Well sequels are usually worse than the original movie, a sequel to Alien vs. Predator certainly not being able to be any better than the original movie which already wasn't the strongest. The only, and best exeption I know is Terminator 2 which in my opinion even surpassed the original Terminator (which on it's own was excellent).

And about stagnation, I think this is the time of history with fastest developement in every subject. Maybe you aren't feeling it in your day to day life, but just take a look at how things are changing in countries such as China or India. Or how many technological advances have been in the last years.

About that film Lulu, well, I hope you didn't expect too much of that kind of sequel for that kind of film...
Oh, nobody said there are no technological breakthroughs, they are numerous and fast paced indeed. It's not that kind of "breakthroughs" I meant.
Take the music from 70's / 80's for example and compare it to music from today. Also compare the modern Star Wars Episode 1-3 (Episode 3 was actually not that bad) to the classic Episode 4-6 and see if there's any difference. It's not that there's no good music or movies anymore, they're just getting more rare, and that's usually a sign of cultural stagnation approaching.

Well IMO music in the 80's was sheer crap, of course there are lots of exceptions but I'd say early 90's were much better music wise. I can't say I agree with your post.

Scatty: That "stagnating culture", that's a load of hooey You only need to look in new places to see culture most alive and kicking and developing. It's the corporate culture that is stagnating, but what the media calls "alternative" is very much alive.
