Many believe that Hollywood has become too reliant on sequels in the last several years. A lot of the new movies released seem to be sequels from previous blockbusters. This has left audiences with less variety when it comes to new films. Major movie studios need to search for more talented writers than can develop new ideas for movies that have not been made before.
Hollywood is not interested in creativity and novel ideas. The studio heads want to make billions. They are purely driven by money and will remake a remake if it means record profits. They control the ads, the stars in the film and the hype. It's a form of trickery to get the audience excited and spending money. Many times the poor audience hit the theater after being sucked in, only to find disappointment.
While I realize that as time goes on, it becomes harder and harder to come up with a movie idea that has not already been done, I am annoyed by the fact that so many "new" movies lately are sequels. Not only do I crave new ideas, but I feel that some movies were just too perfect to add to.
Yes, Hollywood relies on sequels too much. Sometimes, the film industry makes sequels of movies that the story already was finished after the first one. This means that movie choices are often limited to choosing between several bad sequels instead of experiencing a new story all together. The movie experience is thus less than it used to be.
