    Default The Age of Reboots: Exciting or Unwelcome?

    This age has seen massive amounts of TV/Film re-imaginings of old series. I wanna' know if you guys think reboots - which provide a nostalgic trip into the past but in a new story or rehashed plot - suck, or if they are liked.
    My Wi-Fi, it's gone out . . .

    Default Re: The Age of Reboots: Exciting or Unwelcome?

    They are trying hard, indeed. Reboots are nice to bring back plots from the past, but in my opinion it is difficult for them to surpass the old series. The Sailor Moon Crystal is more accurate to the manga, yet the old one is going to be better in some aspects, such as the OST. Digimon Adventure is trying out a new plot, and I wonder if the personalities of the characters are the same in the new one. Maybe I am turning old? And then there are others like Higurashi, which are trying to look prettier in exchange of rushing things even more than usual. Some do things fine, like Fruits Basket, that happens to be a reboot but goes further in the plot, finally aiming at finishing with the story in an anime point of view. In the end, it depends on your love for the anime itself, treat them as in two different versions in most cases, and you will be fine.

    But if the reboots catch your eyes and you end up watching both, the old one and the new one, then... It is good, right?

    I can only talk about anime here mostly, since it's the media I consume the most. But indeed, this applies to all kinds of movie / series / even books. If an idea worked in the past, nostalgia will be strong and it is very possible to be a success in the present again, even if the whole idea ends up not being positive, you will still catch a decent number of nostalgia fans who will be buying the product or paying for it. And that may attract new audiences as well...

    It depends on if they do a good job or not. I for one have no intention of watching Walker.

    Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.

    to me it just shows that there is a general case of lack of creativity going on. or maybe the desire to cash in on established titles. in any case I think we're doomed to do a sort of reboot always, the hero with a thousand faces they call it.

    some reboots are ok, others are just terrible.

    ^ Quality programming? Then you don't mean the Jodie Whitaker episodes.

    And they totally threw out the canon. How could an incarnation of The Doctor prior to William Hartnell have a Tardis that looks like a police telephone? The chameleon circuit broke down during the first episode of the classic series. Before that, it could take any shape it wanted. Big hole in the storyline there!
