*^So the new Robocop trailer is out, which got me to thinking. When people complain about remakes and reboots, is it truly because they're annoyed that Hollywood isn't coming up with new and original programming or because they don't want to see something they love and respect tarnished by a new actor/story/director? I'm sure it's a bit of both, but it's interesting to see people on facebook and twitter get outraged over the trailers for some remakes but seem happy or excited for others.

*I can't believe I forgot to post this a few weeks ago but OMG! The Burrow has been assessed by a real estate agent to determine its worth. That must be an awesome place to work. (Via Book Riot)
