“You’re totally elitist. You feel like the under-appreciated scholars, but you shit on the people who know less than you. Which is everybody. Sad.”

Why would I want to see a female version of High Fidelity on Hulu (10-episode web series, debuting on 2.14.20) when Stephen Frears and Nick Hornby‘s 20-year-old feature with John Cusack and Jack Black is fairly close to perfect? Will the new version have a reboot of Black’s Barry Judd character? If so, why?

The best remakes or web-series expansions are those based on a film that was okay but not so great. Then you can maybe improve upon it.
