[READ AND ANSWER EACH QUESTION AND WATCH THE VIDEOS BEFORE YOU ANSWER THE QUESTIONS OR YOU WILL GET ZERO CREDIT] 

The current trend over the past several years has been to make what was once old, new again.  What I mean is properties that I watched as a kid are what are being turned into movies for a new generation of kids.  From G.I. Joe, to Transformers, to Yogi Bear to The Smurfs to The Thundercats, Voltron, Rom SpaceKnight, Conan The Barbarian, He-Man and the list goes on and on….Why are there no FRESH ideas in Hollywood?

A)  If you ANALYZE the current trend, why do you think HOLLYWOOD thinks old school comics and TV shows are what YOU want to see?

B)  How could Hollywood do a better job of finding out what the public TRULY wants to see?  Tell me your opinion.

    a) i think becuase it can be changed for more popular time and your parents would be intersested in it too just to see how it use to be to compare it .
    B) go look at the stats on movies and see what people watch the most and then they can just recreate that movie again or throw some new changes in it

    A.) they think that because that is what they like back in the old days so they think that if they remake it that younger people today will wanna watch the stuff that has all ready been out but they will add a couple of new things.

    b.)i think that they could do better by actually going to and asking people what they want to see… and what they really wanna watch.

    A). they think that because these cartoons used to be popular back then but if you make it in to a movie it looks cool in person or real in the movie.

    B). i think they could a public vote on something in what they want to see just mail it or list it something to see what the people want to see. and then they may want to see it more.

    A.] Maybe they think that because maybe that’s what they want to see, for example when i want something i act as if everybody else likes it to but in reality not everybody likes the same things.

    B.] I think the way HOLLYWOOD can actually find out what we like is to do sort of like a voting, to see who likes what the most for example you could put action, romance,comedy,science fiction,animation,drama, etc. Then the people would vote to see what they like the best and they could list movies as well.

    A)Because they think that the old shows will be a big hit every were. They know old fans will go see all of the old Shows become a great movie.
    B)I think they should ask people what they like in movies. Or just ask what they think in making a old TV show of an old comic book in to a movie. You will find out what people what in movies.

    A.) I think that hollywood is trying to bring back the old tv shows and put them in theaters and to make them better like more funnier or different characters in the newest making of the films than the original.

    B.) They could get hollywoods interviewers and have them walk around hollywood boulevard and ask the public what they want to see in theaters today and if they thinks its a good idea to remake old tv shows

    A. I think Hollywood thinks old school comics and TV are what kids want to see because older people talk about how cool and awesome older TV shows are and they want to show there kids, so Hollywood found a way to make this happen and kids just so liked older stuff so Hollywood continued making it!

    B. Hollywood can do a better job of founding out what the public really wants to see by Surveying the public and hearing the public’s feedback about how they feel towards different types of shows.

    A.) I think they are making old TV shows and Movies back again is because they was so popular a long time ago that they will think it would be popular once again.

    B.) I think they should make new movies about peoples favorite TV shows. They can find out what is the most popular TV show and make it into a movie. Also, they could find out the most popular singer, actor, actress, or people in TV shows, they could make a movie with them in it.

    A) because they will get more money not only kids will go see it but adults will to because they liked watching that in the old days.

    B)if they do a survey on movies like they count how many people came to see that movie.

    A.) Because old people talk about the old shows they used to watch and some kids think that they seem cool so people try to make the old school shows more up to date so that both old and young people can watch them so its not just getting the old people attention its getting old peoples to which is going to make them a lot of money instead of just a little from the old people.
    B.) Hollywood could do a better job by asking what everyone wants to see and by making all the things they want to see combine them all together in a movie so it has a little bit of everything instead of just what the older people want of what the younger people want of what the middles aged people want they could make them come all together and attract a lot of people to come see the movies that they want to see

    A.) I think that Hollywood makes older movies because for a lot of people that brings back memories for when they where kids. Its also a good way to pull in younger kids because they love cartoon movies.

    B.) In my opinion they should take surveys to see what other people would like to see hit the movies. I think their doing a great job right now ! I seem too love all the new movies that had came out ! Also the previews are really good to they want you to go see it.

    A. I think that they might think that it will still work now, because that was what worked for kids in the past generations. They probably think if they change it a little, and make it like a movie, it’ll be just as popular now.

    B. They might be able to do a better job of finding what the audience really wants to see if they take a survey. Also, they might be able to see what people watch most at movie theaters, or rent on DVD, or buy on DVD, to see what are top sellers. That will make it easier for them to see what they can make more of a profit off of.

    A) i think that Hollywood probably thinks that the comic things fro the past years are like to old for people to watch now days so they create new ones that make the characters seem real instead pf cartoonic.

    B) i think that if Hollywood really cared about what the public wants to see they would take a vote on what movies the people really want to see like the could create a website and put different movies that people could vote for.
    i think that they don’t really care about what people want to watch they just simply put the movie out there.

    a. i think its a current trend because the stuff you guys had watched back then is interesting. and the movies they were making was all the same stuff. with this generation both parents and kids could enjoy the movie and the creators of the movie are able to make them better 🙂

    b. hollywood could have a website and then ppl could go on there and have there opinions stated on wat they would like to see in the future. they could give directors ideas on what movies would be good for us. because we all want something new to see that excites us !

    A. I think because they want us to feel what yall felt when yall watch those movies. Also cause they are revising and making them better, and tring to catch our attention, making us wanting to watch them.

    B. I think that they can make up a test ask people questions about thier favorite movies they like to see: romantic, comedy, action, scary .. ect. They can also go out on the streets and ask people personally for thier opinions.

    A. I think HollyWood thinks old TV shows and old school comics are what i want to see is because movies and showa back then they used to be really good and people all over the world used to love them. So when HollyWood comes out with remakes of old shows people will be excited and want to go see it because the movie or show they watched before the remake they must have loved it. Also people used to think they were very funny to watch.

    B. HollyWood could do a better job with knowing what the public want to watch because all they have to do is do a little chart with percents of what the public likes to watch like a horror film, comedy, mystery, action, romance, and etc. This would be a good way to see what the public likes to watch and also for HollyWood to see what kinds of movies or shows that they could come up with next.

    A). I think that Hollywood thinks that old school comics and TV shows are what we want to see because these movies might have been so good back then, and if they use their new technology, they can make it better and think that more kids will like it since its improved.

    B). Hollywood can do a better job on what we (the public) really wants to see possibly by when the new versions (of the old movies) go out in movies or in theaters, see how many people buy the tickets, and compare the data from when kids use to watch it, to how many kids watch it now. They can also see if it becomes a top seller when it’s sold in stores.

    A) i think that Hollywood thinks that the shows and comics from the past are way too old for people to watch them now days in the present. my opinion about this is that Hollywood should care more about what the public wants to watch.

    B) i think that Hollywood could probably make a website and take a vote on what people wan to watch now days. besides i don’t really think that Hollywood really care about what the people want to watch this days.

    A) BECAUSE since a lot of people used to read the comics and would like them to come out in movies like the comics of marvel that everyone read like Hulk, Iron-man or Thor they started as comics.

    B) they could ask kids cause if a kid likes a movie they’ll ask the parents to take them or for action movies they can go to adult it goes like on age.

    B) I think they should do a survey on the people their self to see what the people would like to watch and enjoy. Instead of Hollywood making all these boring movies that people would watch. Because now and days they make all the boring movies and people wouldn’t want to watch them.

    a) maybe because, that we always imagined what our parents and grandparents watched. we wonder and want to watch what they did to see if there cooler and better and sometimes they are like GI -Jo and transformers! that is one great movie.!
    b) maybe you can go on the streets take a survey put on the computer ads books magazines newspaper to, show and get them to vote and comment on what you want they want to see and what they like whatevr gets the most votes and go from there!

    A) The generation before kids are still around. There are mostly those people in this world that know about those old shows. So, because of that, they can get more audiences to enjoy and get money from.

    B) They already did what I was going to say. I was going to say that they can entertain kids by putting a modern day effect in the movies. Transformers have today’s army and technology in the movie. I say that Thundercats may have some modern day technology if it can.

    Part A; The people in Hollywood are using old idea’s because back in the day they had really good TV shows so they think sense allot of people back then liked them and they had allot of viewings then maybe if they remake it and add some 2011 in it, then it would be better than before and sense people liked it before then they would see the new stuff.

    Part B; They can take a survey {Like we learned in math class} sense many people use the internet so they can put a survey up.

    A) I think that the new trend is really in style because everyone seems to like it and if there getting hits than obviously there’s people that like it.
    The old trend, 25% of people like it because some people don’t like change and would prefer the old but, its a what side has the most, old or new. My opinion is new because its more graphic and detailed and is more of a idea to watch and there interesting.
    B) I think Hollywood should just keep doing there job and finding more awesome effects and inventions cause i love all there movies so obviously there doing a good job, but if they feel there’s a group of people that like the old they need to try to get people to take surveys and see so they can fix it.
