Having seen these films a long time ago, I don’t see how they warrant sequels/remakes.
Especially now that they are fairly old.
Point Break = 1991 (24 years ago)
Independence Day = 1996 (19 years ago)
Why is Hollywood remaking/providing sequels to 80’s -90’s film franchises?
What is the point? Money I guess and not wanting to color outside the lines.
I don’t think Point Break really needs a remake and the first Independence Day was ok but a sequel?
Don’t get me wrong, sequels and remakes can be fine when developed with consideration and providing something fresh (Mad Max: Fury Road, Mission Impossible, James Bond, etc).
This is probably the number one thing that is disconcerting to me about Hollywood because as much effort they try to put into a remake/sequel they could instead spend on a new concept.
Did I mention how pissed off people are about the Point Break remake?
