Can't Be Remade,
You can't remake somethings and this is one of them. The original came out when I was still a toddler, freed from the world of bills and responsibilities. So like the protagonists attending the arts high school, I gennuinely believed that I could accomplish anything which I set out to do.
Lots has changed since then. Computers are now a daily part of practically every ones lives. And so are bills. So this film does not seem as magical, even accounting for the 'improved' special effects.
It's naturally lost some of the idealism which made the original a landmark event.
