Re: REboot... REboot....REboot.

Not sure if they're reboots or just remakes:

War of the Worlds with Tom Cruise

The Day the Earth Stood Still with Keanu Reeves

I haven't seen the second one but neither of these classics needed to be remade.

Oh. Add "The Fog" to the list, too. The remake was just dumb.

I agree the War of the Worlds Tom Cruise was an utter POS. Dont forget the C. Thomas Howell version was worse than awful on the Sky Fy channel.

The difference between a reboot and a remake is somewhat nebulous, but to me a reboot steals the characters and changes the story, while a remake sticks mostly to the original story.

Yeah, quite a blurry line there as something more significant than characters has to change in order to even think about remaking a movie.

Just thought of another one while sitting here: Knight Rider. Yeah, TV series, but they tried rebooting it. Unfortunately, I think they were on the verge of figuring out the right character dynamics in the final few episodes before it was canned.

As for BSG, I do like the original (every Saturday at 9pm on RTN) but the remake is certainly more riveting. IMOHO, that's one that they certainly got right.

Hulu has all the original BSG from '79 available for free streaming via their site....

They also have a fair selection of Anime & Sci-Fi there as well...

I recommend using the Hulu Desktop application for viewing....
