Hollywood has OFFICIALLY run out of ideas

All the dirt. All the top secret stuff. Anything that has to do with the process of getting us to sit and watch something projected on the big screen.

WTF:
‘Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory’ is a Movie?
Hoai-Tran Bui wrote:This week in completely unnecessary ideas that you didn’t think were even possible, there’s a straight-to-DVD movie inserting Tom and Jerry into a shot-for-shot animated version of the 1971 Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Let that sink in. Because no matter how you try to convince yourself that it’s some bad trip, it’s real.

shame on you Butcher. this should be in the "Hollywood has run out of original ideas" thread.

why do they think we need a remake of a 20 year old film that was, itself, a remake of a 40 year old TV series? is there really a large audience out there clamoring for this property to return? i get that Hollywood wants to get more films with female leads and female directors and female-oriented action, and that there aren't exactly a lot of pre-existing properties that fill that bill... so why not come up with something original and new? is there any unexplored territory left in the concept of 3 hot crime-busting women working for an invisible boss?

And the series was rebooted again, on TV a couple years ago, and was cancelled after only a handful of episodes

Great News, Everyone! Tyler Perry’s Making Another BOO! A MADEA HALLOWEEN Movie
This is a great gift to the world.
EVAN SAATHOFF wrote:Everyone can go home now. This is going to be the best bit of news you hear all day.

Tyler Perry is making a sequel to Boo! A Madea Halloween. It will, of course, be called Boo 2! A Madea Halloween, and it’s coming out October 20. Of this year. I don’t know if it’s already in the can or what, but somehow this is how it’s going down.

Now, I realize most of you don’t actually think this is good news. I don’t know what to tell you except that you’re missing out on some outrageously weird shit. Like the last film, this probably won’t end up being a “real” horror film. But I also don’t know what else to call a film that has three Tyler Perry’s arguing the benefits of beating children in one giant, unbroken 20-minute-long scene.

With any luck, this will become our new annual Halloween tradition and one day all you haters will realize how great we have it. Just be happy for me, dammit.

I was actually going along with this article until I hit this:

"If you want an examination of what it means to be African American in society today, look somewhere else. I recommend Crash or perhaps The Blind Side."

You know, when I want to examine what it means to be African American in society today, I usually just ask my wife. And to think, all this time the answer was right in front of me in the form of shitty movies made by white people.

I stopped reading there and decided that the writer was being either facetious, has shit taste in movies, or is a white hipster douchebag who-- well, it IS birth.movies.death.

Five years on I wonder if he still loves Tyler Perry?
