My rant about movie remakes

My rant about movie remakes

                                             

I am getting annoyed with these movie remakes for two reasons; the first reason is that they are remaking movies that are fine to begin with. They remake films like Plant of the apes, King Kong, Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory and The karate kid. Those films had the same problems sequels had it the same film but changed a few details. I hear people say that they are not as good as the original so what the point of remaking them? This shows that Hollywood is running out of ideas, if you are trying to introduce these films to people who weren’t around at the time the films came out why not see them the original? Just like I said about there should be rules when making a trilogy there should be rules in making a remake, one rule should be is to get people who have see the original something new and people who haven’t interested in see the movie. They tried to get people interested in seeing these films with specials effects, but that’s the problem we see special effects all the time. Besides what is Hollywood telling us all you need is special effects to make a movie, last I check you need characters and a stories to make movie as long as you have those things you can look past how bad the effects look at the time. So far there are two examples that I can think of and they are Terminator 2 and Batman Begins. Terminator 2 had the same plot as the previous film however there was more going on in the screenplay, plus they recycle some scenes in the first film but did them differently. Batman Begins got people who are not familiar with batman interested in this movie by telling his origin story on screen, yes! They have done this before however they told the story differently, they did this by giving Bruce Wayne/Batman a different motivation to become Batman, a deeper reason why he dress as a bat and answer some of the unanswered question that the comics didn’t answer. The second reason why remakes annoy me is that instead of remaking films that was already good why not remake films that were bad, so far that have done that with Judge Dredd and The Hulk. I would like to see a remake of the Star Wars prequels. Basically going to watch these movies is a waste of time and money because if you see the original than you already know what’s going to happen from beginning to end.
