  1. Great follow-up conversation on the “franchise funk” issue. A sequel to It’s a Wonderful Life!? Really!? That’s shameless.

    One of the last times I went to a movie (Star Trek Into Darkness), my friend and I were laughing, making fun of, and being offended by the idiocy of the trailers. Man of Steel was the only trailer we respected. (Of course, when I saw Man of Steel I ended up laughing at that movie. I had a mental breakdown of maniacal laughter once a fight sequence in Smallville bloated on for twenty minutes followed by three more hours of the same.)

    Anyway, the problem isn’t so simply resolved by saying we can look elsewhere besides Hollywood for our entertainment. Hollywood has the influence, the money, and the means. They can do things that no one else can.

    Therefore, I believe the problem goes deeper than where and what we put our time and money into. It’s an issue of not only an extreme monopolization but an issue of mass influence from a central source.
