That's why they keep screwing it up. They're trying to recapture the magic of something while fundamentally changing it. That's an inherent contradiction.

I'd rather see a half-dozen Universal horror movies done in the original spirit for television than one done entirely differently for theaters. What they're doing is selling these movies based just on their names, and not their content.
That's especially true of things like the Mummy sequels which barely topped an hour long. They also come from a time when they would be accompanied by a newsreel, a short feature, and a cartoon if not a whole other feature with them.
