98% of any remakes I have seen are worse than the original. Why remake any movie? Why not try for something new, fresh?
Making a movie from a book/comic book is bad enough, trying to trade in on existing fans base, but at least it is a new medium. Redoing an existing movie just so you can have new stars or new tech is, imo, asinine.
Oh, wait, this is Hollyweird – originality is passé.
