I really hate remakes.   But I have one that I really liked and I feel like I'm the only one.

I really liked Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes movie.    And Tim Roth freakin OWNED that bad guy roll (name slips my mind at the moment...it's late, I'm too tired to look, and it's been a few years since I last watched it).     It's totally apples and oranges to the original, and the new series is better....but as its own entity I thought it was pretty awesome.     (and Helena Bonham Carter is so hot, she even looked good as an ape. lol )

If nothing else, the Tim Burton Planet of the Apes movie gets a huge pass from me for the sole fact that the apes aren't CGI but actual people in costumes. And REALLY well designed costumes at that.

The makeup effects are the only positive I can find with that movie. The fact the other humans could talk made no sense to the premise, and the ending was so predictable.
Thank god they got it right with the new ones. That's a reboot/remake done right, that respected the franchise by doing its own thing.

I've never had a problem with the idea of remakes or reboots since we still have the originals, and even making 2 remakes doesn't remove the quality of the original. With that said, few remakes actually turn out good though. One remake that I like that I can think of is Zack Snyder's Dawn of the Dead. A really good movie.

I thought that the movie version of Red Dragon was better than Manhunter.  It had a much deeper cast (Norton, Hopkins, P.S. Hoffman, Keitel, Fiennes, etc., compared to Peterson, Cox, no-name, Farina, and no-name) and an ending closer to the novel's.  Yet for some reason, critics love Manhunter and give Red Dragon middling reviews.

That's because Manhunter was better than Red Dragon.

Ronda Rousey to be cast in reboot/remake of Road House.

Wonder if they'll keep the line, "I thought you'd be bigger".

probably the actual only reason she's being used.....is for that line. And I guess cuz she's hot and popular right now.

I'm not sure that's a movie that needs a remake.

But at least she's a legitimate badass.

Well, there WAS a King Kong vs. Godzilla film in the 60s, but I sincerely doubt this rumored new one will be a remake of that one.  Because it completely sucked.

The idea of it was much better than the film itself.

Also, if they go with the current US film incarnation of Godzilla, they will have to give Kong some serious steroids, or it will be closer to this classic.

I had to bring this to the intrawebz.

I saw the trailer for Point Break, and thought, "Who's playing P Swayz? What's next, remake Road House?" If they remade Road House, should the same guy get the role? With all the remakes and reboots, multiple movies from the same actor/actress are inevitable. Should the same person just take over?

I can see it. There are two movie versions of Scarface. The original was made in 1932 starring Paul Muni, and then the 1983 remake with Al Pacino.

Rounda Rousey is starring in the Roadhouse remake.

And to answer your question, no.

So that new National Lampoon's Vacation movie with Ed Helms.

I heard that IN THE MOVIE ITSELF they reference the original movie AS A MOVIE ??? And Chevy Chase IS IN THIS NEW ONE AS CLARK GRISWOLD !!

I bet whoever wrote that thought they were being really " Meta " and clever. . .

i don't remember them referencing it as a movie, they just referenced the events of the first film as the 'original vacation', so it was basically them talking about why this is different than the original movie without outright saying it

I seem to remember Robin Williams had been dead like 5 minutes before they announced a Jumanji remake.

Apparently it's not a remake. It's actually being called a sequel.

Indeed. I'm guessing we'll see more about what's going on as the script and production develops.

I saw the original in the movie theater when it first came out.

You should see the first one. Maybe the 2nd one if you really want to see more about the Predator society. You can ignore everything else.

First Predator is a classic! Would definitely be up there among the best action films ever, in my top 5 at least. (The only 3 I could think of that I would rate higher would be Terminator 2, Die Hard & The Matrix) The second one is alright but not as good as the first obviously. Substituting Arnold for Danny Glover feels a bit eh, it has some redeemable qualities, but overall the biggest strength of the original, the isolation, fear of the unknown is completely gone, and by setting the sequel in the middle of a big city, you kinda lose that. The AvP films were not good, and I didn't really care much for the Predators reboot/sequel with Brody.

Really hyped for the sequel since Shane Black is attached to direct it.

Predator is one of those movies I've always really wanted to watch but for some reason never have. I should do it right now for you, DTF.



I'm still probably never watching an Alien movie though.

You should definitely watch Predator. It's great in that 80's action movie way. Plus Arnold.

Also, the first two Alien movies are actually quite good.
