    1) Oh God no…..! Not BARBARELLA!
    2) Worf, what are you doing on a site with the word “geek” in it?
    3) I don’t care how many bad movies they make, just as long as they make a few good ones.
    4) I have been waiting for HEAVY METAL II for decades. 3D huh?
    5) POLICE ACADEMY? What are we up to now? 12?
    6) THE SHADOW? Cool. Who knows what lurks in the hearts and minds of men? THE SHADOW do…
    7) TEEN WOLF? Micheal J. Fox might have trouble coming back for this.

    No surprise...

    There were probably 75 just in this past year...sure, they may not have been "called" a sequel or remake, but essentially they copied all their ideas from somewhere. I love how 2 scripts of similar movies always seem to land right around the same exact time....

    THE PRESTIGE vs. THE ILLUSIONIST

    THE MATRIX vs. BLADE (yes, if you actually think about it these two movies have more in common than meets the eye)

    DEEP IMPACT vs. ARMAGEDDON

    ANTZ vs. BUGS LIFE

    TRUMAN SHOW vs. EDTV

    MISSION TO MARS vs. RED PLANET

    TOMBSTONE vs. WYATT EARP

    DEEP STAR SIX vs. THE ABYSS

    VICE VERSA vs. LIKE FATHER LIKE SON

    and the list goes on....

    Chances are....

    Just about every movie currently being made, was in one shape, way or form already made by one of the following men:

    Akira Kurosawa
    Alfred Hitchcock
    Billy Wilder
    Charlie Chaplin
    John Ford
    or Stanley Kubrick

    Can't wait for the Alien prequels... I really hope Ridley Scott directs them.

    For a few of those, and quite a few others not listed, you can attribute those to Dreamworks' (aka Katzenburg's) war with Disney. Just take a gander from when Dreamworks started and their first several YEARS of releases, coinciding with what the Disney family was putting out. Coincidence?

    And they say Katzenburg was happy with the severance Disney gave him...

    Footloose? FOOTLOOSE? That one hurts. I love the original! It's so silly and fun. They'll probably cast some little Vampire wannabe or HS Musical twerp in Kevin Bacon's role. I may have to make sure that my nieces see the original before they have the chance to be tainted by this sacreligious remake.

    Dan Akroyd's been talking about a Ghostbuster remake for years, so that's no surprise.

    A new Heavy Metal movie could be very cool if done right. Given that the original was in 1981 and would have likely been all hand-drawn animation, it would be very interesting to see just to compare animation technique. Not to mention the potential for a killer soundtrack!

    But the one that truly makes me scratch my head in wonder is Yellow Submarine? How on earth can you remake a Beatles movie and expect success? That has to be stupidity at it's finest.

    Edit: I was just looking at Heavy Metal on IMDB. I never realized that many of the voices were SCTV cast.

    When do we get to see Heavy Metal meets the Sound of Music?

    Hopefully he doesn't have to make change for the meter at the studio.


    What a horrific list ranging from films that cannot possibly be bettered to films that should have never been made. How are you gonna make The Crow or Highlander or Escape from New York better. All owe their rather cult-like status to the "doing-more-with-less" ethos.

    Do we really need another rendition of Cliffhanger? Seriously?
    So, I broke into the palace

    She said : "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
    I said : "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"

    at least the bar is low

    everyone panned Clash Of The Titans last year, as if the original wasn't an embarissment for everyone involved.

    some sequels are long overdue, like Heavy Metal II and Tron. They could be fun. I have fond memories of movies like Tron and Black Hole (even if the latter was a snooze, it was visually stunning for its time) because they were reasons to take families to the movies beyond the usual glorified TV cartoons and dog/cat shows that passed for family fare (and still do). They were a leap forward for Disney Co. For better or worse, spectacle is still the best reason for "seeing it on the big screen".
