As a friend pointed out, what I'm HOPING for is that the new film offers something new to the old film, and makes us want to go back and watch the old film with the new perspective gained from the new film.
I'm quietly hopeful.
But then again, I was quietly hopeful about Terminator Salvation.
Yes but it's their job to enthuse and drum up interest. It's good to hope, the scenario you describe is the ideal one but more often remakes deliver disappointment and taint the memory of the original. The greater the film the higher the bar is set. So I'm quietly sceptical, it serves me better.
Anyway my flippant reply was just saying if you ask for the general concensus, you have to expect some moans and groans and/or expletives.
