It seems that most of the movies produced these days are remakes or sequels or adaptations. But is that really a bad thing? Can they still be called “original”?
I turn 38 in a couple of weeks. If you think that’s going to stop me from loving the same kinds of things I loved as a kid, then you’ve got another think coming. An adult is merely a kid who has reached a certain age, and a kid is merely an adult who hasn’t reached that age. No adult should feel bad about enjoying things that are “meant for kids”.
