Good, the last one was terribly bad!

Pretty much everything that is being delayed looks like garbage to me. Why don't these jokers start writing fresh original film material instead of all these wretched remakes and junky unnecessary sequels? It's insulting to the intelligence!

Surely a Mission Impossible would require no sequels ?

Because nobody watches those

People always say they want this, they want that - but they don't show up at the theaters. They don't vote with their wallets

We watched Mission Impossible. Held our attention throughout the movie.

Easily amused.

I don't like Hollywood. I prefer reading, cooking, listening to music and painting.

Really.

Villeneuve's Dune Pt1 was pretty good so looking forward to Pt2. As for the MI series, they've become like 007 films so it's expected there are sequels and they do deliver what audiences want. But I do agree that we don't need any more Marvel/DC/Star Wars because their quality has dropped.

There are a lot of non-blockbuster films that are being delayed and it will affect those that appear at alternative festivals such as Sundance. So it's not just the blockbusters that are affected.

The Star Wars movies since the originals, with the exception of Rogue One, have been meh. But the tv shows range from good to great. Ahsoka was only good, the mandalorian is really good, and Andor was great.

Marvel doesn’t hold interest for me. Neither does MI really even though I’ve probably watched them all.

Agree. Solo was watchable and I enjoyed it. My attention was held throughout so it must have been good.

Star Wars are Hollywood movie.

I don't like Hollywood.

What a strange response. It isn’t an either/or choice.

Criminy. How many "sequels" can Hollywood put out? Are there any actually new movies somewhere? The same stories, same same same, have become the main Hollywood productions. This is why I watch almost exclusively foreign films. Good stories, good actors, and fresh ideas. Really. Part 8? Why even? Will it stop? Or will there be a part 25? This is the same industry that made MAS*H ( the movie), The Graduate, Young Frankenstein, O Brother Where Art Thou, and hundreds of other terrific movies. With out parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14. . .

If you don't like it, don't watch it.

Matt - That's rather pointless statement. How about giving some reason why a person should sit through such movies. How about telling me why such movies are good. Maybe you could tell me why you like these movies. Convince me that continuous story lines are good?

I don't watch them. No one can explain the genius behind the madness. Try watching "Volver", or "Like Water for Chocolate", or "Babbete's Feast", and see if you like them. I bet you will.

Wallace, me too. Hollywood directors rely on style, structure, narrative and visual elements. This makes me gag.

No one “should” sit through any entertainment movie. They are purely watched by choice, and people who aren’t interested shouldn’t watch, so as to not artificially increase ticket sales.

In free countries people are free to watch movies or not based on their own whims. The profitability of the movie will reflect this, and if the people aren’t interested financiers won’t pay to make sequels. If people want to see it however, they will be profitable, and more will be made.

Anger at this is like being angry because someone chooses to put mustard on their hotdog and you don’t like it so you get angry at them for daring to eat something you don’t like.

Why? That’s like trying to tell someone they should put mustard on their hotdog even when they don’t like it. For what? To what end.

I don't watch them. No one can explain the genius behind the madness.

So don’t. No need to get angry about it. I don’t like zombie movies or marvel movies at all, so I don’t watch them ever. I also don’t get snotty and start telling people they are wrong for enjoying what they enjoy.

I have never seen these films, or in fact any other USA film, except one, The Equaliser. It was sooooo boring I stopped watching after 20minutes.
