Some Hollywood franchises might as well replace every spoken word of English with this phrase and the final product would basically be the same. Same depth of plot, same character interaction, same mindless movies…

Mainstream movie producers are like those clingy exes who refuse to let go, long after the magic has died and no one else even remembers what the fuss was about in the first place.
