To me it's easy:
Dredd etc is based in another media. Like Spider Man or Hulk. That's a reboot, when you disregard the previous movie and instead draw new inspiration from the source.

A remake is when you redo something that is original. Like Robocop, or Predator or Finding Nemo.

So Amazing Spider Man is a reboot.
