I don't understand the need to stew, focus your thoughts, write diatribes (and proof-read!), probably read it over 2 or 3 more times for good measure, and possibly even go to bed angry, mulling over movies & TV shows that are guaranteed to get your own goat, every time you think of them. That sort of constant negativity is no good for the soul. Move on.
There is plenty of modern product, based on classic shows, movies or characters, that I despise for one reason or another, whether I actually subjected myself to a film or two, or instantly disliked what I saw in ads: The STAR WARS Prequels & Sequels, most DC movies, any STAR TREK after DS9, the Bay TRANSFORMERS, the Fox Marvel movies, the new Ridley Scott ALIEN movies, etc., etc.
But I either ignore them, or just don't watch them, period. And I move on.
People may embrace new STAR TREK, or they may loathe it. Most attempts have not been my cup of tea. (For the record, PICARD looks decent to me, SHORT TREKS, not so much.) But if it gives others a bunch of fun and pleasure, who am I to judge? And when you spend this much time ranting against this or other modern media, you might have to ask yourself, are you angry that this stuff is being made? Or are you upset that there's still an audience for this, and that no one really pays attention to your angry posts and livid opinions?
Find something you love. Embrace that. And move on. You'll feel better.
