THE LIST: Why Rob Gronkowski would be the greatest movie star in history

Jim Rogash

Hollywood needs a hero. Hollywood needs Rob Gronkowski.

Let's face it: Today's movies are mostly mediocre. In the past few years we've seen 10,000 superhero movies that are all basically the same movie, every six months there's a different biopic that's pretty good but not as good as everyone says, and the whole Hollywood machine just sort of creeps along, thinning our wallets 12 dollars at a time.

You know what could change everything?

A star.

A superstar.

A force of personality that wins over the whole world.

For instance, they re-made Red Dawn recently. What an awful idea. Why would anyone ever re-make Red Dawn? On the other hand, if you re-made Red Dawn with Rob Gronkowski as the star... See what we're saying? Without further ado, here's a handful of movies that Hollywood should make immediately.
