I'm sure you've noticed lately that Hollywood tends to be doing more remakes of classic movies and TV shows. Just about every year, there's a new film or TV remake. Recently, I saw an advertisement for the Dynasty remake on CW. Sure the new Dynasty has the drama and catfights that made the original a hit, but in my opinion I don't see this remake being a hit. But that's the way it is with Hollywood remakes, most of them are flops, although you occasionally have a hit. What do you think about Hollywood doing all these remakes?

I think they will get the views for these remakes, solely for the title. I do not think however, they are going to be good. I would rather see new stuff and leave the old good ones as they are the ones that people know and love.

For the most part, I think it's best to leave the originals and best not to do a remake. Some remakes that I have seen have turned out pretty good, but others just didn't work for me. I guess it just depends on the movie/TV show and how things turned out.

Shows like that on the CW don't usually work, although the 90210 remake aired for awhile. The Melrose Place remake bombed. I saw they are remaking Miami Vice..oh boy. For every successful and great Lethal Weapon remake there is a pointless Rush Hour. Just like you said, there is only an occasional hit.

All these remakes tell me that Hollywood is running out of original ideas or possibly is not reading many books. I give remakes a chance if I liked the original, but Dynasty had a top notch cast. How do you recast Linda Evans and Joan Collins.
