Some remakes are garbage
Some are gold.
Honestly I do not care. Sometimes the original seines suck as well.
Take "Kingsmen" which is gold by all means.
Take "Kingsmen 2" which is even more gold.
But then came COVID and "Kingsmen 3".
A. They bashed Rasputin and his dancing and made him into a cartoon.
B. They clearly had the Jew Money-lender operative manipulating war. I have nothing against that which could have been the entire movie.
C. They made the presidents window wide open when he had a lady in his office. I mean omgsh Prez commits adultry it is the end of the world.
D. The only part of the movie that was fun was father getting revenge on his son. And the flash-back romance. That is it.
The fact they did A and B is what made me felt robbed. They tricked me out of my time and money to see garbage and propaganda.
Dumb and misses the point. Same with Videogames.
What they are doing is erasing the past and causing disharmony among the consumer base. I remember being myself. Now myself is considered wrong.
Take the videogame translation of "Mystical Ninja 3' on the SNES/SFC.
One LGBT cry-baby tried so hard to get attention because they did not like the dialog ( freedom ) over something from the 1990's because it mentioned a term for a person who is pretending to be another gender. Like a guy dressed up as a girl. Then a bunch of other well known videogame peeps joined in to bash the translator.
So instead of brushing it off and giving them all the finger. They just announce they just quit. This person has been translating from the late 1990's.
We are literally living in a USSR mind-police state.
Take " Evil-dead". When they did the original Evil-Dead they made it unique
but it was already like a comedy so the next movie ( ED2 the remake ), they made it a comedy, which was stilll horror but it was amazing horror. The third movie actually made sense and was even more of the previous. Then they did the tv series which was okay. Kinda meh and the videogames which was and is always funny and enjoyable to a point.
But then they did two remakes in the last couple of years. The first one was kinda lame because they dissed Anime and made Ash a girl. The second ( Rise ) made it a continuation but different actors with different names. It is more like they made a movie for the sake of making the moives... like how "Galaxia"
a space-scifi-drama-comedy like got turned into an adult-movie ( like one of those movies that does not hide sex ), with cheap special effects. If they made a Galaxia then they could just continue it, and not erase the past and pretend "it did not happen".
Take "Little Shop of Horrors". The whole point of the original was to show off "people who are no good" and while it was discriminating in my opinion did a far better job of being entertaining. The writing made sense like somebody was trying to stress a point while making it something joyful.
The people killed/murdered are
A Tramo ( Bum )
A Lady of the Night ( prostitute/hooker/harlet )
Semore - A useless putz who just needed some self-a-steem coward murderer.
The Plant - which was the closest thing to being a person of African decent, with barely any vocals.
What stands the test of time is that 1930's Olive-Oil ( Audre ) was a beauty. She was coming on to Se-more. Makes me think of highschool or college girls I knew. I could use me some Olive-Oil.
When they made they remade it into a musical and then the movie they went with a "Grease" vibe in fictional 1950's.
They made Audre into a dumb-blonde/innocent blonde over-sexualizing her.
Made the dentist into an evil gangster guy to be bullied into marrying Audre.
They turn al the deaths into musical numbers.
Made the plant into some person of African decent doing musical numbers.
It was beautiful but it is nonsense.
I could imagine them making the plant into god zilla next-time around, or a rapist.
