Continuations have built-in expectations, too.

Of course, marketing ensures that most movies are being seen by audiences with expectations.

And "Most of the time, the book was better" seems to me to be a confirmation of Sturgeon's Law, not the value of remakes. (Or, if you'd prefer, reboots or re-imaginings -- me, I'm not sure those terms have much use outside of marketing designed to avoid the stigma of remakes).
