The Hollywood remakes

Whenever I see a movie I believe it will be a last of it but NO that is not the case to be. These remakes that the Hollywood makes me really made that now I have to see what the fuss is all about, although I don’t see all the remakes but just out of curiosity I do see some remakes and they don’t seem to be good like the originals.

Today there was an article regarding how some movies don’t need to be remade again and again but does the Hollywood listen. No way, they want to update the movies with new technology and gadgets and sometimes it is scene by scene. Are they saying money or just don’t have the ability to find new story line. Anyway, the worst of the remakes can be summed up into one thing, flops not one but many. I can name a few like the Pink Panther, Friday the 13th, Halloween, Assault on Precinct 13, Escape from New York, The Lady Killers, Psycho, Planet of The Apes, Land of the Lost (based on the TV series), Wicker Man, Death at a Funeral (the new movie of a British remake a few years ago) Predator is coming out, and countless others that on the top of my head I can’t remember suggesting that they are not worth mentioning in the first place.

It is just a shame that with so much talent in the United States, Hollywood has failed to find fresh material or are deliberately trying to rely on true and tried movie script thinking that the audience who are young enough will want to see them with new technologies and bigger budgets.
