Point Break: Proof Hollywood Has Gone To Shit?

Postby Scotty on Sat 30/May/15 7:27am

Hollywood has rustled my jimmies.



Oh christ, everything about this is cringe-worthy. "They're extreme athletes, like me..."

YOU WANKERS. One of the enjoyable parts of the original movie's plot-line was how Utah was a crap surfer and he had to learn how to surf in order to get in tight with the baddies.



I hate this movie more than anything else I've seen come out recently and I haven't even seen it yet.

Then I started thinking about what other movies would elicit such a response from me.

So hear me Hollywood, this is Scotty's do-not-fuck-with list.

1. Fight Club - Really? I have to explain this?
2. The Crow - Oh wait, they're already doing that...
3. Natural Born Killers - I think we're pretty safe here. It's too insane and scary for the brain-dead clowns who call the shots these days to even approach it.

Anyone care to add to the list?

That looks dreadful. I'm surprised they had the budget to not just make more comic book movies :hmmm:

I guess that's the problem, while they should probably be applauded for not going down the comic book route, it sucks they had to mess with such an iconic film.

...or rather, they didn't, they just made something similar then appropriated the name. :hmmm:

You need proof that Hollywood has lost the plot? (Ha see what I did there).

Those dicks are so risk averse that even if they managed to come up with an original idea it would never make it to screen. So they are left with rehashing the good old oldies, making sorry arse adaptations of the Oprah must read book lists, or doing the only thing that actually sometimes works in the Hollywood context, making films out of comic books - and comics only work because they are all about visuals and epic plots.

One of the best films I have ever seen, Primer, was made for about $7000USD. Hollywood needs to realise that if you throw tons of money at shit you just get expensive shit.

I for one am looking forward to a remake of Heat starring an electric showdown between Channing Tatum and Matt Damon.

No point hating Hollywood for being Hollywood. They'll keep churning out expensive, unimaginative dross but the occasional gem sneaks through.

There are still plenty of people churning out $7000 films and there's always the crazy Europeans.

As for cheesecake, it's fantastic. Except for Sara Lee, she can GTFO.
