Certain sequels I love. I am looking forward to the AVENGER movies, with Iron Man, Thor, Captain America. However, when they do a "from the start of the story" Spider Man...AGAIN, or Superman...AGAIN, or BATMAN...again (same story, slight twist, different actor)I lose all interest. I don't WANT to see the FIFTH or TENTH "young Spiderman". I think the ONLY movie franchise where different actors has been FUN (and fine) is BOND...JAMES BOND...007.

SO..what do you think? Has Hollywood lost it's creativity and is trying to make a buck rehashing endlessly old stories or should they give us something new???? (Who wants to see ROCKY 18, "Battle for the Nursing Home Remote")????

I like new stories that fit well into the time limit best

Hey, I'd TOTALLY watch "Battle for the Nursing Home Remote"!

Yeah, seems like there's a lot of sequels coming out lately. I generally prefer new movies, although I have had occasions where I preferred a sequel over the original.

As for whether a REBOOT to a series (rather than a sequel) indicates a lack of creativity, I think it just depends on how it's carried out. Sometimes it can be a good thing, if the original version wasn't so great. Other times, yeah, it can be a little annoying.

YES... I too am ready for some new movies! Although I must say Hangover 2 was fantastic... but once you start to get into 3, 4, 5+ sequels, it gets a bit repetitive.

As a general rule, I am strongly opposed to most re-makes and sequels. I love making movies and it's really frustrating to see that studios only fund things that have a built-in fan base and are more likely to make money instead of promoting original and new concepts.

That said, I'm extremely excited for the Avengers and Dark Knight Rises. I idolize Christopher Nolan and I think when you are taking a franchise in a completely different direction, it can make for a great opportunity to see the characters in a new light. Also, you can't let Batman & Robin be the last Batman film ever made.

Things like Spiderman and Superman piss me off. These are franchises that I personally think were never really that great to begin with, and nothing startlingly new is being done to improve their stories or characters. I hope I'm wrong about Spiderman, because I absolutely love Marvel and the Spider Man character. But I have no hope for Superman.

For the most part I'd rather see new movies, unless it is something like LOTR ect.

Still I'd rather have a sequel than a remake.

we talked a lot about this in my film classes.

i'm definitely pumped for Avengers.. Joss Whedon! <3

as for the new spider-man, i understand it's the AMAZING spider-man but c'mon! there has already been a spider-man franchise in this generation.. there's no need for another!

i'm a lover of indie films or film festivals because those are actually original screenplays and plots. The High Cost of Living is one that i've watched recently. zach braff and it's based in Montreal with real french! i love me some Canadian films!

I'm a bit tired of sequels and reboots. What I'd prefer is, rather than remake a movie or make an unnecessary sequel, that the movie people *replay* popular old movies in the theater. It was so cool to see the Wizard of Oz in the theater when they replayed that. There must be other beloved older movies that people would like to see on the huge screen.

It depends on the franchise. If it's one I like, and I know I'm getting something other than just more of the same, like The Hangover, then I'm all for it.

I don't care if it's a sequel or not, as long as they're interesting to watch.
