There is nothing wrong with Disney going out and deciding that they’re going to remake every single movie they’ve ever made before. What is wrong is doing that without a specific, new, take on whatever movie it is they’re making.

The spin has to be better than that. Think of the spin to “Star Trek” that is “Galaxy Quest.” See, that’s a spin that works.
