Movie Reboot & Remake Discussion

Didn't find a similar thread, so wanted to discuss movie remakes and reboots.

Some upcoming ones I'm excited about:

http://www.deadline.com/2014/05/mgm-...boot-stargate/
Stargate - with Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin.

http://www.thewrap.com/power-rangers...ilm-lionsgate/
Power Rangers - Lionsgate

http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/05/...d-movie-reboot
Flintstones - Figured it was about time.

http://www.stack.com/2014/05/01/flash-gordon-movie/
Flash Gordon - really hope they handle this well.

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/new...academy-693880
Police Academy - I wasn't too excited about this one, but I like Key & Peele, I think they could make this one good.

And ones I'm not so excited about:

http://www.deadline.com/2014/05/clim...-set-to-write/
Cliffhanger - no idea why.

http://hollywoodlife.com/2014/05/22/...-movie-reboot/
Jem and the Holograms - no clue why this is happening, I don't remember it having that big of a following.

http://insidemovies.ew.com/2013/04/2...d-helms-delay/
Vacation - I don't see this one being anywhere near as good as the original.

http://variety.com/2013/film/news/ed...ve-1200950237/
The Naked Gun - come on. You can't beat Leslie Nielsen.

    I remember seeing the original in the theaters back in the 90's, and the line being around the block and it being packed out like crazy with people in costumes and all that. There was a line for that movie for days. (this was before internet/app ticket purchases, you had to wait in line and hope you got tickets)

    Ed helms is a decent enough side character in his movies I guess but I don't understand why he's the guy leading the charge on remaking 2 classic comedies.

    I'd only ever seen him in Hangover and Arrested Development, I didn't know he had much of a career.

    Really? I love him in the Office. One of my favorite characters from the whole series, except the last 2 seasons, when he turns into a huge dick.

    Those last two seasons with him were brutal. Just completely unlikable.

    No reason to lock it.

    There are people who will attempt to derail threads, but there are a lot of movie fans here as well who will join in on actual discussion.

    If you don't like the topic or want to discuss it, perhaps find another thread to post in.

    A matter of time before I popped in here :-)

    I have expressed my feelings on the matter of remakes quite a few times. For the most part I think they're the worst thing to happen to movies lately. There just seems to be a massive lack of creativity. The only movies or shows that I give a pass to is superhero franchises. 1. because I'm a huge fan and 2. because they're superhero movies. Just like the comics you can have hundreds of adaptations.

    Personally I see no reason to make ANY of those movies on that list. It blows my mind that Hollywood green lights any of these projects. What blows my mind is that maybe 15% of these movies will actually make any money. Let's see...how well did the remake of Red Dawn do? Carrie? Total Recall? Poseidon? The list goes on.
