Lately it seems like there are a lot of movies being remade. My friend and I have discussions on this subject a lot. She says, “A classic movie should never be remade because it tarnishes the original and it makes Hollywood looks lazy.” Is there a lack of imagination with writers? Or is Hollywood just trying to make money off old movies with new stars to reach a new audience? If that is the case, is the younger audience appreciating what the original movie was about?
I think if a classic movie is being remade, it should have the same plot with better special effects. But there are also some movies that should not be remade. So what do you think remake or not to remake?
