    From a movie-goers perspective....They've been done already. I want something new to see. Not just a remake of something that I've already seen and is probably not as good as the original anyway.

    Three biggest problems with Hollywood:

    1. Remakes
    2. Movies from old TV shows
    3. A bunch of pampered "children of former stars" in all the movies. (Nepotism run amuck!)
    This is my biggest problem with movies nowadays. I rarely even attend.

    I'll give you a prime example of an unoriginal money machine: Tim Burton.

    Most of his movies are Disney classics, he just gets notable stars to play them, and enhances the visual effects. But the story line is average at best.
    I can't stand him, not one bit.

    I feel like nowadays, in order to have a successful movie you need:
    1. An old classic
    2. 3D
    3. A bad plot, but nice visuals. See Avatar.

    EDIT: There seems to be no originality when it comes to movies nowadays. I know it's hard since everyone has produced everything under the sun, but don't expect me to pay $12.95 for a movie ticket.

    As for Gatsby, it's one of my favorite books, and I LOVEDDD the original film. I would normally gag at remakes to a classic book such as that, but Leonardo Dicaprio is in it, and as far as I'm concerned..he's never been in a bad movie..not one that I could think of.

      Its not my generation I'm talking about. Its the fact that so many films are remakes.
      There may be fewer great films today but that's mostly because they don't make as many films as they used to.
      "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" was very good. (But I only saw the German version)
      Saving Private Ryan, and ANY Terantino film. Many good films these days. Just be original...that's all.
      A prequel to KillBill would be sick. But Bills dead in real life. Accidentally choked himself masturbating in Bangkok.
      I always wished they showed Pai Mei teaching Kiddo the 5 point exploding heart technique, or showed more of him training her.
