I used to get riled up. There used to be passion. Now, all I can do is shrug.
Maybe it’s growing up.
Maybe it’s wising up.
Maybe it’s something else.
But when I hear that Disney has acquired full rights from Paramount to make more Indiana Jones movies (or TV shows or video games or whatever plans they have), well… I don’t even know if I care.
Back in 2008, I sure did care. My review of Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was scathing. Passionate. Angry. I spent months agonizing over and trying to forget that crock of shit. I still suffer from PTSD from it.
It’s a world of sequels, prequels, remakes, adaptations, and TV spinoffs. None of this is really new. It’s sort of the way that Hollywood has always functioned, albeit today in different forms.
All this impending Star Wars news should be enough to get me going… but I feel a whole lot of nothing. I guess I’m just getting too tired of it all to get riled up about it anymore.
I think I’ll go read a book.
