I've seen a lot of versions of Batman from cartoons to movies. So is Spiderman.
Here in Crunchyroll we have Sailormoon.

Is it a good thing to remake shows and movies? Is it a bad thing? Why they keep doing it? Do you get tired seeing things over and over again? Do you know how to let go and move on?

Were there any movies or shows that had been remade and ruined the experience for you?

What actors and actresses would ruined the remake experience for you?
What actors and actresses would give you orgasmic pleasurable experience for you?

What anime, in your opinion, would you suggest needs to be remake?

Well I think SOME remakes are done to introduce an older series or franchise to a new generation.

There's usually different versions and alterations of visual entertainment and characters in media, especially in American comics. I tend to think of them as re-imaginings rather than remakes because the tweaks in story, a different mood or portrayal and a change of themes. Although I do understand where your coming from and I admit the number of remakes made have increase greatly over the past few years.

As for actors and actresses or anime, nothing comes to mind.

I don't mind it.

still enjoy the remake of sailor moon... but it's nowhere near as epic as the original sailor moon anime. Fighting evil by moonlight... winning love by daylight... and bun-head just doesn't sound as funny as meatball-head

To show the new generation something old by turning it brand new.

They probably have a lot of publicity and made a lot of £££ when the original was released.

Sometimes the fans want to see more.

I think it's kind of a waste, but hey ho some people are into it, right?

Maybe it's just nice to view things in better quality and with another attractive main character.

Well, I'm pretty much getting tired of the remakes of Marvel and DC heroes... Not that I liked them a lot in the first place.

Having remakes of an anime is an awesome feeling to me because it brings those feelings and nostalgia back. Some remakes are better, some are worse.

Perhaps because they have no original and interesting ideas, or are too lazy to come up with any? Not to mention there's probably a bit of the same apathy on the part of (some) of the viewing public, who don't want to make the effort to seek out anything new. Do it once and then move on to something new, I say, but others obviously think differently.

Many reasons. Lacking ideas, it brings in money, it makes older stuff accessible to a younger generation i.e. A 40 year old may have seen Robocop, but say a 12 year old hadn't, there's a remake for them. The experience will be completely new because they never saw the original creation (whether that's good or bad is subjective). That's also why you're not meant to get bored of the same movie being made a different way, it's not neccessarily marketed at you just because you saw the original. In fact you'll likely go in expecting something akin to the original only to be disappointed. I learnt my lesson with the remake of Total Recall, and I love the original much more. As for stuff like Spiderman and Batman, they're technically alternate universes as opposed to remakes. Usually completely different timelines or characters being the heroes, there isn't one original story they keep remaking. As far as anime that could use a remake, Maybe Ah! My Goddess but give it more episodes, I'd also love to see Trigun.
