Superman is sick of it too:
Why so many 'reboots'? It's like the studios are admitting their own work is crap/not good enough.
-We've had 2 versions of The Hulk (and I think we'll be having a 3rd - they didn't want Edward Norton as David Banner again).
-They already 'rebooted' Superman but were unhappy with it - so here it comes again as a re-reboot.
-We've had 3 pretty decent Spider-Man movies with Tobey Maguire. Not good enough. The reboot is shooting now.
-Today I just read that after "The Dark Knight Rises", they'll be scrapping that series & 'rebooting' Batman YET again.
-X-men First Class & the Wolverine movies. These are more 'spinoffs' than 'reboots', but still.
And how about remakes? Here's a long list of ones we've arleady seen - and ones that are on the way:
-Texas Chainsaw Massacre (A classic! The remake? Sacrelige!)
-The Wizard of Oz (How COULD they? This is ridiculous.)
-Total Recall (The original came out in 1990 - can't they remake older stuff first?)
-Robocop (Again - 1987. Too soon!)
-Arthur (Already out - and an insult to the original w/ Dudley Moore & Liza Minelli.)
-The Birds (A classic & should not be f**ked with!)
-Conan The Barbarian (Nobody will top Arnold's role here.)
-Escape From New York (Kurt Russell should be up in arms over this!)
-Fletch (Chevy Chase WAS Fletch. How the hell do you remake it w/o him?)
-Gremins (Are you f'n kidding me?)
I could go on, but I think you get the idea. Why SO many reboots/remakes? It's quite clear by now that NOBODY in Hollywood has any original ideas left. None.
Now... remakes of much older movies I'd actually be OK with. For example, I was OK with the remake of H.G. Wells Time Machine. I also heard they were working on a remake of Logan's Run. Agian, the age of the film makes a remake today a better idea than remaking films that came out in the 80's and 90's.
I think this all came to a head for me today when I read about the reboot, yet again, of Batman. ENOUGH!
