Everything is inspired by something I learned that from our class and other classes as well. The whole “Stars Wars: A New Hope” and “Star Wars:The Force Awakens” comparison is top spot on it hurts I mean they are literally the same film.
One film that really bothers me cause it’s such a ripoff is the movie “Echo” because oh my goodness it’s the same thing as “E.T.” It’s so upsetting I hate to watch it but it goes to show that the everything truly is a remix everything draws inspiration from something and that’s just the way things are.
I hate to bash on it because I’m sure the filmmakers just love “E.T” so they wanted to recreate the same magic but “Earth To Echo” is a prime example where the remix is not always an improved version of the original. I could not stop thinking about this while watching the videos.
One last thing the song I hated the most last year that was everyone else’s favorite song was “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X and the remix was actually more popular than the original.
This meme I found represents the madness of the memes and I hated each one more than the last one but anyways yes everything we love is a remix thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.
