Has Hollywood totally given up on being creative? They have had remakes of movies that weren’t all that good the first time around. In other cases they rework, classics that could never be improved upon like King Kong.
As far as movies that have sequences, the only thing they do is devalue the first film. The only one that ever really needed a second part was Kill Bill and that was Part One and Two from the start because they knew no one would be able to sit for that long.
If that isn’t bad enough they re-hash old TV shows that don’t translate well 20 years later.
Fortunately someone hasn’t tried to re-do and destroy films like Gone With the Wind, Casablanca, Being There, Bliss and Forbidden Planet.
I know they got John Waters blessing and support to remake Hair Spray, but what was wrong with the first one that needed improvement? I hope they remake Pink Flamingos just so I can watch John Travolta eat a pile of real dog crap in the last scene.
