Every movie shouldn't be remade...nor should they have sequels..or prequels that have nothing to do with the actual movie..and are pretty much meaningless and pointless.

Did anybody watch movies from the 50s? They were overwhelmingly alike to the point that the actors were on weekly salaries and pumped out movie after movie.
It's the quality of the actors, the script and the effects that make the difference. Love is love, fear is fear, suspense and wonder will come in any genre. There is nothing new under the sun because it is all eternally interesting.

Who cares?
on 03/29/15
At least with the sequels and prequels I think they make them because of demand, not for lack of ideas.

I'm still waiting on the Thelma & Louise sequel! I think they could have landed that jump.

all over rated over payed singer, actor,any any entertainer. replace them with knuckle dragging monkeys,apes and baboons and they will guarantee better fresh new shows.

Ok with sequels and prequels that are well done. Sick of remakes of 80s and 90s films that are still relevant without being remade.

I think there's too much trash in movies in general. Even great films are brought down by lowering standards.

I think they are just too chicken to try anything that isn't "tried and true." There are always new ideas, but not always people willing to give them a shot.
on 03/29/15
There are plenty of new ideas out there, but they never get a chance.
Just like in the rest of the good ol' USA, it's all about the money these days, and if they can both save and make money reusing an old idea, Hollywood is going to keep doing it until people stop buying it.

That being said, some of those "old ideas" are freaking fantastic to see realized with modern technology behindthem.

This isn't a new thing . It's been a practice in Hollywood for decades . Your favorite movie is probably a version of hamlet , Romeo and Juliet or Richard the 3rd
on 03/29/15
they cant read every script, let alone fund some of em. so remake what works until.

I think they are running out of ideas, but as long as the sequel,etc.., is as good or better than the original I don't mind. Like How to train your dragon 1&2 both were great movies on their own. Or despicable me 1&2 and I am really looking forward to Minion Madness.

I don't mind sequels but have the time they are redoing the same story from the first or it can't meet the same expectations as the first movie.

Stop trying to package the same gift and resell as something else. It's not different because you put a slight twist on it. Be original - not stupid.

I love to write stories but find that plots are all used up. I can add a twist or combine two different plots but the main plot is not exactly original. Man vs man, Man vs nature, Man vs some other crisis.

I honestly can't say for sure, because I haven't had television service or seen many movies recently. Some sequels I saw in the past were a welcome follow-up to what I saw before. But I'm sure it's possible to overwork a story until it becomes stale.

On the other hand, think of Margaret Mitchell's "Gone With the Wind". Many people would have loved to read a sequel written by her own hand. Unfortunately, she died in a car accident before that could happen. I read somewhere, though, that when asked if she was going to write a sequel, she said, "No, the story has already been told." Sometimes what's left unsaid leaves more to the imagination.

I forgot to mention a remake of the film: "Fiend Without A Face" would be memorable If It were
updated 21st Century Style and In-Color.

So remakes sound good..but they are too many worn out movie ideas these days!
on 03/29/15
I just don't watch the remakes and most sequels. Prequels? Maybe if I were that invested in a story I would care I guess. I think most people are getting bored with Hollywood. Everyone I know is getting more into television series and rarely even going to the theater anymore.
on 03/29/15
I would like to see the Remake of: Brides of Dracula, Leech Woman, Love With A Proper Stranger,
Children Of The Damned, Saratoga Trunk, Baby The Rain Must fall, and Man With The X-Ray Eyes.
And of course, I expect them to be in color and updated to reflect "Modern America".

I really hate when they make remakes. They always make the remakes corny. For example Dukes of Hazzard (it's a remake from an old tv show) and 21 Jump Street. I hear they are remaking The Crow. I believe that should be left alone. Brandon Lee died for that movie..

I don't pay attention to fame in Hollywood. They make movies with whatever they decide to use. These days you can shake your leg and be famous.

I often don't like remakes. Sequels = depends. Prequels = yes

I am so tired of it, I watch international movies now since we have the same remakes and themes. They are so much better than Hollywood remakes and what not. I love old movies though 1965 and down are great movies.

I enjoy the remaking of films. For example, I enjoyed the film "Rosemary's Baby" when It first appeared
in the 1970's. And, it remake was different and not as confusing as the original. As a kid, I saw the
film "Wasp Woman". I was amazed by the film as a child. But, I laughed at it as an adult. I intend to
view its remake. The "Species" sequels are a bit too much. But, I view them anyway. And, I enjoyed the
remake of "Children Of The Damned" as much as the original film when it appeared in the 1960's.

Everything has been essentially done as far as plots go. The only thing you can do is continue a series or make an original movie but when you break down the plot it would have been done several times (it's all about how the director portrays it though that will make it watchable or not).

Who cares if Hollywood keeps putting out the same stuff each year? You don't have to watch them. The truth is, there are many dozens of original and fresh movies released each year by smaller studios. It's no one's fault but your own if you can't be bothered to look them up. Foreign movies are also a good place to find good original ideas.

I don't watch very many movies, so it really doesn't matter to me. I just wish that more family friendly movies would be made.
