What does everybody think about all of these remakes going on? I mean, I don’t mind one every now and again, but when’s it too much?
I just recently finished my Spider-Man trilogy collection. I happened to find the third one in the discount bin at Wal-Mart, which equals total score. I enjoyed all of the Spider-Man movies, but I was still excited when I found out that The Amazing Spider-Man was coming out. I happened to see both Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man in theaters. I enjoyed both of them. I happened to think Andrew Garfield was a better Spidey, and a better Peter Parker. But it’s a little crazy to think that two separate sets of Spidey movies have been released just five years apart.
Should it be that easy for movie makers to have a do-over?
The last Batman movie came out eight years before Batman Begins, but something needed to happen for us to forget that thing.
How about what’s going on with Superman? Before Superman Returns in 2006 we had Superman IV: The Quest for Peace in 1987, which was a big pile of poo. I really enjoyed Superman Returns, but apparently I was the only one. They’re coming out with another reboot, Man of Steel, in 2013.
We’re not only talking about Superhero movies here. How about True Grit (1969) or True Grit (2010)? I haven’t seen either one of those. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971) or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005). I did like both of these. And now this brings us to the movie(s) that started me thinking about this in the first place.
Footloose (1984) and Footloose (2011). Two good movies. The thing with these movies is the remake also had to have the music updated, which I think they did a good job doing. I did like the 2011 Willard a little more than the 1984 one too. You know what I can’t wait for? That’s right, Footloose (2037). Any bets on if this is going to happen or not?
So, what do you guys think?
