Enough of the remakes

6344955477_19ce98fd28_zIt seems as though movie remakes are the new black. Originals can’t stand alone anymore as Hollywood keeps trying to profit from loved, older films.

The whole remake saga over the past few years has been slightly overdone and leaving us wondering which film will be ruined next.

But I won’t be too harsh on all of the recent remakes. The new Jungle Book was actually quite entertaining considering I had never watched the original. Maybe that’s why I enjoyed it, no childhood memories at stake.

Aladdin fans have been upset this week when it was announced Guy Ritchie will direct a live remake of the Disney classic.

People aren’t convinced it will do the original justice, especially when it comes to replacing beloved Robin Williams.

Who can blame them? It’s kind of like replacing Health Ledger with Jared Leto – still commendable but not the same.

The UK Telegraph says even more of our faves could be set for a reboot including…

  • Splash
  • Mary Poppins
  • Jumanji
  • Drop Dead Fred
  • Honey I Shrunk the Kids
  • Police Academy
  • IT
