      There is indeed nothing new under the sun. Remakes of everything. Seems lazy to me.

        Hollyweird likes putting their bets on things that have a track record of popularity/profitability. That's why you get Rocky V2 and Fast and Furriers ∞ or something like that as well as the reboots.

          Yeah, and how many different ways can we do StarTrek and/or StarWars?

            Spin-offs are yet another example of same thing only different, but a good bit of the above are sequel/prequels.

                  Yeah, and he was, like, Gutfeld size.

                    They are "rebooting" Kung Fu too, again basically just reusing the name from the old show and not having any other connection as far as I can tell.
                    At least the last reboot was more of a century-and-a-half-later sequel, with Carradine playing his own great-grandson, or something.

                    And it featured Robert Lansing, and now we're back to the original Equalizer.

                      Not really. I vaguely recall a quick grappling move here and there. But he had various assistants, some of whom were skilled. And I think I recall him coaching his estranged son as he gradually became more involved in the "business."

                          Yes. To me, he did not appear as beefy in "Electraglide in Blue."

                          And of course there's this Gutfeld classic:

                                Talking about the movies. Seems like there is a new Batman every few years and then they start the whole schtick all over again. Each time it starts with the "origin" story, ad nauseum. Same with Superman, and Spider-man. How many times do we need to see their origin stories?
