Some say it is but i dont see any point in remakes.. yes a few firms are made better than the previous ones but mostly remakes do not do good as ppl have an image of the original and it takes a lot to break the old image and make a new one... and also are we starving on stories that we make remakes?? what do you say??

Most of the remakes are no good .. they usually try to "spice it up" more and they end up spoiling it.. I can't remember any remake that I liked more than the original.. remakes of things like King Kong with all the new stupid graphics was really bad, a lot of people liked it but I thought it was a crime ! .. of course the 80s movie was a remake of an older movie but the original was very old and primitive black and white..

It depends a lot on the movie. I've seen several remakes that were better then the original. I've also seen some that were lousy in comparision. I don't have a problem with them making remakes especially of some of the much older films. Now ones that were made only twenty years ago? I think it's a bit early to make remakes of those.

Remaking of film depends on the concept of the story,If it is good to people in some way,then we can remake the film.
