There are two ways of taking a science fiction classic and bringing it to the screen: You can bring it up to date, setting it in the present day and revamping the characters accordingly, like Steven Spielberg's War Of The Worlds. Or you can set it in the era when it was written, and painstakingly recreate the time and place that gave birth to it, like Zack Snyder's Watchmen movie. Which route do you think works better for movies of classic novels?
