Watching the Final Four and I just saw a trailer for a new version of Nightmare On Elm Street.

Puh-leeeze! Doesn't anyone in Hollywood have an original idea anymore? No wonder I run to Asian cinema.

The worst part? It's a Michael Bay film.

its simple - remakes are safer films to make because there is a built in audience. I am with you though - enough with the remakes!

I understand the logic behind making remakes but that doesn't mean I like it. Geez, why aren't they remaking Hostel? Hell, it's over 5 years old...

Sometimes I actually like the remake moreso than the original. Not always.

But many remakes are some of my favorite movies:

Freaky Friday (way better than the original)
Parent Trap (way better)
Gone in 60 Seconds


etc.

Even they're not safe. For a while Hollywood was "remaking" Asian movies by the buttload. (i.e. "The Ring," "the Grudge," "Dark Water," etc.) Though thankfully the trend seems to have died off in recent years...

I am looking forward to the new Clash of the Titans. Having just watched the original the other day, with all its charms, I'm very curious to see the big budget version.

Hell, remake them all! Remake everything under the sun for all I care. Remake Gone With the Wind. Remake The Godfather. Remake Plan 9 From Outer Space.

A remake of the remake of The Thing is the most dreaded thing they're doing now.

I read that it might be a prequal. I would kind of want to see that.

I don't know that could go either way.


Let's remember "The Fog" was actually better than the original.

ME TOO DUDE!!! The Thing RULES!!!





Now THAT'S the kind of horror I like now!!! Right there. The gore is limited, and only a realistic by-product. Not the focus of the entire movie!!!

See, I actually like gore.

But only when it's done right.

I don't mind remakes, they usually decent films. Films like Gone In 60 Seconds aren't bad.

Well, the first two are classics. Maybe #3 will be, too?

Never cared for Nightmare on Elm Street so it doesn't bother me if the remake it or not.
Not a fan of those type of movies!

NOOO!!!!!

Honestly, I think Nightmare on Elm Street isn't all that great anyway, but with Michael Bay directing it it'll probably be even worse. Transformers 2 is by far one of the worst pieces of shite I have ever seen. It should be a criminal offense to makes movies that are that terrible.
