You know what Hollywood is good at? Recycling old ideas. Whether it’s plot points from previous films that are spun into a new one, or a remake being commissioned, there’s seldom any new ideas coming out of tinseltown. Now, generally I’m one to have an open mind, especially when it comes to a remake. Depending on who’s in charge, could mean that a remake totally blows the original out of the water, or just totally blows. So far, more of them have sucked pretty hard, and made everyone in the theatre wonder “why bother?”
These are some that I’ve had the misfortune to sit through, sitting with baited breath, hoping not to be disappointed.
