Half the so called New motion picture releases are rehashed stories. Yet Paramount nor any other studio pays for the rights they call it a original blockbuster and end of story.
You think for a split second New Line payed Jules Verne's or Jonathan Swifts descendants. Even though Journey 2: The mysterious island is an obvious crappy adaptation of their original stories.
According to their hippocracy anything they make should be off limits indefinitely. While they can steal and adapt anything they damn well wish. And to ultimately slap us in the face, by buying politicians to strip away our rights in order to meet their agenda.
The only thing these clowns understand is $$. If there was a movement to put a moratorium on visiting the box office renting movies, pay per view etc. If even for a single weekend. I think it would send them and incredibly strong message not to bite the goddamn hands that feed you.
At the very least it would be 9 figure message (U.S. alone) they would never forget
