This So, Duh! Pop Quiz could be viewed as skewed toward personal opinion, but you’re wrong. Basically, this is a list of 80’s movies, and you need to decide if it could be remade (REMAKE), if the thought of that happening makes you recoil (RINSE), or if a sequel would even be allowed (REPEAT).
Are there right and wrong answers? You betcha.

- E.T: The Extra-Terrestrial = RINSE
- The Goonies = REPEAT
- Gremlins = REPEAT
- Big = RINSE
- The NeverEnding Story = REMAKE
(SIDENOTE: E.T. and Big should never be touched or retouched. See the re-release of E.T. for proof. A late sequel for The Goonies and Gremlins may become way more likely if the Tron sequel does well, but otherwise, the originals should be left alone. And finally, The NeverEnding Story was cool at the time, but something about it never sat completely right with me. Perhaps a nifty remake could resolve that. (SIDENOTE WITHIN A SIDENOTE: Man… Steven Spielberg used to be The Shit.))
