We went out once in high school. A couple of years back I got in touch with her
and she didn't remember me (one date, no surprise, but still :-().
The nice outcome has been occasional correspondence, holiday cards, questions
about class reunions, etc. She has more class than most of the big "stars" and
is still a beautiful woman.
ahhh...me buds and I were wee lads in grade school at the time.
Remember the episode that rips off Nosferatu with the space vampire?She was
possesed and her voice got so low and sexy.I remember us giggling in the halls
Matter of fact that Psycho remake was on last night. Vince Vaughn is Norman
I couldn't believe they remade Hitchcocks Psycho. I gave it a viewing once
and was totally astounded that it was an exact copy of the original except
shot of course in color.
I liked the remake of the original Night of the living Dead which I believe
was made in 1990.
One that comes to mind for me is "12 Angry Men". I was quite impressed with the
original, something very dramatic about the black and white. I thought the
remake would be the typical overacted schmutz, but it turned out to be as good
as the original, IMHO.

certainly vastly superior than any possible "reimagining" of
a remake would make the guards acpm counsleors trying to

I agree. What's the point in a "remake" that's identical to the
original? This is 2004 - a remake is aimed at a completely different
audience, who have grown up with a different background and have
different expectations of the film. The film maker must provide what
the audience wants and expects if he/she wishes to make a buck or two.
Back in 1965, the audience wanted the "human element" -
soul-searching, love scenes, emotional conflicts, etc. The audience of
2004 isn't interested in these - they want action, special effects and
The audience of 2004 want a movie that will entertain them for the
duration of their trip to the cinema, not some deep and meaningful
subliminal message that they'll go home be thinking about for the next
I haven't seen the remake of Phoenix yet, so perhaps I'm not qualified
to comment. But I reckon it's pretty narrow-minded to bag a new film
just because it's not like the original that was produced 40 years
Enjoy the entertainment value for what it is... and if you don't think
you'll enjoy it, then don't go. Your choice.
Just my 2 cent's worth...
some valid points, but if it is supposed to be a movie based
on the original novel, it fails. and yes, today's movies are
dumbed down to sell tickets. meaningfull and intelligent
have short value today.
i was amazed that life is beautiful managed to break out.
While some folks see this as a personal affront to their weak self image. They
can't see that times and people have changed, that the film is simply
reflecting what things are like today, or at least Hollywood's version. :-)
The good old days of mostly white, manly heroes with weak defensless damsels
served by those quaint colored folks were not very good, they just looked that
way on film.
Bottom line is whether the film is good or not. Personally I'll be there to see
Phoenix and The Aviator as well. At the end of the move I'll know if I liked it
In the brief clips I've seen of 'The Aviator,' the one thing I noticed
is that they got the aircraft right. I'm especially impressed by what I
saw of the XF-11 prototype that Hughes crashed. Since they seem to have
spent the $$$ on getting that right, there's a good chance they got a
lot more right as well. Even with Leonardo in the cast, I'll go see it.
