  • STOP REMAKING EVERY FILM EVER MADE YOU FESTERING, MALODOROUS, IGNORANT, FECKLESS
  • I waiting for the LOTR remake in 2040

    Amazon funded TV series in development right now, so no need to wait that long – probably be out in a couple of years time.

    There’s a big difference between making a film of a book and a series of a book. So that’s allowed IMO.

    Well out of that list none will take any harm of being remade as they were all shite.

    “Lana is a true visionary – a singular and original creative filmmaker – and we are thrilled that she is writing, directing and producing this new chapter”

    Or to put it another way “From the people who brought you Jupiter Rising and Cloud Atlas.”

    I actually quite enjoy the loonacy of the Warchowskis’ recent output. Cloud Atlas is one of my favourite ‘it’s so bad it’s good’ movies!

    It’s not a remake – it’s The Matrix 4.

    What? The Tim Robbins one?

    @Drac re: Dambusters – my mate reckons he’ll make it into a three part epic with lots of lingering shots of the crews being trucked across Scampton to dispersals.

    Didn’t Neo die in Matrix 3? I’m sure he did.

    Turd of a film anyway.

    That’d be a shame, doesn’t need to be THAT long. 🙁

    I don’t think that was a serious comment.

    It’s Jackson. I wouldn’t be so sure.

    I know it’s a sequel, not a remake, but is there really a single person in the entire world who wants to see another Rambo movie?

    I wasn’t aware of this until recently….

    I don’t think you can make a bad movie better by just remaking it….

    Ace another Rambo switch off entertainment instead of trying to do a clever storyline that is predictable and dull.

    I parsed that about 10 times before I think I understood what you intended, but I’m not really sure.

    Yes, I’m looking forward to it.

    Looking at the Rambo trailer I’m hoping to get some home security tips for protecting the garage! I’ll be watching it (but maybe waiting until its on telly).

    Another Rambo film, I could get behind. I mean, it’s been diminishing returns since First Blood so meh, yet another brain out action flick.

    But remaking The Princess Bride though? That’s a very very bold notion indeed. That will go one of two ways and I suspect it’ll be the Not Good one. About the only person I can think of that might possibly get away with it is Joss Whedon.

    True. FB was a very good, post-war drama. The rest were just wham bang boom films. Fun, but not in the same space as First Blood.

    Took my little girl to see the Aladdin remake at the cinema last weekend.

    Fair play to Will Smith for having a crack at it but Robin Williams is a hard act to follow and it just lacked the ‘zing’ and fun of the original. I thought a proper comedian with a distinctive voice like Chris Rock, Jim Carrey or Will Ferrell might have done a better job.

    A plodding pace too in a few parts and it doesn’t help that the way they’ve animated the animals means they completely lack emotion. Poor casting too for the other characters I thought. My littlun completely lost interest by about 2/3s of the way through.

    The only good part was the carpet, and that was no better than what was in the original.

    First Blood is a great film and all the others (especially 3) are firmly in so bad it’s good territory. New one looks a bit like Home Alone on a farm without Joe Pesci.

    Oh Frak Cylons are returning

    The new show will be “an updated, more modern look at the world” based on the 2004 edition, THR says, not the 1978 original. The show will be helmed by Sam Esmail, who is best known as the creator of Mr. Robot. The final season of Mr. Robot will be airing this fall, freeing Esmail up for other projects. He will reportedly also be heading up two other series for the streaming service, including an adaptation of the classic 1927 film Metropolis.
    In a tweet posted after this story was originally written, Esmail clarified that the show is not a straight remake but instead something of a spinoff, “because… why mess with perfection? Instead, we’ll explore a new story within the mythology while staying true to the spirit of Battlestar. So say we all!”

    Bring on Rambo, sorta film I can go watch with the old man.

    Make it about a Mexican trying to cross Trump’s wall but with echoes of Le Carre’s Berlin books.

    I would look at the PB remake the same way as ghostbusters… you already have a nigh-on perfect movie, the remake can only ever be worse, what’s the point?! (I mean, money obviously, But artistically… why would anyone respectable take it on?)

    i hear they’re making a sequel to the greatest movie of all time, Coming to America! not sure how i feel about this…

    he’s not as funny as he used to be, but at least it will have (and be written by) Eddie Murphy (and Arsenio Hall). Plus… Wesley Snipes! Who is actually cooler than ever now IMO!
