Remakes? ... no thankyou

Why does Hollywood insist on remaking masterpieces? Granted, The Magnificent Seven was a good movie (not as good as the original, but at least it varied from the original enough to stand along side it) but otherwise why even try? Do the filmremakers think they can improve on the great? Worst example, the remake of Psycho. It ended up being the most expensive colourisation ever! If anyone decides to remake Citizen Cane it will be time to build a wall around Hollywood and rename it the Asylum.
