Do Remakes Ruin The Originals?
On the last episode of Face Rockin’, we announced what’s going to be the topic of discussion in this upcoming Monday’s episode: Remakes.
If you have an opinion on the topic, post it on Facebook, Twitter, or in the comments section below and it’ll be included with your name/handle in this Monday’s episode of Face Rockin’ in a text graphic. Or you can upload a video to YouTube of yourself explaining your thoughts and send it to our YouTube inbox, and it could be chosen to appear in the show in a fan video segment.
Here’s the topic explained in detail:
Did you know that there was a Hansel and Gretel movie being made? Yep. It’s a dark and gritty story with adult versions of Hansel and Gretel, and it takes place after they killed the witch in the oven. (I might watch it because Hawkeye from Avengers plays Hansel.) Anyway, this isn’t the first time a classic story has been re-imagined by Hollywood. We just had two Snow White adaptations in theaters, for instance. And it’s not always fairtytales, sometimes people remake older movies (King Kong) or adapt books (Lord of the Rings). So how do you generally feel about this? Do you like it when people reboot/remake/adapt classic stories? Do you think some stories should just be left alone? Is it blasphemous to the original material? Or is it a good idea? Do you think it brings awareness to the original product if a new generation can enjoy a great story remade for the modern day? Do you look forward to seeing what creative spins new writers will put on the material?
Tell us what you think! It doesn’t just have to be movies, either. Several TV shows, video games, and even songs have been updated and remade for modern audiences. Give us examples of which remakes and adaptations you do and don’t like, and tell us how you feel about the topic.
So what do you think? What’s your opinion? Share it in the comments below or on Facebook or Twitter and we’ll include it in the show. Or upload a YouTube video stating your thoughts and send the link to our YouTube inbox and it might be chosen to appear in the show. The only requirements are that you keep your opinions concise and free of profanity and offensive content.
