 There is a difference between reboots and remakes.

@invisioner

If you count movie/TV/mini series, etc...I believe Les Miserables is one that gets remade frequently.

Also notable remakes of remakes of remake: Christmas Carol, Dracula, Wolfman, Frankenstein.

I'm assuming it's easier to adapt and adapt older material because I think these are public domain.

I think someone here on Mania had suggested once that maybe Hollywood should remake a movie that was a failure or never given a fair chance but had potential. I kind of like that idea.

  Hanso- Next thing you know, Manti will be carrying around a volleyball and saying, "Hey meet my best friend, Wilson!"

KD-Were u attempting to "First" this thread in a not so subtle way, and then failed??? LOL

wouldn't Man of Steel be considered a reboot of a reboot?

I'm all for Gremlins coming back. I probably wouldn't see it in the theatre but I'd watch it.

 No no, you can't reboot a reboot.  The reboot applies to the original property.  Man of Steel would be a second reboot attempt but not a reboot of a reboot.

Violator, Manti also believes Santa Claus is real cause he sees him at the mall in December.

So rebooty-ful!

I actually don't mind a return for the Gremlins. Frankly, I was wondering why this wasn't done 5 or 6 years ago in the heyday of 80s remakes. I would prefer a Gremlins 3 with them just showing up in another location though.

I consider all franchise characters endlessly rebootable. Superman, Tarzan, Sherlock and more are supposed to always have continuing adventures. They literally never grow old, just new actors. All you have to do is adapt them to the present time.

I believe Sherlock Holmes and then Dracula have had the most movies. I think its somewhere in the 250s to 270s.

Teo is going to reboot his girlfriend in a few more years.

Am I the only one that doesnt get the CGI hate?  I mean, why wouldnt we want a movie to look more real?  We could use clay and pupets, or we could use CGI, and make it all blend together perfectly.  Now dont get me wrong, it has to be good CGI, but it usually is.  What is the point in a reboot, if we dont use the latest technology to make it look like it was made in modern times.

@hanso - I see what you mean.

I'm all for CGI also if it's good. For close ups though I still think animitronics are good. If they go with The Hobbit quality or Rise of Planet of Apes quality, bring it on!!

I don't get the CGI, reboot or remake hate.

I wonder if people bitched about animatronics like they do CGI. Why use robots or puppets instead of having a dwarf dress up as a monster?
