It very much is, they are out of ideas, just like tv, hence all the reality shows

I would say the originality is still there. The audience is the dead part.

Original recent movies:
- Exit Through The Gift Shop
- Rubber
- Cloverfield
- The Beaver
- Sucker Punch

Original Recent Shows:
- Community

Ok...maybe you're right about tv.

They are not out of ideas, they are scared of doing anything new and original. There is plenty of creative people out there, they just won't come near them.

Wow, good to see them sort of getting out of this slump. Hopefully they can hold on and make for a very good Summer movie season.

That is, if audiences stop listening to the BS critics throw out there. Every person I know who saw Sucker Punch loved it. Critics destroyed it, which really affected its box office.

Critics cost the movie studios millions of dollars.
