... gods help us. Is Hollywood really this creatively bankrupt?

Money is in established franchises. Somebody could try to adapt "Eyes of the Overworld" but folks would likely make fun of the stilted dialogue and the funny character names, and there's not enough of a following to carry such a film through to financial success. Word around the Web is that there's a series adaptation of "The Black Company" coming, which will probably flop, seeing as that series doesn't have the following or the drama of George Martin's stuff.

I don't think the problem is that Hollywood is creatively bankrupt, as it's more of a money machine for creative folks that it has confidence in, and there are always tons of creative people out there. Maybe Hollywood is a bit top-heavy with their funding, and overly cautious, but if they weren't blowing hundreds of millions on projects that flop, maybe they'd be more willing to take risks.

Not really (creative bankruptcy), as it's a studio project since they had bought Midway and looking to move their newly acquired IPs to their already established media. So expect more Midway games to appear on the big screen. Besides as much as one may complain about video game movies in general, I personally can't as it's actually a pretty fun watch.

If it is a fun watch then it does not matter what inspired it.

Then get off your fat ass and make something that we can all watch. And originality is way overrated.

There are plenty of original films being made, but they're more of a gamble than adding The Rock into an existing property.

If people went to see more "creative" (for want of a better description) films, then Hollywood would make more of them.

Or the OP could get off his fat ass, stop whining and give us some creative movies.

Yes because I don't write movies for a living I have no right to criticize. Think about how stupid your statement sounds and come back to me.

This public bathroom is filthy! Well get off your fat ass and clean it!

This food at this restaurant is burnt! Well get off your fat ass and cook it yourself!

These roads have too many potholes! Well get off your fat ass and fill them up!

The lawn at the park needs to be better kept. Well get off your fat ass and mow it!

There's too many drug dealers in this neighborhood. Well get off your fat ass and bust them!

I'm trying to motivate you, dude. That's the last time I do anyone here any favours. And you got off your fat ass and typed that crap didn't you...

What a surprise that your comment makes no sense. I was trying to teach you how moronic your previous comment was and you come back with another inane comment insinuating that it was you doing me the favor. I might as well be communicating (if it can be called that) with a Dunning-Kruger flat earther. But yeah pal, you sure showed me the light. :rolling_eyes:

You're a humourless backwards inbred that can't take a joke if his slap head's life depended on it.

Oh, that was a joke? MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! Oh gosh you are SO funny! MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You have me in stitches! You must do this for as living. Seriously are you like, a stand up comic or something? :rofl: Man, you're funny. Another one please. Well at least you have a license to criticize humor. I, on the otherhand, cannot. I will just sit on the sidelines and go "Umhmm" on a board meant to express your dislikes and likes about films and ideas because that makes TOTAL sense.

Okay, you can shut the fuckk up now. It was a joke if I really wanted to hurt you verbally you'd know about it, Mr Nazi.
