Default Re: Are there any great sci-fi films of the last decade?

A big part of the problem is that the last decade was littered with reboots and remakes. Bond, Batman, Star Trek, Spiderman (Twice. I count the current reboot that went into production last year.), The Day the Earth stood still, King Kong and loads of others. There was nothing new, nothing that blew your mind. There was some great eye candy but no originality. Original writing and concepts have been ignored by the bean counters who hope that nostalgia will bring in the punters. The problem is that they're right. As long as we keep going to the cinema in record numbers then all we're going get is a rehash of material that we've seen many, many times before. Vote with your feet and we'll get the films that we deserve and want.
