Now I do see on why that some studios seem to this & it dose have a mixed record say the least. I may be in the minority on this topic, but I think that it's nice to give my take on the subject. I'm not to big not have a flawless movie getting a remake or reboot for many reasons. I think that a film that did it right the first time just needs to left alone & get the love that is deserves.
I do understand that we would like to see that what a classic film in modern bells & whistles comes with great success, but it well not always go over that well. There is a lot remakes that did very well & some did not do very good at all.
There is a long list of movies that been rebooted & remade that I know that I have seen. I wish that I can give you a good throw a list of them all, but I'm not saying on which films that I seen that where a remake or reboot. It's hard to tell if the film a original or not. So I wish that I can tell you the differences from the original & the remake or reboot that followed years later.
As for video games. They to are a bit mixed as well. Now I see that most of the problem is that they try to reinvent the whole series & think that games will love it for the way that it trying to completely change the world that we loved to explore in.
I mean if the game series been dead for a long time & we forgot about. Then I can see that we may like to see it in a different tone & design. At first glace I may not like that redesign & world that it take place in, I will try to be open minded till I get a chase to play it for myself.
There been a few series that did a soft reboot & did some good for franchise. Now for some reasons that I can't seem to get at times. Sometimes a reboot dose get a tons of hate & company dose like to pretend that it never happened is nice to that they where wrong to reboot it in the first place,
Now I can say that there was been one good reboot that I like to talk about that was a dying franchise that did very well. That is the Tomb Raider series. It did go thru a soft reboot & did some good for the franchise. Then years later it gone thru a full out reboot that change the way that we see Lara Croft.
I do have hope that not everything that I like well ever be rebooted & remake. I just wish that I can see a brighter day for all the great movies & video games. I can say that a remake can be done right if somebody is not rushing it out to make a quick buck. I think that a original idea is a safer road then a revised classic.
