More often than not movie reboots leave us with disappointing results. We get movies coming out 20+ years after their predecessors and despite all advances in film and technology the reboots often can’t hold a candle to the original.
However, on a rare occasion we’re treated to a reboot that decides not to just rehash the same story but instead to reinterpret that material and go a different way. In this way these movies can be night and day of each other and the results can be amazing, giving us something new while reminding us where it came from.
