Oldboy

Not sure how I feel about this one. The original Oldboy is one of my favorite movies ever so when I initially heard about a remake I was pretty pissed. I just knew “they” were gonna fuck it up, but now, after seeing the trailer I’m starting to think it may be worth watching after all. If for no other reason than glorious Sammy L.

Pusher

I feel a little conflicted. While the original Pusher trilogy was, in my humble opinion, absolutely perfect, I’ll have to admit this remake has me interested.

I will miss Mads Mikkelsen though, his Tonny was heartrendingly hopeless.

Escape form New York….. again

Gerard Butler as Snake Plissken?

“Butler will play Snake, the one-eyed convict who must rescue the President of the United States from an inescapable maximum security prison formerly known as Manhattan.”

I loved this movie when i was a kid. Here’s hoping they don’t muck it up.

Gods No!!

According to the story on Variety:
“New Italian production outfit First Sun has acquired the rights to remake Dario Argento’s classic 1977 horror movie “Suspiria” as an English-language film.”

I guess it might not be so bad if the folks involved were just a bunch of fanboys and wanted to remake Suspiria out of love.

A bad idea in my opinion, but what the hell do I know? *shrugs*

After reading the next bit of the article it seems to me First Sun is only interested in pimping the movie for all its worth.

” ‘Suspiria’ has a unique style that we want to reinvent for today’s generation.” “We intend to create a concept that will encompass cinema, videogames, fashion and music and that revives the original for those who did not experience it. The Gothic resurgence is very strong around the world at the moment … and we feel that a new version of ‘Suspiria’ will fit very well.”

Now I’m sad.
