Remakes are going to happen. Just like covers of songs, movies will be remade. Doesn't mean you have to like them, doesn't mean you have to see them, and it doesn't take away from the original in my opinion.
I remember when I saw Halloween 2, I thought there's no way this could be as good as the first. Well, I was wrong, it was AS good as the first. The second Indiana Jones sucked, but the third one was as good as the first. Because it was just different enough to set it apart.
