Hollywood really has made a mess of entertainment and storytelling.

And it doesn't have to be that way.

There are so many people with new, fresh ideas, yet they choose to keep redoing the same old. concepts.

The people want more and better and it is possible

Nobody needs 167 sequels done poorly!


Redditor MainCrab1383 wanted the entertainment industry to listen up!!

They asked:

"What do you wish Hollywood would stop doing?"

I wish they would give more chances unknowns. Every known starts an unknown, you know.

It was already great!

"Remakes of good movies, I don’t understand why they remake good movies, when there are tons of flops that have potential, that they could remake."

Not Real

"Characters getting punched multiple times in the face in 1 scene and having no signs of the trauma in the next scene."

kyle158

"Or shot, but they remove the bullet in a dirty motel and sew it up with freaking twine and knitting needles so now it doesn’t hurt anymore and they can go fight more bad guys unencumbered."

Parking_Aerie4454

"This reminded me of characters getting absolutely wasted then either being relatively sober in the next scene, or have no hangover the day after."

Lights Up!

"Stop making films and TV shows that we cannot see because they are too dark and cannot hear what TF people are saying. That would be a good start."

No-Abrocoma-381

"I honestly think some vfx engineers stuffed up and others thought it was a trend and continued to underexpose. Series 8 of game of Thrones was about 8 slightly diffident blank pixels running about the screen."

Procedure-Minimum

Fill her up!

"EMPTY CUPS. I hate seeing people holding cups and pretending to take drinks from obviously empty cups. Their hands never move right, or if it’s an open cup, you can literally see that it’s empty."

undecyded

"They move their hand way too fast! It's like they don't even know they're supposed to be pretending it has liquid inside."

"Casting attractive people in ‘ugly’ roles."'

"Like when the obviously gorgeous person gets a makeover."

Casting is subjective... so they say.

"Showing incorrect CPR."

"Just do what the AED tells you to do. No thinking required."

that scene....

"Forcing a love story that makes no sense in a movie that has nothing to do with romance."

Jesuslovesmemost

"Long kisses in the middle of a 'we're running out of time' scene. We gotta save the world, but let me take my time to say goodbye/goodluck first."

aldhibain

"Long kisses after a death defying scene. Sure, kissing is what they do next."

Busy-Appearance-6077

Makes no Sense

"Having a main character whose job/income level does not match their home or lifestyle at all."

Stellathewizard

"I was about to say that Charlie’s shi**y apartment in 'It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia' is the one exception to that rule I can think of. But oddly enough his roommate, Frank, is a millionaire."

FlowRiderBob

"Supposedly when they started making Big Bang Theory they tried putting them in a realistic apartment, and it made it really depressing."

Hrothen

WTF?!

"Adapting stuff into live-action movies when they should really be animated. Examples include upcoming Mega Man, Pac-Man and Minecraft movies which are ALL set to be live-action."

TheChainLink2

"I had no idea that any of these movies were in the works. Pac-Man will be half CGI, NO doubt. Going the Sonic route. Unless they literally just have it as an inspiration, and it's just a guy in yellow running away from ghosts in a labyrinth."

"Minecraft? Well, everyone will watch it, so I'm sure they don't care if it's good. But it's clearly going to focus on Steve building a nether portal and trying to kill a f**king dragon. Mega-Man? Yeah, I can see that working live action. Oh wait, it's a Netflix Original? Yeah, no. That's going to be absolute trash."

Maxtrix07

ID please?

"Casting 35 year olds as high schoolers."

StaircaseRailing

"Can we add casting 16-18 year olds to play 11 year olds?! Priah Ferguson was 16 when she played 11 year old Erica Sinclair in Stranger Things season 4. WTH!?"

A Nice Mix

"I wish Hollywood would stop treating the medium of animation as something inherently inferior to live action. I also wish 2D animation was used more for movies."

LunarWingCap

"I completely agree! There’s a unique magic in hand drawn animation. I’d even appreciate a mix of 2D/3D or animation and live action."

ArtbySV4151452

"They also should stop calling animation a genre, it's not a genre, it's a medium, as you said." ~ SvenNeve

Save the Kids

"Treating child stars like crap."

my_gender_is_a_glock

"I was watching a YouTube video about Dan Schneider. Apparently Nickelodeon chose Florida to film their shows because of the lack of child labor laws. They also purposefully chose kids whose parents were more likely to be absent or neglectful so they could control the kids more. Like wtf."

SavannahInChicago

No Execs

"All great answers but what I've seen lately is just a lot of whacky decision making. There's multiple video game adaption movies and TV shows come out lately that miss the mark completely. Resident Evil/Halo Etc."

"I know adaptations always have their quirks and things that would outrage a fan base but geez. The Halo TV show really felt like they just wanted to write their own story with already existing characters. It all comes down to executive decision."

"I just wish the creators have more control over their projects. Instead of having execs with no creative abilities suggesting 'Maybe you should make the super-soldier get out of his augmented power armor and instead just fight naked, also make him want to bang the enemy like Romeo & Juliette.'"

Bad Moves

"Shaky cam action fight scenes. No this is not artistic. Your choreography just sucks and you have to hide it."

edwadokun

Speak Up

"Lately, so many movies are dark-scened. Watching old movies I can actually SEE what is going on. A lot of new movies I can barely discern what the hell is going on. It could be day time in the scene and it feels like night time. Also, I can’t freaking hear crap anymore in movies. They’re loud mumbling."

Willy_Billy_WHO

Yummy

"Stop having people take like 1 bite of what they ordered then leave. It's a small thing, but I've never seen it happen in real life."

Smitty876

"Or worse, order something when they just intend to talk to someone there for a couple minutes and then leave when the food arrives. Who pays for it?"

FuturePut5

"I now want to see a movie set in one of these restaurants where every protagonist goes to eat. Just a constant parade of people taking one bite, throwing money on the table, or walking out without paying at all."

"Making movies where the 1 good guy defeats 20 bad guys because the 20 bad guys attack the 1 good guy one by one."

The Bad Giveaways

"Spoiling the film in the trailers."

Painting-Powerful

"Or showing all the best/funniest scenes in the trailer and then leaving you wondering wtf am I watching when watching the movie itself."

Kataphractoi

"Or they misrepresent the movie entirely by spinning it as a comedy when it's really a drama with a couple funny bits and only those funny bits make the trailer."

Lord Hollywood has a lot of work to do!

As adults, whenever you see teenagers being boisterous or rough-housing others, we tend to roll our eyes and move, chalking it up to youth.

I don't know about you, but when I was younger, in high school, I felt invincible and acted accordingly with my classmates without a care in the world.

But there is such a thing as going too far, and even teens who know better, generally know when they've overstepped a boundary.

Curious to hear of those instances, Redditor Silent-Zebra asked strangers online to reflect back on their youth.

Aside from picking up a family member who is finally going home or going to experience the birth of a child, most trips to the hospital aren't usually ones to look forward to.

When you're a patient being admitted, chances are, an accident or a bad decision has led you there.

With medical professionals witnessing a garden variety of cases, there must be some cases that surely stuck out in their minds.

Money is one of those things that many people find themselves wanting more of, simply for the sake of security and safety.

But for those who have money in multitudes, it's almost baffling how willingly they will throw large quantities of it away.
