Is this becoming a trend, much like the trend of franchising movies into three or four parts?
I get the desire to tell the version you feel really strongly about. The Hulk is a good example here. Ang Lee, who I am sure does fine work, did a horrible job of representing not only the Hulk, but every character in the story. I can see why it was slotted for a do-over.
I believe that a rebooting a movie can be done well and it can be done badly and it's all in the timing. Did the Hulk need it? Yes, god yes. Does Spiderman? Not really. What is next, reboot the Harry Potter saga with new actors? Didn't like the Avengers? Let's reboot that too...
The American novelist, Ellen Glasgow said, “All change is not growth, as all movement is not forward.”
I want to see a great movie, done with care and passion. I don't want to see someone else's version of a great movie with the "New Improved" label on it.
