  • STOP REMAKING EVERY FILM EVER MADE YOU FESTERING, MALODOROUS, IGNORANT, FECKLESS
  • ASSHATS!

    Whatever happened to any sort of originality?

    Normally I’d agree with you but in the case of Robin Hood, I’m happy for them to keep trying until they make one good one

    Which film is this a remake of?

    You know, when they remake a film, you can still watch the old one.  Or old dozen or so in this case.

    There have been good remakes anyway.  The Fly with Jeff Goldblum in it was a good one. Also invasion of the body snatchers iirc was a remake, no?

    Robin Hood films are made all the time. It’s not a remake it’s just another interpretation of the legend. If they ever touch Back to the Future though I will cry

    I take it you prefer the Erol Flynn version.

    I just seen earlier that they have remade Papillon. Papillon FFS! Do they think they are going to improve on Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman?

    Someone with a Kevin Costner mancrush has got a bee in his bonnet.

    TBF the bar isn’t set very high if comparing to Prince of Thieves (excluding Alan Rickman who I won’t hear a bad word about)

    This. They are new versions of an old story. Of course, there are some films which are original, some are good, and it’s difficult to imagine it being done better, but sometimes the original is dire, and is begging to be remade by someone with a clue. The Kevin Costner version is so full of plot holes it could easily be redone.

    I really want a new version of Zelazney’s Damnation Alley, the first and only one was utter crap.

    Saw the trailer for the new Robin Hood film last week while we at the cinema. It looks utterly awful. Woeful beyond belief.

    Actually, that could be pretty good I reckon.  Originals look dated now.

    Which one are you raging about? Errol Flynn? Kevin Costner? Men in Tights? Russell Crowe?

    Star trek films are all much the same,

    There’s talk of remaking Clueless. Now that really is a travesty.

    Er, they already have.

    Men in tights?

    Exactly.

    They are a product of the time though. I’d be interested to see a different take on them as opposed to an attempt at remaking them.

    Well I have just found out that I have been cast as Robin in our local valley Panto. I hope I can do the remake justice. I im to emulate Errol Flynn where possible 😉

    It’s not eight o’clock yet, there’ll probably be a new one before 9pm.

    Then another on Tuesday,

    Should have tried harder in history.

    There were black people in Britain around the time of the Romans

    Taking of Pelham 123 – all the remake added was an explosion and John Travolta looking like he was chewing a wasp all the way through. Insulting pointless.

    The point of a remake is to generate money for a movie studio, hopefully in a less risky manner than with a new film property.

    Artistic considerations rarely figure highly.

    In the case of Spiderman, Sony remake it so often in order to prevent the movie licence reverting to Marvel (IIRC).

    To be fair to CFH, this one does look almost as terrible as the Kevin Costner one.

    Totally agree with flashy here. Some remakes are just total tosh and seem hell-bent on destroying any decency within the title ( King Arthur and his bunch of Cockney Rebels anyone?) Or the Point Break monstrosity….

    A remake should be sensitive to the original or at least be slightly betterer.

    A ‘continuation’ apparently, not a remake. Still sounds shite though.

    As no studio has managed to make a sequel that lives up to the original why would anyone think they’d manage to do anything other than screw up a remake?

    I liked the gladiator one where they invaded nottingham forest with loads of boats somehow
