some things should just be left alone,
they are remaking spiderman and it's only been 10 years. christ they remade the hulk and that was only like 4 years.
and the punisher has been remade 3 times.
they are remaking conan too.
i will probably rent total recall and conan just to watch them fall flat on their face. both the originals of those are classics and DO NOT need to be remade!!!
Hmmm, former music video director and prodigy of the 'lets keep it flashy yet shallow to broaden the audience' remaking a Paul 'pile on the gore' Verhoeven movie.
Yeah, he might manage to make it more similar to the original story, but will it be as awesome as the original movie? Think not.
I wouldn't really consider these remakes, in the case of The Incredible Hulk that was a sequel to the first but with a different cast, and unless they are going to do Spidermans origin in the new film I would say the same applies to this, the same way that Batman Forever is not a remake of Batman.
I would be cool with this if they took the general idea and made a drastically different story with it, but not if it is just the same thing with new actors and new technology. Also, I'm not happy that is at the helm of somebody best known for Underworld movies.
Greg Oden: The future of the Blazers. The future of the NBA.
Correct, i did hear a rumour that Colling Farrell maybe be up for the role of Douglas Quaid.
God help us.
Why are they screwing with these movies that are classic?
Some yes, need a reboot like HULK and Superman returns (with this one just reboot it with an origin story and fight doomsday) even though i loved superman 1 and 2 (donner cut) they are quite dated now and need to be rebooted.
I really don't care whether they remake this movie or not. I love the original one because it was fun and had some cool ideas amid a lot of silly moments. Having this movie being remade and existing alongside the original movie will not destroy the movie imo. It is really silly to think so. On a side note, where the hell is Paul Verhoeven? He has not made a genre movie in ages.
Let's hope he was shuttled off to MARS.. permanently! Hahaha.. However, terrible though it is, I actually find Starship Troopers fairly entertaining. *shrug*
It's only a shame that this is being remade in that it's probably impossible for it to be as silly and off-the-wall funny as the original! My favorite line from the original: "Be back in time for Corn Flakes."
