Reboots are almost universally crap. I have no doubt this will be too
The original is the best. The sequel is excellent too.
No need for a reboot, but as Total Recall has shown, the original is usually better, and the reboot will be forgotten quickly.
That's a ridiculous statement...granted the Total Recall reboot was not up to much, but what about the recent Batman franchise, and the Spider Man movies?
These reboots don't bother me in the slightest, the very fact that it's a reboot means it stands completely apart from the original, and whether it stands or falls it does not affect the original.
I just don't see the need to get upset over something like this.
And people keep asking why...simple, money. Plus the older the movie, as in this case, whole new generations of people will not have seen the original and will go and see it...so there is clearly money to be made.
