    I sometimes think Bay and co remake everything to make their original concepts look better. The TCM travesty’s real purpose was to make The Rock and Pearl Harbour look like classics. Either that or they genuinely believe that every film ever made would be better if they featured lots of shots of girlies in tight jeans and crop-tops. Yeah, that Stalker is a pretty good movie. But imagine how much better it would be with Megan Fox, lots of CGI, senile dope jokes and some kick ass action scenes.

    I think new remakes are not always a good thing. And I really don’t like the idea of remaking movies that are GREAT ALREADY. What, there’s a HUGE new-ideas-crisis in Hollywood? Filming computer games, remaking good movies over and over again… what next? Toilet-paper-instruction-based trilogy? Sad…

    Classics are classics. What’s next? Remake Jaws and Star Wars? sheesh. It’s proof that Hollywood knows that people will pay some dollars to see how technology has affected the movie, even though everyone knows it will have not NEAR the impact it had the original time because then it was less about tech and more about story! That’s how they became friggin’ classics! Grab a new generation, okay. But can we give it 30-40 years before you drop kick and mangle what was once beautiful? (even if it was only 80’s technology)

    Jaws is one of my all time favourite films. But if someone remade it I would be first in line to see it. The problem with remakes is no matter how bad they are you are curious enough to waste money finding out how bad they are.
    Thus Bay did say unto his deciples, “Go forth and remake, for I see great profits”. And so it was and ever shall be.

    Remakes shouldn’t even be made unless the original was seriously terrible or if the original somehow was lost/destroyed. Or if the person who wrote the original story i 100% involved to make it just like the one before. “A remake of Star Wars?” Why not, but only if George Lucas works on it.

    Why can’t Hollywood seem to make good movies anymore? Don’t they understand they have to have an original story to make great movies. I can not find any movies anymore that haven’t been remade at least once. Where is the likes of Eraserhead. Someone HELP us.

    The irony of all these upcoming movie remakes is that over the last decade and a bit Hollywood has made some really ambitious and great films. Much stronger films than in the late-80s to 90s. The problem is lack of a big audience for original stuff that is genuinely good. Personally I rate The Assassination of Jesse James, Zodiac, Eternal Sunshine, Where the Wild Things Are, and lot of other films alongside the best American films of any decade. That they are not seen in the same way as The Godfather or Kane or Paths of Glory or Taxi Driver is not Hollywood’s fault. The thing is the democratisation of taste you get with the Internet results in a reduction in the notion of a classic. No offence to fans of The Dark Knight or Avatar, but these are good solid slices of entertainment. They are not great films.

    “Did we really need another version of this classic?” That’s the question. Although I’m down for the new It movie.

    Some of the remakes coming soon sound good but you should really only remake movies that weren’t great to begin with. When you remake “classics” it just annoys people because it’s just redoing something that was already perfect.

    Not only are they remaking 70s and 80s classics, but they are starting to remake/reboot stuff from the ’00s like Tomb Raider, Spider-Man, and Fantastic Four. In a couple of decades, I’ll be watching nothing but remakes.

    I think any remake anyone wants to do is fine, It doesn’t detract from the original, it doesn’t change it. If you don’t want to watch the remake, don’t watch it, no one is forcing you. If anything, a remake compliments an original by appreciating or paying tribute to how great the plot was.

    all these new movie remakes just let us kno that although time is passing and technology is advancing we are STILL LIVING IN THE PAST!!! and we cant let it go………new technology is jus making everyone lazy so instead of thinking of new stories and being creative, they jus try to perfect what someone else already did very well………

      Oh PLEASE. A LOT of these movies DO actually need a remake. Take IT for example. The first version left SO much out from the books (such as the underage gang bang, though I hate that part of the book) and Akira, YES, it needs a remake. I read the comics – the movie changed and took out too much. Same with the live action Death Note. Too much taken out. I also want a Silent Hill redo.

      Some of the new remakes coming out shouldn’t have been touched, but a lot weren’t done right in the first place. I’d take a movie that closely follows the book/comic/source any day, even if it’s a second attempt.

    I think I’m going to puke. I would literally pay money to watch 180 minutes of paint drying than another bastardized remake of a classic film.

    Remakes are not as good as the originals because they focus on technology above all else. The original might have great suspense, great writing, but the remake focuses more on stupid special fx. That’s what they sell it on – some fancy money shots that weren’t possible in the past. It’s like in the South Park episodes of Imagination Land when the govt. calls movie writers to come up with ideas and all the writers can come up with is special fx and explosions….

    But what I hate even more is when Hollywood tries to remake movies from other nations without even understanding what the whole plot is about. The Last Airbender sucked, and I am totally against a Death Note remake because no one can play the part of the psychotic main character. In order for them to make a decent remake Hollywood would have to talk to and respect the creator, read and analyze the source material intelligently and faithfully… it just seems beyond them.

    I am furious about some of the movie remakes that are coming soon, like Short Circuit, Akira and The Warriors! Filmmakers can’t come up with their own original ideas nowadays so they have to ruin classics that don’t need to be messed with!
