The Law of Creativity (Title Division)

Tonight I saw a TV spot for The Ring Two.

If there were justice in Hollywood, there would be a law stating the following:

"If a film studio is so creatively bankrupt that the only way it can release a new film is to rehash one it's already made, it must at the very least show a modicum of originality by coming up with a title that does not follow the pattern [title of previously released cash cow] [numeral]. The use of alternate spellings or Roman numerals shall not be construed as satisfying this requirement."

That is, if there were justice in Hollywood.
