One of the things Hollywood does that really annoys me are remakes. If the movie was good enough to start with, there's no reason to make it again. If it wasn't, the idea probably sucked and no amount of tinkering will fix it. One that really annoyed me was the remake of "The Stepford Wives". Great little horror movie from the 1970's. Men are having their feminist wives replaced by compliant robots. Tapped into two great fears of the time- Feminism was destroying the traditional family and we can all be replaced by machines. Fears we've gotten over by 2005, so no reason to remake this movie. but they did anyway, and made it with characters so unlikable you'd want them to be replaced by machines. But the machine versions were really annoying, too. Planet of the Apes- Sucked. The Day the Earth Stood Still- Sucks on toast. Halloween- Let's totally destroy the initial concept by giving Michael Meyers a backstory.
