Are all these movie remakes getting out of hand?

In Hollywood, nothing is sacred. Underneath the layers of supposed perfection lies a seedy underbelly of greed and silicone. How could something stay pure in  such an environment? Just look at all these remakes coming out! They’re taking movies we’ve cherished and reforming them into tacky pieces of garbage. It must stop. Or maybe we’re overreacting and that’s just the movie business. Heck, some aren't half bad! What do you think?

Whoever asked for a remake of “The Addams Family,” raise your hand. No? How about “Charlie’s Angels”? “Midway”? The “Princess Bride”? No one? Gee, what a surprise.

There are so many annoying levels to Hollywood’s sudden revamp of anything and everything. For one thing, if the movie was perfectly fine to begin with, why redo it? You don’t touch perfect. It’s like looking at a Caravaggio and saying, “Oh, yeah, people love it, but why not make it current?” If anybody did that, they’d be beaten within an inch of their life.

Then there’s the very not-subtle fact it’s all for a quick cash grab. The movie industry doesn’t really care about art, just cash, which, we can’t blame them, but why not try something new for a change? There must be thousands of good scripts of original content out there, waiting to get produced. Leave the gems alone!

People need to chill. It’s just a movie, 'kay, guys? It’s not a big deal. We’re all aware that Hollywood’s main goal is to make as much money as humanly possible. It’s not like the original movies are going away or are physically damaged by a revamp. They’ll always be there for as many re-watches as one could possibly want.

You never know, but one of your favorite films could be a remake. Take “A Star is Born.” Long before Lady Gaga Joanned her way into the picture, the film had three versions. Yet the film was a total hit, worming its way towards popularity and awards season. That’s got to say something, doesn’t it?

Yes, there are a lot of remakes of movies we already love. But who’s to say they’re not love letters to art forms we already appreciate, or a reintroduction of old media to a new class? It’s repurposed and redistributed, sure, but that doesn’t make it any less likeable. It’s a method of preservation, like touching up a piece of art. Who’s to say it’s valued any less?
