NOTHING ORIGINAL FROM HOLLYWOOD


Back in the heyday of cinema
Audiences were held in thrall
Of images and sounds on the silver screen
The wonder and amazement of it all

But nowadays it’s all about numbers
Money and sequels and merchandise
If you happen to see something new and exciting
It’s just a trick of the light

There’s nothing original from Hollywood
Nothing but reboots to see
Movies about battles that have begun
Or just begun, and most in 3-D.

Horror flicks about people who are tortured to death
Rom coms about pretty people who can’t get dates
Animated movies that wish they were by Pixar
And films based on freakin’ boardgames.

There’s nothing original from Hollywood
Sadly that is plain to see
Gross-out jokes and characters running into things
Is this what has become of comedy?

Where are the envelope pushers, the risk takers?
Have they been blacklisted or locked up somewhere?
We need them back soon as humanly possible
For movies have become harder to bear

There’s nothing original from Hollywood
No cinema will get my money
Until the industry changes or grows a pair
I’ll wait ’till it comes out on DVD.
