Re: Movie Remakes

It would be great to remaster. I've personally given up with any good remakes. I'll watch them when they hit Netflix or maybe the dollar movies.

Re: Movie Remakes

I have the box set of Robocop. 1 is great, 2 is ok, and 3 I like to pretend doesn't exist

---------- Post added at 02:08 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:59 PM ----------

Total Recall is being remade as well and is due out next year.

I wonder if they'll keep the idea that we don't know if it's all the dream implanted by Recall or if it's really all true.

Still not happy about it though

Re: Movie Remakes

I know it's getting way too obvious to even say but Hollywood is getting sooooooooo lazy. According to the article they're looking at Depp, Cruise or Keanu? That's a sure fire way to kill this before it goes anywhere.

Remaking Total Recall is also a horrible idea. The movie doesn't need to be remade. It had a good story and a hilarious Arnold.

And the new lead in Total Recall is Colin Farrel

I can kind of see Hollywood remaking movies that were not hits, but they've just gone overboard. They'll remake anything now, even if it was a good movie when it was first released.

They're rebooting Spiderman already, and the talk is Batman will be rebooted again after The Dark Knight Rises is done.

Hollywood has become the land no new ideas. Nearly everything now is a book adaptation, game adaptation, sequel, remake, or comic book movie and in most of the adaptations(especially video game ones) they can't even stay close to the source material.

Re: Movie Remakes

Colin Farrel in Total Recall is just stupid. Same with Fright Night. I'm betting now both will bomb or be critically panned.

In defense of the Batman reboot, Chris Nolan won't be doing any more movies after this next one. Word is Bale is out when he goes so that leaves the franchise wide open for a reboot. Plus everything else DC does is hot garbage so they don't have much choice.

Re: Movie Remakes

I Am Legend: remake of The Last Man On Earth

I'm not saying it's wrong to reboot Spiderman or Batman but they are doing it way too quickly.

Re: Movie Remakes

How quickly are they doing Batman? The last Nolan directed one isn't even out yet, is there already a new one in production?

Spiderman 3 was so awful it was almost like they did it intentionally so they could reboot the series. We need to wash that slate clean and start over.

I don't think there is a new one in production. The last Nolan one is still being worked on so I don't think any talk of the reboot will be until the Nolan one is out.

Not sure how quickly they are rebooting Batman but the fact it's already been stated they would makes me think it won't be long after the last Nolan movie comes out

Re: Movie Remakes

I wouldn't call the LOTR movies a remake. Unless I'm forgetting something there was only a animated TV movie series and a radio show before the big budget movies, right?

Re: Movie Remakes

Yeah but that's also animated and it's not even the whole trilogy. I don't see the new movies as a remake since they're live action and complete. Maybe I'm wrong but that's my feeling on this.

I am Legend is an adaption of the novel I am Legend, which was the inspiration for The Last Man On Earth.
The goal was to make an adaption of the novel, not remake The Last Man On Earth, it's nitpicking, but it is what it is.
It's sort of like how War of the Worlds was not a remake of War of the Worlds, the newer one was more based on the original novel which the radio broadcast was based upon.

Remakes can be good, unless you are remaking something that cannot be remade. Something where a change in the casting wouldn't work or something where the original is generally regarded as a classic. That is why a remake of Escape From New York or a remake of The Highlander couldn't work.

Yet both are being remade(they are both in development but nowhere near shooting). Yippee

Re: Movie Remakes

I'd not watch either of those. No one else can be Plissken.
I guess The Highlander might be able to work, if they had a Scottish actor, as opposed to a French one, like they had.

Re: Movie Remakes

I don't see how their nationality has anything to do with acting capabilities of an actor to play a role. I'm looking forward to the Highlander remake, but I"m not going to get my hopes too far up. I'm just going to have to judge it when it comes out.

Re: Movie Remakes

To be fair it wasn't the choice of actors that killed the Highlander series, it was the horrible stories they choose to make. The TV series was well done because it had a stable, continuous story. If they decide to stop throwing darts at a board when picking plots then we should be ok.

Re: Movie Remakes

I have to agree with you there DB. The plot changes from movie to movie was messed up.
