Remakes, Remakes, Remakes

Am I the only one getting sick of movies being remade with new technology (read lots of CGI) but weak(er) plots? I have no problem with franchises that release a new movie, like Nolan's Batman movies, but stuff like the new Total Recall. Looking at the clips, has a bunch, it does provide a different take on the old version but I'm not really sure it's an improvement. Same with the recent Footloose, which should have never been touched in my opinion, among others. Do studios make a ton of money on these crappy remakes or are they just under an assumption that since the original was popular a poorly conceived remake will be equally as adored?
