We’re not against films that are labeled as reboots per se, but we are fervently against reboots of films that were made within the last decade. It’s not that the new films themselves are guaranteed to be terrible, but there’s something so crass and terribly money-grabbing about them. It seems like the word "reboot" is code for either: “we fucked up the first time, and there’s no guarantee that we won’t again” or “we can’t wait to wring some more cash out of this franchise while we still can” or “we best churn out some shit fast before the rights to the property lapse.”
