I've mentioned before how there are some songs that shouldn't be remade. I feel the same way about movies. Nobody would seriously consider remaking Citizen Kane, Gone With the Wind, Glory, or The Sands of Iwo Jima. And I thought most people had learned their lesson with the remake of Psycho. However, leave it to those wishing to reap a profit without thinking of something new. The report is out that Warner Brothers will be remaking Enter the Dragon, Bruce Lee's best film.
I'm pretty sure if people could reimagine Whistler's Mother, they would, if they thought someone would buy it. But that doesn't make it right.
