Ok, everyone, since Martin Scorsese is going to be remaking his own film, I would
like to know if remakes are necessary when it comes to your viewing palette. To
listen to my opinion just listen to the last ten minutes of the 9th episode of my podcast,
Come On Our Movies.
The questions based on the topic are as follows:
What is the purpose of a remake?
What films should be remade, if any at all. Is it appropriate for directors to redo
their original material?
Should first time directors have the opportunity to take on such a task?
What films should be untouchable in terms of a remake or a reboot?
When is it appropriate to remake or reboot a film or franchise?
Does the quality of the remake depend on who stars and directs or the studio and
Can the same be said for sequels?
What film should have the (dis)pleasure of being remade or rebooted?
Who should star/write/direct?
I look forward to reading your posts.
