Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    I mean, if "all things being equal," the original has more artistic merit, because it grants a greater number of opportunities to create things, wouldn't that only matter if those things were then better than and not equal to the later iterations of those things?

    nope!

    Because creativity is not about quality.

    Why not?

    I love both versions of High Fidelity but the movie so overrides everything else that when I read it, even though in the book they're English, I can still only picture Cusack and Jack Black and that other guy

    If you are going to complain a out the lack of original movies. You really shouldn't complain about this one as I believe is maybe Jim Carey's second sequel ever.

    I mean Adam Sandler never does sequels.

    I think that's a shame.

    Because if he did he would have probably faded away into obscurity.

    because?

    Because one comes from the other? Innovation and perfection are different.

    Dave, can you please explain, on a points scale how many more artistic merit points an original IP has over the quality of a really good sequel.

    ·
  • Blake TBlake T Registered User regular
    Please use the examples, Jack and Jill and The Godfather Part II.

    That seems like an arbitrary distinction between abstractions that's kinda divorced from assessing the artistic merit of actual works.

    The Matrix, V for Vendetta and Speed Racer are all great in my book.

    I personally enjoy The Matrix 2 & 3.

    But beyond that I think they don't have enough films to be judged so harshly.

    It's watchable, yeah. but it's just kinda like a movie. nothing really remarkable happens. a lot of the events are telegraphed and they couldn't make up their minds on if we should like or hate V.

    Guys, I have a confession to make.
    I saw the Dumb and Dumber prequel.
    In theaters.
    And thought some of it was funny.
    I....I needed to get that off my chest.
