The only good thing I can say about them is that after making the worst big budget superhero movie of all time they wisely got out of that genre.
I hear you - personally, after the utter failure of Van Helsing I have my doubts about them. Seriously, how can you screw up the old Universal monsters? they're so great in concept and look that you'd actually have to go out of your way to mess it up as it would actually be easier to get them right than wrong.

They're still the studio that gave me JAWS though so the romantic in me will always have a glimmer of hope that they can get their act together at some point.

Don't be ashamed of the source material when making your adaption. EMBRACE it.
