Movies are getting just as bad. Now writers aren't even bothering with trying to create new material. They just take an old movie, rewrite it and release it again as something new. There are a few creative types out there , but they are few and far between.
This is funny, and for two reasons. One, it seems to assume that writers dictate what movies are produced and, two, that Hollywood being flooded by a glut of remakes (and, more generally, pre-sold properties) is a new phenomenon.
