Why isnt there more medieval movies like Men in tights?

That old Robin Hood movie. Men in Tights. I consider it Adventure comedy. But interms of "non of this white liberal USA influence" just good design, believable costumes, the story is interesting. They act kinda like they are from that time period. Why isnt there more movies like that..

Instead we get. "Game of Thrones" 40% porn and 60% plot.

And what's wrong with that?  Ah.......I get it.  You ARE from Alabama and Alt-right and watch porn all the time.......and lie about it. 
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

I dont know why you think i am from Alabama.

I just think having porn in a story distracts from whatever purpose it has. Despite i consider it degenerate.
Porn atleast is honest about its intention.
When i watch a movie i want to know what the plot is about, not if they are gonna do it or not

Why Alabama.  Because that is the home of stupid belief (they don't think they just believe) and hypocrisy. You remind me of some of the people from Alabama I've known.

I thought Men In Tights was very funny in a moderate gay way.  You "terrorists" love horror movies, you would like the rabbi in the movie detaching the Sheriff's manhood.

Why isnt there more movies like that..

You know, parody was a great genre. But I think it got overplayed after the rise of the 'Scary movie' franchise. Scary movie itself was great, but it's sequals went downhill. And then the shit like 'superhero movie', 'epic movie', ... just killed the genre dead.

We can always still look back at Men in Thights (which I honestly feel hasn't aged well), Space Balls, Austing Powers, Traumschiff Surprise, Shaun of the Dead, Not another teen movie, any number of leslie nielsen flicks (really am partial to wrongfully accused)... But honestly I am happy traditional spoof, apart from a few outliers like Stan Helsing, seems to be dying out. There is still room for satire in today's cinema and television. I love satire on tropes through the likes of 'The Boys', 'One Punch man', Shrek, 'Mob Psycho 100', 'South Park' (though I have stopped watching a few  season back) 'Kaguya sama: Love is War', 'Rick and Morty', 'Sakamoto Desu Ga', ...

Also, really keen to watch Jojo Rabbit

Space Balls & the first Austin Powers were great.  I love that version of Darth Vader.  Ever see Thumb Wars? all of Ri

First Shrek and all of Rick & Morty are gut laughs.  Jojo Rabbit, hope to see more clips.  The only way you can dispel demons is to laugh at them (see Star Trek classic episode of perpetual war between Federation crew and Klingon crew).

Because we are out of awesomeness. It's suspended till your kind can get the meaning of the concept of irony.

You did see it. It's called a glimpse of a young Kevin Costner's bare ass under a waterfall while Bryan Adams singing 'Everything I do, I do it for you' Robin Hood and you have seen it with your wife or daughter in the early 90s.

I have no idea where are you from but you obviously haven't watched any porn or more likely pretending that you haven't because that's not porn, kiddo.
