Re: technology changing
@mhhf1ve in the interest of research, I checked it out on IMDB and got this https://www.imdb.com/list/ls070730997/There are actually 34 Frankenstein titles listed dating from the 30s to 2015. I seem to also recall a live play a few years back, though that may have only been in London.

 

Anyway, what's interesting to consider is how some versions treat the monster as a kind of robot whose programming can make him a destructive force. Instead of AI or malware, it's the brain in question in some takes.

Re: Bad ads...
There are many races happening between good and criminal. I wonder if any futurists (long ago) predicted this sort of strain between the two groups as technology grew...

Re: Bad ads...
@mhhf1ve I wouldn't bank on that. There's a kind of arms race between ads and ad blockers even for benign ads. Certainly, the hackers also are in a kind of arms race with security.

Bad ads...
Hopefully someday there will be algorithms to detect and eliminate all bad ads... until then, I guess we'll all have to suffer from these kinds of bothers and scams that deliver ads en masse to anyone with eyeballs (or even other computers without eyeballs).

Re: technology changing
Zombies have also "jumped the shark" with The Walking Dead and that movie with Brad Pitt (World War Z) and the Resident Evil movies... but I haven't seen too many Frankenstein movies since the old black and white one and the bride of Frankenstein sequel.

Re: technology changing
@mhhf1ve well, vampires are less science-based in that they are supposed to just be what they are without a mad scientist contributing to their physical abilities. In any case, I think they were supplanted in popularity by zombies, though not quite enough to generate a bunch of blockbuster films.

Re: technology changing
Certainly the character of a Frankenstein-like scientist or a "monster" has been popular all over, but I was actually wondering about more "monsters" that followed Mary Shelly's novel more closely. Like vampire movies (which have gone out of fashion recently) or some other spinoff series.

Re: technology changing
@mhhf1ve there have been a bunch. But in more recent decades, the mad science of creating a super human being has all been directed toward super heroes, and that genre seems to have proven itself to be a safe bet for box office blockbusters.

Re: technology changing
Scientists are a little crazy, tho, in a way.. Asking questions that "normal" people don't even think about and then performing experiments to see if they're right about some weird hypotheses. The Mad Scientist trope has a kernel of truth... 

I wonder why there aren't more Frankenstein movies and spinoffs... I suppose public domain characters aren't the easy targets you'd think they'd be.
