    There is a difference between a sequel and a remake. Aliens sequel was not a remake. The reboot of Battlestar Galactica was better than the original. All of star wars is shite, apart from empire.

    Oh good. Another sequel.

    Looks like a lot of men and white people in that trailer. Tessa must have got paid a few quid then.

    I’m not raycisst , but I doubt there would have been a black guy about sherwood 900 a.d.

    Really? 10,000 years ago, most Britons were black*, and there were traders from around the Mediterranean including the phoenicians, coming to Britain and trading with the Cornish anywhere from 1500-300BC. The Romans brought black slaves and troops the Britain, plus there were the Crusades going on, and Moors who held part of southern Spain.

    Now what’s going on with the forum? I just tried to edit my last post to allow that link to work properly, and I get ‘whoops, nothing found’. How can nothing be found, I’d only just posted it!

    I’m not angry any more. Just terminally disappointed.

    I did hear some distressing news that the classic Dirty Rotten Scoundrels may be getting re-made, another all female job.

    I think this is the one that Dan Aykroyd has been working on for years that got binned in favour of the 2016 effort.

    Yup it’s one that’s been planned for years but Bill Murry was never onboard.

    Can’t believe the Searchers has never been remade actually. Not sure I would have liked JW as a person, but he was great in the Searchers, v good in True Grit and also good in the Shootist I thought…

    I’m thinking Ground Hog Day.

    My 8 year old boy thought the new version of True Grit was better after watching both over a week…I is disapoint.

    not a film but tv series – had no idea that “life on mars” was remade for the US market – picked up a box set as stocking filler for mrs antigee and got approval until fired up to find action transferred to NY with “actors” pulled in from car wash duties in LA

    I watched that*, but not the UK one**. I don’t think they ever finished the series’ though? How many in the box set? Harvey Keitel and Christopher from the Sopranos.. quality stuff.

    *because Lisa Bonet
    **because John Simm

    Remaking The Intouchables. Without subtitles and I think set in in the US. My favourite film. My son is outraged. Ironic as None of the Tired clan wanted to watch it originally, but I said give it five minutes and if you don’t like it, I’ll turn it off. They’ve all seen it more than once.

    18 episodes (plus deleted scenes and bloopers!) on 5 DVDs labelled “the complete series”

    quite enjoy but mainly for the nostalgia of gross sexism in the workplace and smoking in pubs etc [stw is now a smiley free zone]

    That new Gummidge is like a cross between Predator and Davy Jones.

    I’ve seen Dumbo! (s’crap)

    With a bit of Freddie Krueger thrown in.

    *wispers* I quite enjoyed Aladdin, and the jungle book remakes

    But I think that was because I enjoyed the originals. Never cared for dumbo.

    Looking forward to the Lion King…

    I think he’s got great taste. I’d take the dude over the fat plank of wood that is a John Wayne any day of the week.

    Spider-Man not a remake either. Just Marvel helping Sony to make proper films involving the web slinger.

    WTF have they done to Wurzel?

    No!

    They cannot re-make the fresh Prince as some sort of coming of age/class/race commentary, especially without the comedy and most importantly without Will Smith!

    It’s just lazy at this point, it’s not “re-imagining” it’s just rehashing.

    Certain things are in and of their times, if a tale or trope is worth retelling then write a new story to do it… I’m with the OP on this, any writer who drafts a script for one of these should be drummed out of the guild.

    Agree. A simple mashing-up would’ve provided a bucket of original material: The Bel-Air Witch Project.

    That Bel-Air thing is just a trailer. Sort of a concept piece.

    Out of them, only Home Alone was any good. But even then the first hour and a half is slow and it only gets going at the end. By modern film standards, the old version doesn’t have the constant action entertainment that kids like.

    how **** desperate must you be to think remaking “cheaper by the dozen” is a good idea !?
