So you think that they should remale both the Matrix Trilogy and the Lord of the Rings Trilogy already?!?!
Ok, Casablanca was released in November of 1942, and any movie that is 68 will look old, but that's why it is a classic. Tell me what today's technology will do for Casablanca, and why anyone would be interested in seeing a period romantic drama re-done with modern actors and modern technology?
IMO 5 years is a terribly short time to re-do movies, in fact I would prefer if many would never be re-done... the entire popularity of older movies, sci-fi or not, is that they carry the feeling and look of the time they were made in and there are many who would never give that up for a remake! Including myself...
The Original Trilogy is brilliant in itself just the way it is in it's original presentation... And the prequel trilogy is brilliant in it's new technology. The two gaps in technology separate the two trilogies and make them unique to their period, and it is this separation that makes the whole saga so great, and why I love both equally.
Neither should ever
be re-done, that's just IMO!
