I don't think the “Age of Remakes” began all that recently. As a matter of fact, they've been doing remakes ever since they've been making movies.
Mainly due to change in the creative/financial relationship structure of the Hollywood film industry.
Movie industry people themselves are publicly complaining about the fact.
