I wish writers put a little more effort into coming up with something new or different instead of rehashing the same old same old. I wish the ones who did got more interest from the powers that be. Publishers want and look for stories that they know will be successful because they have worked in the past. That sold a bazillion copies and this is just like it so it will sell a bazillion copies too! Therefore that's what writers write, because they know it has a good chance of selling.
Here's to Indie writers and movie makers who buck the trend and write outside the box and continue to put new characters and stories out there for us to enjoy, even if they make no money at it.
