This week, we’re complaining for about an hour because we heard they’re (Hollywood) remaking New Jack City. Now, many episodes ago, we talked about how the remakes/reboots/re-dos Hollywood execs have been putting in front of us to consume has to stop, but this (in our opinions) is going too far. We talked about some of our theories on why this seems to be the new wave in movie making and also gave some personal alternatives to doing remakes. Is this happening because it’s easier, safer and cheaper or is it what the public really wants and we’re just out of touch? Or is it happening because many of the newer creatives have found it damn near impossible to get funded and supported for original content and this is all that’s left? We gave our take on both of those questions and more.
