I guess the first question would be: why do you watch remakes? What is it that you're looking for? Do you like new plots (e.g. background story) or new twists or maybe a more aesthetic style? Watching different actors playing the same roles? Do you hope it's going to be better (or maybe not!). Would it be more interesting to remake bad movies instead of the popular cult and blockbuster movies? But what is it about remakes that makes us so curious and excited, eventhough we end up hating most of them?
