I dont know why he wants to remake it though... could be good could be bad, but I think things at least from the fans perspective, are often fine the way they are in spite of the director wanting to redo it with the resources he has now in stead of then.


Yep. I feel the same for 99% of remakes. GEORGE LUCAS I HAET YOU.

But this.. this is going to be stellar! I just know it :)

Eraserhead: Never seen it. :idk: I know of it, but that's all.

I'm waiting for the good movies to start rolling out this year.

It is (IMHO) the best cinematic depiction of a nightmare that I've seen, due to the surrealism and disjointed nature.

Haven't heard of the Evil Dead remake until now. Interesting. I'll wait for reviews to pour in before committing. :snax:

I second this quite accurate opinion. Those of you who haven't seen it, I don't endorse it in any way. It's weird, unsettling, unique, and will subtract an hour & a half from your life that you may wish back. As far as I can tell, it's only purpose is to evoke an unpleasant visceral response. But if you like having the heebjeebies, by all means see it.

My son & I liked, as well. My dater refused to join us, having seen the preview wherein they showed his tail falling off. Apparently, Burton made a short feature of the same name in 1984. I never saw it.

I heard it was a big sweeping wtf fest that never explains itself. Maybe the book will come out soon?

Like 2001... Clarke & Kubrick co-wrote the screenplay loosely based on a short story by Clarke called The Sentinel. The novel was published after the movie's release. I, and doubtless many others, did not get it until I read the book.

-

2010 was good too, eh what? Roy Scheider: "We're gonna need a bigger solar system."

-

Rendezvous With Rama would make a good movie adaptation, wouldn't it?

-

In case you haven't heard them, here are Clarke's Three Laws:

1 - When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.

2 - The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.

3 - Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

I'm hearing only bad reports about Oz, Teh Great & Powerful. I do not like these reports. I wanted this movie to be very good. It shouldn't be difficult for a proven filmmaker to make a very good movie about this subject. I mean, Spidermans 1, 2 & 3 were good, so why not this?

I am ensaddened.

Same. I still want to see it, but I heard what's-his-name in the lead was just horrible. All the critics say so. But then, I tend to disagree with critics the majority of the time, so I dunno.

I have no interest in Oz. Feh. Sounds like yet another film with far too much visual gee-whiz and not enough strength of story.

I'll tell you what I'm actually interested in seeing... "Much Ado About Nothing" from Joss Whedon. No shit.

At first, I was like, MAD when I heard reviewers praising teh OZ writers for coming up with such a great character as the China Doll girl. Um, rtfb people? But then I was like, well, really the original books weren't very great literature after all, were they? If not for the 1939 movie the books would probably have disappeared into obscurity by now. Imho they weren't nearly as entertaining as some others, like Kipling, Stevenson, Milne, Barrie & such. So meh to that fight. Those people can just go argue with the crowd that thinks Roddenberry created sci fi.

Really, the only reason I ever read more than one of the OZ books is because Heinlein mentioned them so often in his novels. In another book, he mentions "Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog)", by Jerome K. Jerome. That book is a hoot, and I thank RAH for bringing it to my attention.

I Thank Him!

"Wool"? I've not heard of it. Therefore, you should read it.
