The Spiral of Shit

by Gunther Heinrich, 2 Jun 2009 in The Movie & Me

You know, slowly but surely Hollywood is starting to be a pain in the ass. Ok, I am the first one to scream, ohm write that moviemaking is risky. A Producer can lose money faster than one might think but it is getting overboard because there are simply too many sequels, remakes and prequels in the works.

As to this sequel madness the last weeks were especially entertaining. Many news made their way to the movie blogs and hence to my RSS reader and there was once a point when I started to believe that this whole thing is a big single joke:

Is it just me, or is the number of sequels rising constantly?

I know, I am the first one writing that money has to be made and a movie production is risky. Just some posts ago (which feels like ten years in real time) I stated that sequels are a wise investment decision. Yet it is getting out of hand, isn’t it?
