For the longest time, well-known stories from the past have been re-imagined in different forms over time. But an occurrence that has come back only recently is the rebooting of long-running movie series (especially those based on comic books). Many people tend to have a problem with this, calling the studios, "money whores who don't pay any attention to original ideas". Well, do any of you understand why they do this? The point of a reboot is to re-invent something that has either lost it's charm over time or is loosing money. Now obviously, the companies need a steady income, and if you were running a business, you can't keep going on without a steady income. No studio will set out to make a bad movie because it's bad for business. It's the job of the filmmakers involved that the film turns out good. The thing is that these studios must invest MILLIONS of dollars into these projects. And if it gets shit from the critics and doesn't do well at the box office, they drop it and start over. And the whole part about "original ideas" is just bull-crap. There are MANY movies with original ideas, they just become overclouded by the summer blockbusters and more well known properties. I think everyone should just think of these things through the eyes of a businessman trying to run a company that needs a ton of money to keep on going.
