With all the talk of remaking such classics as "The Godfather" or "Death Wish," you can't help but wonder what producers and movie studios are thinking when they go back into the vault of films made long ago and assuming that resurrecting them is the best idea possible.
Ironically, the "idea" discussion is worth noting since most fans believe that remakes are a movie making crutch, and that writers that are competent story tellers are few and far between.
Any time a movie is remade or a movie surfaces that is nothing more than a television show that is made into a real life, big screen film, fans immediately groan collectively rather than meet the movie with positive marks. That typically is the reaction because original movies, original ideas don't exist anymore, but rather everything that is old is supposed to be new again, accepted by the masses and not viewed as a sad commentary on just how movie making has lost its touch.
What's old, or has already been done, should stay left alone, and some movies especially were remade and wreaked of desperation and weren't even done well.
That means they shouldn't have been redone at all.
