I really couldn't have put it any better What I have a problem with is the amount of films being remade today. I really don't have issues with films like The Fly, The Blob and The Thing being remade since they were made before my time - hence, I like what Paff pointed out in his thread. What I've always wondered is why remake an already good/original film? If it's not broken - then don't fix it. Wouldn't it be better to remake a not-so-great-film-to-begin-with instead? It's pretty obvious that Hollywood has run out of original ideas and that's a shame.
