The only reason I brought up the video wasn't to prove that Star Wars, Terminator, or Ghostbusters was high art. Nor was it to prove that Hollywood hasn't always been doing things like those. Seems like a lot of you either missed the point I was trying to make or could actually point to a reason why the logic might not be valid instead of knee jerk reactions. If you got something you can point out that I might be misunderstanding, I'll be happy to listen and correct my mistake. I'm not some sperg who'll insist my view is objective and demand you follow it.Lol that video is so dumb for starters stuff that gets remade is usually popcorn entertaiment : terminator , ghostbusters and star wars are not high art or cultural milestones and the dumbest part of this whole concept is that hollywood has always done this, is not a recent thing
I don't know, I'm not one of those who say "ah the good old days of having to walk miles to the nearest ATM" when I can just easily transfer cash from my phone now, but the fact that ATMs even existed as opposed to not was also already an improvement. I think things are a little different in terms of how we've changed. Personally, I'm a little skeptical on the fanbase you're talking about. Unlike the prequels, I think the merchandises doesn't seem to be selling as much as it should. There's plenty of Disney SW stuff no one is buying. The kiddies doesn't seem to excited about this particular set of trilogy either, at least from the ones I've seen.It's just part of getting older and more cynical. Older people in the 80's and 90's probably thought those decades sucked too. And so on as you go back farther. Wait about 15 years..the new Star Wars movies will get the fanbase the prequels started to get a couple years back from people who liked them as kids. And yes, it's going to happen.
I'd rather not keep going on about SW though, it's not the thread for it.
