Look To Netflix For The Answer To ‘What Do We Do When All Hollywood Has To Offer Is Reboots?’

This is a great description of where we are ... and an idea for how to look for fresh ways to deal with it: "To loudly insist that Hollywood cut it out with the reboots is, unfortunately, to waste your breath. It is, however, at least worth asking the question: If this is the world we’re stuck with, how should a reboot be? Some have begun to resemble something like the filmed equivalent of an oral tradition, passing down different versions of the same story over and over—at least while the story remains immediate. ... Our current options for 'best' Hollywood reboot are, at best, pretty good. (Batman Begins.) But a better North Star for reboots is out there, and its name is Blazing Transfer Students."
