Pointless Remakes

One of these days, Hollywood is going to take the whole remake thing to its logical extreme and, rather than filming a sequel to a film, just go ahead and do a remake instead. You know, rather than having Gus Van Sant redo a Hitchcock movie shot-for-shot, just have Gus Van Sant redo a Gus Van Sant movie shot-for-shot. Get the same cast, reassemble as much of the original production crew as possible, and create a perfect replica of the original. It's not all that far off from reality, when you think about it.
