Re: CARRIE remake moving forward

I say this over and over and over and over but enough with the crappy remakes. They never do well. What made them favorites originally can't be recaptured--the writers, the actors, the specific point in time they came out. They never live up to the original and are always(BSG excepted) inferior--Karate Kid, Charlies Angels, Bionic Woman, Lone Ranger, Three Stooges, Flintstones, V, Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, 90210, Melrose Place, Knight Rider, A-Team, Hawaii 5-0, Lethal Weapon, Munsters, Friday the 13th, The Rockford Files, Dallas and the list goes on and on.

Here's an idea come up with a new idea that fans will be nostalgic over in 2 decades the way these shows/films have been rather than ruining a show by resurrecting it. They seem to think that by using a show fans enjoyed once upon a time that it will somehow cover up the crappy writing--newsflash crappy writing is still crappy writing. And I hate the way they try to give them the shallow sensibilities of our contemporary pop culture. The 70s, 80s and 90s had a certain pizzazz to them that is noticeably lacking in the 00s--everything is fast, flashy, artifical with a heavy emphasis on reaching out to the dumb girl generation who loves My Super Sweet 16, Lindsey Lohan and Facebook.
