I remember reading a thing ages ago about the appeal of the Teletubbies and it said that infants loved watching the same thing over and over. Like if they showed a Mom doing laundry or whatever, they'd show it again right away and the babies loved it. Babies.
When I see stuff like this getting prequeled and rebooted etc. I keep thinking about that. That we are basically babies just wanting to see the same shit over again.
Every Marvel movie is basically the same film.
None of these are new or shocking thoughts, but Jesus it bears mentioning now and again.
