Everything is a remake now. Either it’s a true remake or just put back in theaters in 3D with no other difference. Directors cannot come up with anything new so they are taking what has already been made and redoing it in a way that they think is better, even though half of the time they end up making it worse. Take “HALLOWEEN II” by Rob Zombie for example, the first remake he did was really good, but with part two trying to take things further, he basically ruined the iconic horror movie villian. First of all, making Michael Myers a giant, what the heck was that about?
That’s just one out of many examples that could be written about the downside to remakes. Now, to move onward to how movies are just going downhill lately, let us talk about “Shutter Island.” Not one person could just sit through that movie one time and understand what they watched. The ending was either rushed or not planned out too well and rumor has it that the director hasn’t cleared up any of the confusion about how it ended.
All that seems to be coming out now are old movies being made into a 3D film and bad remakes. Is going to the movie theater really worth it anymore? If you go it can lead to a disappointment and wishing you hadn’t wasted your money, but yet by not going you’re left with wondering if the film you want to see is any good. It seems that people are just left with a lose, lose situation. However, they’ll still go on a Friday night because most of the time there isn’t much else to do.
