Re: JP sequel 2018

But not as much as Robot Monster, with the Ro-Man alien ( man in a gorilla suit wearing a space helmet), his calcinator ray, and the billion bubble machine by Fischer Chemicals. Cost $16,000 to make and made $1,000,000 profit in 1953!

Now that was a movie!

    That is exactly the point.  They are movies --- CRAPPY movies,
    lacking in any plot creativity, restricted almost entirely to a
    few theropod species (some of which are made of whole electrons),
    and  just replowing the same formulaic theme of children in danger
    over and over and over again. SNORE.....  They are hugely
    successful and so will keep recycling themselves forever.  No
    surprise there, for as H.L. Mencken observed

    “No one in this world, so far as I know—and I have searched the
    record for years, and employed agents to help me—has ever lost
    money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of
    the plain people.”
