The Legacy of Grumpy Cat: Five More Meme Movies

Categories: Film and TV

I saw a movie once. It was awful.

At the beginning of the 20th century, when the art of filmmaking was in its infancy, audiences were content to look at moving pictures on a screen. Oncoming trains, bumbling cops, and whatever it was that the butler saw were all considered worthwhile entertainment. As the years went on, there was more of a demand for actual stories, so filmmakers started to create movies based on historical events, fables, and popular books.

Fast-forward to the 21st century. All the good ideas have now been made into movies, and Hollywood has become the snake that eats its own tail, constantly churning out remakes, sequels, prequels, and prequels to remakes of sequels. Movies based on Biblical tales and historical figures have been replaced by movies based on toys and board games. Just when we thought that the art could not debase itself any further, it was announced that a Grumpy Cat movie was going into production.
