    I like the new remakes. most of the oldies are better than the junk they come up with nowadays anyway, don't poke fun, embrace it!

    Though some remakes are disappointments in comparsion to their predicessors, others surpass them. Depends on how well they do it I guess.

    Replace him with Hayden Christensen, another evil role for him, haha!

    I agree.............on this, totally. I do think that they are running out of ideas............but there are billions waiting to be discovered. However, I do think that remaking old movies is pretty amazing because for those who haven't seen the old ones, this will provide a chance to see them in a new version.

    Some remakes are just fine, for instance.... John Carpenter's The Thing is widely embraced as being better than the original. Same goes for Brian Depalma's Scarface, vastly superior to the original. So with that being said i don't hate remakes, but back then they were less frequent...and weren't made just to cash in on a quick buck. It's a different story nowadays though.

    I have to agree. It's happening more often, remakes I mean.

    However, the only thing that I can say to support the creation of remakes is that it brings the idea of the original movie's plot (or just the idea it presented) to another generation that probably wouldn't have ever watched the orginal to begin with. Then of course, a remake comes out and what do we all hear? 'Oh did you know that's a remake?' In some cases, it invokes a need in the person to see the original for either comparison or curiosity reasons.

    All in all though, some remakes can be annoying. I liked both versions of The Time Machine. The plots were different enough that I could take the remake seriously and enjoy it.

    Okay, I'm done .^_^.

    There you go, all good points! And yes new versions have captured a new broader audiences because of the new gadgets & techs people are developing. And not because of that, the DVD is much simpler than the VHS, which means less hassle & better view of entertainment.
