Sounds good on pape, but think about the reboots that you'd miss out on:
The latest Batman incarnation.
Thomas Crown affair
Man on Fire
(to name a few)
then there are the adapation of films from foreign language films like
Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Italian Stunt Job
How many times has James Bond script been given a new location, new gadget and perhaps most importantly a new bond girl while following a similar plot development? There have been a ton of great Bond Films.
A good movie is a good movie, no matter how old or often its been repeated. If its well shot and well acted, then it turns into a good movie.
We don't need to boycott sequals, remakes or reboots, we need to boycott bad movies. What is bad is highly subjective, so good luck with that.
