Empire of Cool?

Why is it that Hollywood seems intent at the moment to spew out sequel after sequel and remake, few of which ever live up to their forbears? The simple answer is money, but is this a deeper indication that creativity is running dry (in the west at least) or is this sort of pulp what people really want?

Interestingly enough no longer is the west the capital of cool. Bet you can’t guess where that title belongs to now? Sometimes it’s nice to know that your riding the wave! Comments welcome as ever 🙂
