Hollywood cynicism is the phrase I´m using to describe big budget mainstream films created purely with sales in mind - Hollywood not putting business before art, but focusing on business without regard for film making as art or otherwise.

Here I take a look at the rise of the high-concept film and the reliance Hollywood now has on sequels and remakes.

Films Mentioned:

Cleopatra (1963), The Good, The Bad And The Ugly (1966), 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), Jaws (1975), Taxi Driver (1976), Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977), Stalker (1979), Ghostbusters (1984), Terminator (1984), Back To The Future (1986), Toy Story (1995), Spider-Man (2002), Iron Man 2 (2010), Avengers: Age Of Ultron (2015), Transformers: The Last Knight (2017), Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), The Emoji Movie (2017).
