That is something I disagree with. If a remake's poorly received and people keep hearing that the original was better I think people would seek the original. But if the original and the remake suck what are you going to do?
But there is something I'd like to ask you Wasabi, if you see a movie and hate it & someone goes to remake it what happens then? Do you think that the remake could be better and you will watch it or will you try to defend the original just cause a remake's coming?
