Reboots are in the air

As some of you may know, Hollywood seems to be in the habit of bringing back old things for profit. Already, a Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, Daredevil, Batman, Superman, and even Jaws are getting remakes. Some of these, like Fantastic Four, really do need a reboot, but Why Spider-Man? Thos three films were awesome! Worse, the reboot will be about Ultimate Spider-Man, which is basiclly an alternate re-telling. It was awful.

The future of Spider-Man cinema?

As for ol’ Supes, DC got lazy and probably canned Superman Returns 2, instead opting for a remake. Again. Sigh.

But the strangest is a planned Wizard of Oz remake. You see, after Alice in Wonderland did well in 3-D, and with Harry Potter coming to a close soon, WB needs some new fantasy films other than Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. So, they are planning a Oz remake. IS NOTHING SACRED ANYMORE?!?

This is Hollywood's fault.

Yeah. Just great. Still, it could be fun seeing it in 3-D. However, the reboots need to stop.
