Getting a little tired of remakes, its an incredibly lazy trend that is gradually degrading the quality of original output. Whilst i realize this is the guy who dipped his brush very much in donners pallet for superman returns, Singer is at his best being presented with nothing to bog down the expectations. If you go to the cinema with a previous frame of reference for the source material, your going to divide the audience. That's why in my opinion The Usual Suspects and Apt Pupil were films of genuine originality and impact.
In my opinion the original is actually the best take on the Live for Today legend out there, it doesn't need to be re-made, its a classic. There are too many remakes of good music happening now - its just getting a bit stupid.
