chicks are in every movie so don't give me that.

Disclaimer: I *** with Nolan Batman series.

B/c they are kids movies and kids don't want to watch "old" movies, so they are constantly making new versions. If you are an adult and complaining about it, then these are not the 'films' for you.

It seems like these movies are targeted heavily towards adults. It's not 11 year olds lining up for Wednesday midnight showings bruh.

I miss 90s movies. Harrison Ford. Tommy Lee Jones. Wesley Snipes. Denzel. Morgan freeman. Ashley Judd. Tom Cruise. Samuel l jackson. Bruce Willis. This was the best time for movies.

I can get into IronMan and Batman....but some of the other movies are TURRIBLE.
But I look at it as though they're releasing new comic books with new storylines/villains.

But Spiderman has me all confused. Why the **** would you start all over again with a different Spiderman character? Continue the story, who ******* cares if thew actor changed? No need to start back from scratch......

I don't know when the "best" time was but I agree with you. Those movies had plots. All those Clancy movies were good. SLJ in A Time to Kill got me right in the feels. Where is the originality?

Yeah that's why I made this thread. I would think the same story line of innocent dude from outer space/that got bit by a bug/was mutated etc. comes upon fucked world, meets hot girl, hot girl in peril, splosions and **** to save hot girl all wrapped in **** pie acting would get boring after a while. I guess it doesn't or they would stop making these movies.

I was just wondering if I was in the majority or minority when it comes to my feelings on these movies.

Why don't you quit complaining and make your own ******* movies then? You make it sound easy enough.

I agree with the OP, but it's easier to crank out CGI crap fests every year than it is to write original and compelling stories. As long as it is profitable I don't see it ending any time soon.

Super hero movies don't interest me at all, but what's even worse is when they **** all over a classic franchise with a gritty reboot that has been designed from day one to appeal to the lowest common denominator. Ugh.

Brb going to create Hollywood studio and acquire tens of millions in funding.

It was easy in the 80s and 90s. And albeit few and far between there are still a few movies now with a plot.

Why would they stop making them - or any other genre? Pick any genre you want and the stories have all been done before. When should we say when? or why? Should we say, hollywood, stop right there. That's ENOUGH!

Don't worry bro, I don't. I can tell you are getting heated. I would like to ask that you please take your own advice as well. Don't like threads talking negatively about craptastic comic book movies, don't click.

I'm just asking if people share my opinion. You clearly don't. That's cool. Go sneak off and give yourself a handje or something to relieve this tension you are experiencing.

P.S. We coo?

No you have a point. But it's not like there are 800 Italian Job like heist movies coming out each year like graphic novel/comic movies.

I think malix is right. These comic book movies are created to cater to the least common denominator to sell. It's cool. I'm glad there is choice. Like I said, I'm just wondering if anybody else that craves actual stories rolls their eyes each time a new comes out. Don't take it personal.

I thought teenage mutant ninja turtles was so awesome when the movie came out. I didn't read any of the comic books OP mentioned.

They make more comic book movies now because nobody reads comics. It's the only outlet they have left - well, besides video games and toys...and underoos.

I was a HUGE Marvel/Batman fan growing up, so I enjoy seeing the movies.
YES, Hollywood is stuck in a regurgitating loop and desperately need to come up with something original!

On the other hand, Disney/Pixar movies are almost the best movies to watch nowadays!

Rocknrolla FTW


Good movies don't sell, period.

Plot + Character Development = Little profit

Explosions + Megan Fox = Huge Profit



I blame the general population not the movie studios.

Just like I blame shitty #swag #yolo kids for Lil' Wayne being popular.

Just like I blame my wife for Kardashians being popular...

Before the internet the only people who could critique works of art were people in the business, Gene siskel, Ebert etc. Fast forward to today the internet has given people with very little knowledge of how the industry works a platform to bitch and moan like a woman going through her 7 bleeding cycle. Seems to me it's going to get worse but what can you do?
