Before the days of Netflix, on demand and streaming video, our TV watching options were limited to what we had in our VHS inventory and whatever was playing on TV at the time. There was no such thing as binge-watching TV shows, and you had to go to Tommy K’s or Blockbuster to get the latest video tape of the movies you wanted to watch. With the digitizing of the TV and movie watching experience came a modernization of the movies themselves. As the ‘old’ versions slowly get phased out in favor of newer, more ‘modern’ takes on the originals, I begin to question whether that is really a good thing. During the past few years, many of the classics I grew up with have been remade including Cinderella, The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast, with several more on the horizon in the next couple of years. I really hadn’t been excited for any of them, until now.
