      If you remade Gone with the Wind today the GOP would demand the South win.

      Maybe they did. We've been supporting their lazy as-ses for 150 years.

        It's been in the works multiple times. Rhonda Rousey was supposed to make it a couple years ago.

          I just do not understand how Hollywood doesn't get the "So bad, it's good" vibes that happen with movies. To achieve that, the conception has to be truly organic. It simply can not be recreated.

            They know they can manufacture interest through advertising and make money. A hit doesn't have to be good or enjoyable, it just has to be well-hyped.

                Yes and no...

                Sometimes hype isn't enough to trump everything. As a whole, moviegoers are pretty keen on blatant cash grabs, especially if they are not attached to a franchise.

                • Warner Bros has killed the Batgirl movie after spending 90 million on it. It will never be released apparently. So, they can claim the loss on their taxes is what I heard this morning.

                      I love that movie. MAD did a great parody of it.

                        They can? I am gonna disagree with you on that...half the films that come out are blatant cash grabs and do well enough to make money. You literally described half the successful comedies out there.

                        The film will cost almost nothing to make (unless they are stupid) and will have enough people see it to make a profit. That is all that matters. The film will legitimately suck but people will go just to see how much it sucks.

                          Rollerball was remade. It was about as good as the Speed Racer movie. In other words, it was a POS.

                          ChildWorld (movies since, let's say, 1995) should not remake movies, they only emphasize how infantile mass culture is. Movies and TV have completely switched places. TV is now subtle, complicated, and intelligent. Movies are now as shallow, stupid, and lowest-common-denominator facing as TV with the Big Three. Even the successful and beautifully made franchises that dominate sales now (MCU, Star Wars, LoTR) are intellectually and emotionally adolescent. Meanwhile TV, which used to be dumba-ss, suddenly has grown up themes, motivations, plots, and even acting.

                          • This has gotten pretty good reviews and might be worth a look see.
