Hollywood's never-ending thirst for reboots continues with this offering.



Altogether now... meh!

That's what really irritates me about Hollywood in the last several years.... they can't leave old classics alone. Heck, they can't even leave TV shows alone (Addams Family). It's almost as if they can't come up with original ideas, so they go a ruin a classic movie.

I refuse to go see or even rent remakes unless it's a stellar piece of work. The Titanic didn't even count for me because it was based on a true event.

Btw, I own the Planet of the Apes box set with all the originals.

Its crazy isn't it. Superman and Spiderman are getting reboots despite that the last films in each franchise was released about 3 years ago.

I make an exception for Batman because it was a long time between Burton's creation and Nolan's. Besides, Nolan's films have been pretty close to flawless.

Yeah, it drives me crazy. I will take exception to the movie, The Thing. That was awesome and made back in '81 or '82 when I was in the service. From what I've read, it didn't really follow the original 1950's movie.

But I saw this in that piece..

The Thing serves as a prelude to John Carpenter's classic 1982 film of the same name.

So, it shows what happened before the 1982 movie began. It might be pretty good. Yay

Oh yeah, I knew it was a prequel set in the Norwegian station. I'm quite looking forward to seeing it.

I've seen them both, love the 1980s version. I've also read the novelette that the film was based on.

The 1982 film version was much closer to the novelette than the 1950s version.

I never saw the 50's version. Black and White TV gives me a headache. Big Grin I finally bought the 82 version on DVD last year. It's a true classic.
