Remake / Reboot / Whatever

What the issue with all of these movie remakes/reboots? Are there no original ideas out there that people could use to make new movies?
Let's not even get into all of the superhero type movies since they have always been remade, but do we really need a new version of Total Recall? Even if it does have Jessica Biel, I don't see the reason. Then we have Robocop coming out as well. They were not "classic" movies to begin with and now we are being subjected them all over again.
Just a quick list of other reboots coming out: Highlander, Jumanji, Star Trek and Judge Dredd.
I wish there was more on TV because I won't be going to the movies any time soon!
