‘Ben-Hur’ box-office bomb proves that Hollywoods needs to stop with the unimaginative remakes

Ben-Hur Movie
It seems like Hollywood these days is in dire need of some creativity. Indeed, it's hard to go to a movie theatre these days and not see a movie that's either a prequel, a sequel, a reboot, or a complete remake of an original masterpiece. Sometimes, the strategy of remaking or rebooting a film works out exceedingly well. Most notably, we saw this with the Batman reboot from Christopher Nolan that resulted in a trio of excellent films starring Christian Bale as the caped crusader. But more often than not, Hollywood tries to go to the same well far too frequently, often leaving us with subpar films that do nothing but sully the original it's derived from.

Attention film nerds: here are the 10 best structured movies of all time

Film Structure
There are a myriad of lenses through which one can view and judge a film, from the dialogue or action all the way down to its cinematography. But one aspect of film that isn't often evaluated or paid much attention to is structure. While we may not overtly think about the varying structures that underly different movies, we're certainly cognizant of them. To wit, one of the reasons why people remain so enamored with films like Pulp Fiction and Memento is precisely because they take advantage of extremely unique structures in order to relay the story to viewers.

Watch an ‘Assassin’s Creed’ stuntman perform an insane jump from 125 feet up in the air

Assassin's Creed Movie Leap Of Faith
Movies based on popular video games tend to fall into either one of two categories: they're either so boring that we quickly forget about their existence or they're so comically bad and unwatchable that they essentially become legendary, with 1993's Super Mario Bros film being a prime example. All that said, Hollywood has never been afraid to make the same mistake twice -- or even 50 times for that matter -- so even in 2016 we're still being bombarded with a seemingly endless number of video game-to-movie adaptations. With the Angry Birds movie thankfully behind us, we can now turn our attention to a film that might surprise us all and actually be entertaining -- Assassin's Creed. We've been playing various incarnations of the game for years now, and a film based on the popular video game franchise is slated to hit theaters later this December.

‘Jason Bourne’ review roundup: Critics can’t stop hating on the latest Bourne flick

Jason Bourne Reviews
We'll have our own review up tomorrow, but for anyone currently on the fence about seeing Jason Bourne, we've put together a little review roundup so you know exactly what you're getting yourselves into. And while we wish we could say that everyone is gushing over the film and that it's a must-see, the truth is that reviews of the film have been rather tepid, to put it mildly. It's certainly nice to have Matt Damon back in the mix following the forgettable Bourne Legacy flick starring Jeremy Renner, but even an all-star cast featuring Tommy Lee Jones and Julia Stiles can't do enough to save what some critics are calling an uninspired and even boring film.
