Like to know the user experience based on this. Examples Dukes of Hazard, Charlies Angels etc.
Look at it this way. A show has times to develop character and story lines over a couple episodes. A movie may try to cram a whole story ark or even a whole season in only 2 hours or more. That was the exact problem with The Last Airbender film, among other things. – Aaron Hatch9 years ago
What about successful remakes? Like the remake of Footloose, the newer adaptation of Spiderman (with Andrew Garfield) etc (which were actually really good)... – natharmsen9 years ago
I think the jury is still out on Footloose/Spiderman. I think the Beverly Hillbillies movie from the '90s was the best example of a successful TV series to film reboot. Dukes of Hazzard was the first film to which Rolling Stone awarded no stars, so there's the other end of your spectrum. – Kristian Wilson9 years ago
An article that fleshes out the good and the bad remakes (and why they are so) would be quite interesting. – Erica Beimesche9 years ago
