I am. I’m tired of seeing Batman, Batman vs Superman, Batman vs Spiderman. I’m especially sick of seeing Batman origin movies popping up every damned year. I’m pretty tired of all superheroes. I want a good sci fi film, but not Star Wars or Star Trek. I want to see something new, fresh and uncopied, underived, unstolen. I don’t want to see anymore unimaginative bullshit modern filmmakers call new. I’m tired of seeing new versions of old crap done over and over again. I want new stories from someone’s imagination, not redos, reboots, revisits, sequels, prequels or anything that even has a hint of what’s been done already. I’m also tired of time travel, terminators, transformers and large fracking robots of all kinds. I want an idea that hasn’t even been inspired by anything going on today. I don’t want to see doomsday garbage anymore and I especially don’t want to see anymore fracking zombies, vampires, invading aliens or any of the modern viral apocalypse scenarios in pop culture today. I also don’t want to see stupid martial arts, with people performing moves that are impossible in the real world. I don’t want to see mysticism, magic or films based on religious scripture. I don’t want to see anymore bloody war movies and I definitely do not want to see Arnold Schwarzenegger anymore inside or outside a damned tank.
Okay, now that I got that out of the way, I can move forward. Isn’t anyone else tired of the same things repeatedly passed off as a new when they most certainly are not? Are writers lazy, or do producers simply have their heads shoved up their money-entitled butts? Yes, there are new ideas out there, but they’re very rare. I’m not convinced that everything that can be thought has been. In a universe as unimaginably immense as ours you would think that there would be no limit to what we can imagine. Years ago I watched a film called “Franklin”. It was a European movie that was quite a mind screw. I cannot describe it, and even if I could I would never do it justice. I just saw another one called “Tomorrow Land” and it was quite enjoyable and kinda new. But these only tease my mind, I want more, crave more and deserve more and so do you.
Here’s a novel idea… how about a movie based on an alien race without any damned humans in it. The aliens can’t be bipedal either. In fact, screw limbs entirely. Show me a way of life so alien to anything we’ve ever experienced on this Earth, and a form of reproduction that doesn’t involve anything we’ve ever seen or imagined before. Show me something that will truly blow my mind and open my eyes to something I never even dreamed was possible. Take me to a world far from here, show me creatures that push my mind beyond sanity. Make me a film so cool, so not done before that it will keep me awake all night because I can’t stop thinking about it. Make me say “woah” and sit there in awe with my mouth hanging open.
That’s what I want.
