    People don't want them Gunny. Hollywood is run by boneheads.
    Underdog went over like a turd in a punchbowl.

    yes but the quality was just that. A well done remake wouldn't bother me but it needs to be well done.
     
  3. They have been making movies out of old TV shows and comics and cartoons and older movies for decades now. Nothing new. Even Beowulf, which was an ancient story, is anything but original.

    I don't mind it as long as the movie is good. I certainly would prefer a little originality, but even a remake that is good is fine by me.

    That's just the thing. Batman is nothing like the comics. Burton never followed the comics, and Nolan is doing his own thing.

    It's not being handled properly in the sense that it is following the comics, but most people love it. Is it because it is a good movie?

    We've matured a bit as an audience, so this Batman fits. He's more the product of Frank Miller now.

    I'm fine with remakes that make changes, as long as they make for a good movie. I love the new batman, whether or not it sticks to the comics. So many are just made for money, and the results are just crap for everyone.
