This may come as a shock to you, but "new is always better" is not, to the best of my knowledge, a universally agreed-upon maxim.
There is the wide gulf between not better and almost walking out. The question becomes is it because of the artistry itself or concerns that something was remade
To each their own. I didn't hate RoboCop (2014), and there are some aspects of it that are done very well (PG-13 body horror; the overall design aesthetic; Keaton playing Evil Steve Jobs), but the script is a mess and the pacing is so horribly janky, just all over the place. If it were handled by a less competent director, I can easily see it as a movie I would have considered walking out from.
