27. Remake of a Japanese movie and not as good as the original
28. Remake of an existing Hollywood movie that should be left alone as it's a classic
29. A shot for shot remake of Psycho will fail
30. A series of movies with related themes/characters should be limited to three (adaptations of a book series exempted)
31. Book adaptations will remain faithful to the original material (Blade Runner exempted)
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
