The best reboots are the kind that doesn't necessarily chuck all previous continuity to the abyss but still reaping the benefits of a clean slate
Mortal Kombat (2011)
even though its a retelling of the first three games the story starts where the last game leaves off; despite Inferno being dead the villan and Raiden are still alive to compete for the "God Like Power" The Villan wins and Raiden in a desparate attempt to save the future sends a message back in time to his younger self to "have him win" weither its the same timeline or not it acknowledges that the events of MK Armegeddon happened despite the now altered timeline
i'll just let John Mathers character explain it
"we'll reboot the reboot"
I'm not clear on this but apprantly the Flash runs across time and space and somehow has restarted everything, with him and someone cloaked in pink being the only ones who know of this

Re: The Best Kind Of Reboots
Nothing is wrong with reboots, I don't understand peoples problems with them. A story was told in that universe over there, and now we'll get one in this universe over here.
