What happened to creativity? Have all the creative writers died and my generation is just too lazy to think up anything original? Are executives forcing cheap remakes to keep up the bottom line?
Part of me thinks I'm just being cantankerous before my time, especially when I go looking for information about this topic and I find a similar article in the Christian Science Monitor. All I have to do is think of Top Gun 2 and I realize I'm not being as irrational as I think I might be. Do we need a "Top Gun 2"? Couldn't you have made a fighter plane movie in this era without relating it to Maverick? Oh I forget, "Stealth" was such a epic failure that obviously it wasn't the poor plot idea or so-so acting, it was the fact Maverick wasn't in it.
