Once again, I have missed my entry for Friday’s “Do you have a Dream?” Unfortunately, I was sick the entire week, which is also why I have not updated since last Friday. Although I have completed my character profiles for my novel last week, I have yet to start on the chapter outlines due to my illness. Next week will be slightly busy for me. Therefore, I’m not sure when I will be able to work on my outlines, but I am positive that I will be able to start typing the chapters by the end of this month. The thought has crossed my mind to write this novel for Nanowrimo next month...I've never won a Nano before (only the Script Frenzy every April.) This year, I will be more determined to completed it compared to my last two years attempting it. ^^;
If you follow me on Facebook, you may have seen me mention that I would discuss my thoughts on Hollywood.
For years, Hollywood hasn’t exactly been faring so well. This is my own opinion and you may not agree with me on this but I feel as though Hollywood has lost its sense of originality. Every movie is a remake, reboot or a sequel/prequel. Now there are some exceptional movies under those categories, but there are some horrible ones...
|Point in case....|
Let’s go down a list of a few remakes, reboots and sequel/prequels over the years and the coming years.
· Dawn of the Dead (2004)
· The Day the Earth Stood Still (2008)
· Godzilla (1998) (Not to mention the one coming out in 2014)
· Gone in 60 Seconds (2000)
· The Grudge (2004)
· The Ring (2002)
· Thir13en Ghost (2001)
· Batman (Coming out in 2014)
· Nightmare on Elm Street
· Child’s Play (Chucky)

Honestly…I could go on and on, but you get the point. The term originality is slowly dying in Hollywood world. I have watched some original movies, but not many in comparison to remakes, reboots, prequels and sequels.
What are your thoughts on Hollywood movies nowadays?
Also, I’ll like to thank Jennifer Chow, for nominating me for the Liebster award! I’ll be sure to post it sometime this upcoming week along with my nominees.
