I may not watch them but I dont get worked up about the remakes....because newer generations just won’t watch the previous versions.
A Star is Born is a good story....and while it would be great to say, hey just watch the Streisand/Kristofferson version or even the Judy Garland movie.....but unfortunately, most (not all of course, but most) people born after 1990 are just not going to do that. So, I don’t begrudge them a version they will watch.
I think we're overdue for another movie about the Titanic, too. Not enough of those yet.
Then fuck newer generations. If they care about film they will find the classics. It's not hard.
Remaking the same movie 90 million times is very lazy.
You know what's funny, people talk about the "newer generations" not being able to find the classics, yet these remakes make money, you know why? Because they have a built in audience already, you know what from? From the original movies.
People know about the classic original films. They just want everything updated because they don't have the imagination to put themselves in a different time period.
THIS newer generation doesn't watch older films. That's because they've been programmed to think anything made before this morning is "irrelevant." Previous generations, however, had no issues watching the original versions of great films.
