I know there was recently a thread about the remake of an 80s movie (I think it was The Karate Kid) were this topic got touched on a little, but after I read this afternoon that there's plans to remake They Live - one of the greatest cult classics of the past 30 years - I'm just fed up with it all. Watchmen? GI Joe? Harry Potter? The Hobbit? Those are all films that aren't even released yet... Has Hollywood honestly run out of ideas? Can they only remake films or use preexisting source materials (like comic books and television shows)? What the hell happened?! I mean, I can see maybe redoing a film from the 40s or even 50s (and even then I don't condone it, it's just more understandable) but stuff as recent as They Live simply does not need to be remade; not to mention the fact that the filming and tone is just about perfect for what the film is meant to be as-is. At least TV networks, for all the remakes they do, throw out an original concept from time to time (though admittedly awful, usually).
