.... Reboots, if done right can sometimes give more background on a character(s) such as an origin story. Rob Zombie's 'Halloween' is a good example of this. Remakes can introduce a younger crowd to one their parents favorite films such as (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. And then you have the long awaited sequels, 'Blade Runner, Conan' to name but two. Although we have no idea if they will be good I can assure you many people want to see them. I agree that some Reboots/Remakes suck and that it appears that Hollywood has lost imagination but it is all about entertainment and sometimes they pull it off. I always open to a fresh new look. Hell if the movie sucks you can always watch the original.
