Debate of the Day: What’s a Film Franchise You Actually Want Rebooted?

In this era of Hollywood, what’s old is new again, and classic franchises from all over movie history are getting rebooted or sequelized left and right. Sometimes the reasons are obvious (Tron with massively updated effects), sometimes they are not (Nightmare on Elm Street, with more realistic burn victim makeup!), but most are supremely unnecessary and reek of a culture lacking in ideas.

But that being said, sometimes there are remakes that are pretty damn good. Lest we forget movies we like have been based on older films, Ocean’s 11, The Fly, Scarface even titles like True Grit are remakes. Reboots and sequels have been tougher, with new Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Terminator, Alien and Predator movies falling short of the originals by a mile. Sometimes however, we’re surprised by reboots like The Karate Kid, which by all accounts should be terrible, but actually manage to be worthwhile.

I guess the question is, are there movies that you actually WANT to see re-imagined for 2010 and beyond? A series that you think might gain something from our new wondrous special effects technology, and stable of good looking actors and actresses? Off the top of my head, I’m thinking of things like Neverending Story, Top Gun, Lethal Weapon. I don’t know, there are probably more, but I’ll solicit ideas from you guys instead. What do you think?
