Say it isn’t so!

Okay, I can feel a small rant coming….enough already with the remakes. Why can’t Hollywood re-release classic movies so that other generations can appreciate them instead of hashing out sub-standard replicates?

Cinescape is reporting that a producer of The Fast and the Furious will produce a new version of To Catch a Thief and move the location from the French Riviera to Miami. How can you meddle with Hitchcock, Cary Grant and Grace Kelly – what are they going to give us McG, Van Petrol and JLo – or in a worse case scenario Paul Walker….

    Also coming remake of Flight of the Phoenix – remember – big plane full of tortured yet resourceful men in khaki – fly model plane whole nine yards to freedom????

    Isn’t that strange, we were just talking about Flight of the Phoenix (having watched a documentary about Leonardo da Vinci). I really agree with you about remakes – it’s pointless and nearly always ends up with a vastly inferior version but as always, money and egos rule so I guess we have to learn to live with them.

    Oh, just hearing the words “Paul Walker” bring tears of sorrow to my eyes.

    It’s not even like he’s that cute anymore, either. Just no pros at all — all cons!
