Marvel StudiosIn Hollywood, as in much of the rest of the world, nothing is as sacrosanct as the almighty dollar. Every additional dime that makes its way from the ticket booths of cinemas across the world to the pockets of Hollywood execs is like another heaping of chum being dumped into the ocean with eagerly awaiting sharks just below the surface -dreaming of yet another violently delicious meal. It may be a bit unfair to compare Hollywood producers to a swarm of vicious, carnivorous beasts, for I'm sure many of them are perfectly fine people. However, there is no denying the fact that when it comes to making decisions about what films to produce, they're not exactly fearless leaders trailblazing a brave new path of cinema. They go with trends and market research, and that's about it. The consequence of this mindset is that a hit isn't simply a hit, but rather a blueprint for at least a dozen more movies to come. The reverberations of a smashing success may be felt many years down the line and sometimes to quite the damaging effect. What follows then is a list of ten movies whose trends have unequivocally made the trip to your local Cineplex a more boring and infuriating experience. The movies themselves vary quite drastically in quality, ranging from bad to great, but what they all have in common is the terrible lessons they taught the people in charge of Hollywood.
