Website vintage everyday reposted NME’s list of 14 Old School Sacred Movies That Should Never be Rebooted.
Included in the list are some of my favorite movies: Goodfellas, The Godfather and Annie Hall. Saying you can never remake these is bullshit.
It’s like saying you can never cover a song by Led Zeppelin or The Beatles. You can do it, but there’s a good chance you’re going to fall short of the original. It’s great when an artist gives the world a whole new perspective on something we’re very familiar with.
My problem with Hollywood isn’t the reboots per say, but the laziness of the reboots. The goal of the Hollywood machine isn’t to offer a fresh perspective and reinterpretation of an existing piece of art but simply to make a new copy. Maximum profit with minimal effort.
