I disagree entirely, some of the finest movies ever made have been remakes: The Magnificent Seven, Unforgiven, The Thing, True Grit, Ran etc. etc.
The list is immense.
I just don't like the idea of re-using an entire concept/idea for a movie. It almost feels like a cop out and cash grab.
That's the problem with much of our creative industry today. It just becomes a way to re-create what was once loved and the nostalgia factor seems to be just as involved in the creative process as much as originality.
I understand that there aren't many original ideas left, but the blatant recycling of ideas just annoys me.
