Why go to the movies to see either a remake or some comic book story.

The comic book flicks have been some of the best reasons to go to the movies.
Some flicks, the big eye candy movies, do deserve the big screen treatment. Smaller, more personal-type films are just fine on the tube at home. My biggest objection is the utter lack of originality of the stories. Give me something that's not the third reboot of Spiderman or a plot line that hasn't been done 26 times since Shakespeare swiped it from Bacon. But that would require some risk on the part of the studios and, with $80 million+ on the line, I'm not holding my breath.
