Another unnecessary remake...Arthur

I'm feel like a broken record bitching about remakes all of the time, but it seems like it's weekly I find out Hollyweird has signed off on another reboot of some film that has already been made.
I am at the point that I really don't care if they remake films that were average in the first place but leave the iconic characters alone.
Russell Brand is going to give it a go to a character Dudley Moore personified and is still a great performance to this day that hasn't got old.
How do they possibly think they can improve a film that was nominated for 4 Academy Awards and winning two; for original song and supporting actor ( John Gielgud ) and Dudley Moore nabbing an Oscar nod for his much iconic Arthur character.
I am beginning to feel like Hollywood is scared of originality. They are basically insulting our intelligence these days thinking this is the kind of movies we want. That's why I am always on the look out for independent movies with original writers and stories. I wouldn't waste my time with a remake of Arthur. I have already seen the movie. There are so many more original stories to be seen and heard if you just keep your eyes and ears open.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
