What genre should be popular next?

Vampires...zombies...these have been the big things lately. What genre do you want to see become popular in the near future?

Frankly, I would really like to see a resurgence of dinosaur movies! I feel like dinosaurs aren't cool anymore, and that breaks my childhood heart.

androids, robots, possibly humanoid androids ala gynoid, a fictional type of cyborg ala Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

Re: What genre should be popular next?

I'd be happy with a resurgence of dinosaur movies. But what I'd really like to see is giant monster movies make a return. I thought we'd see more with the success of Cloverfield, which I really liked, but despite the low budget "Monsters" due out next month and a new Godzilla movie in 2012 there really hasn't been a resurgence of giant monster movies.

Re: What genre should be popular next?

Historicaly accurate action films need to return. Examples:"Dances With Wolves", "Last of the Mohechans","The Patriot", "Master and Comander". I also want more brainless action films like "The A Team" "Indy Jones", BTTF. By brainless I mean there shouldn't be some elaborate plot or any thought to it just good guy, bad guy, stop bad guy and have a few laughs. I'm not saying the movies have to be reatarted, there should some substance. I also want to see brainless comedies like Dazed and Confused, Dude Where's My Car, Hot Tub Time Machine, Half Baked, The Hangover. I think we have some of that, but where's the Wayne and Garth and Bill and Ted's of the new millennium?

Well, obviously. I didn't ask what genre should continue to be popular.

Re: What genre should be popular next?

Dinosaur are not really my thing. What I would really love to see would be finally the breakthrough of Super Robots on the silver screen: Mazinger, Grendizer, Voltron, Daitarn 3, what-you-have. Big, loud and stupid, maybe; but they were the bread-and-butter of my afternoons when I was a kid and it would be great to see them at the theatre. After the box-office success of Transformers, there have been some rumours about it, but nothing materialized so far.

Is there some kind of humour at work here? Because I surely hope so.

Re: What genre should be popular next?

I'd like to see a resurgence of space opera movies.. larger than life SF movies set in space with tons of cool spaceships, aliens and dashing heroes (get Ryan Reynolds to play Han Solo's nephew or son ).

We need our own generations' original Star Wars... something that will define our cinema this decade and on.

Barring that i wouldn't mind the continuence of serious Fantasy movies like Lord of the Rings.. Narnia and The Golden Compass just seemed too much like fairy tales for kids to me.

No joke my friend, problem with those movies? I'm not saying those people existed, but the accuracy of what they are trying to convey is pretty good, especially the Patriot and Last of the Mohichans.

Some space opera would be nice especially if it's an adaptation of an Alastair Reynolds novel.

Whatever became of all those straight-to-video and straight-to-DVD skin flicks? Did the internet kill them?

Could we get a big budget skin flick with Scarlett Johansson, Anne Hathaway and Kate Beckinsale running around naked for half the movie?
