Re: The Black Hole Remake

On the subject of remakes in general, it seems to me that some of the more well-regarded ones are the ones that are quite a departure from the source material. The Fly is nothing like its predecessor other than the very basic premise, similarly The Thing vs The Thing From Another World (both well regarded, whereas the more faithful 2011 take not so much), A Fistful of Dollars vs Yojimbo, Magnificent Seven vs Seven Samurai and son on. Yet people often get up in arms when there's a departure from the source so go figure.
