Not to be too harsh, but it really staggers me that people are surprised about remakes. Hollywood has been remaking itself since it began. There have been countless remakes over time - some are good, some are adequate, some are awful, but Hollywood is in the business of making money and if there's a dime of profit to be reached then they will go ahead with it. Now some on the list I don't want to see myself (The Birds, Escape from New York, TRON and others, some I actually do want to see - Westworld, Logan's Run, and if The Thing is being worked on by Moore I will give it the benefit of the doubt, some I don't care either way) but I have a love for The Last Starfighter, so if a dire remake gets the original finally released on Region 2 to cash in, then bring it on!!

It wouldn't be so bad if most of the remakes didn't suck!

[quote=Summer Storm Pictures;85273]We'll all know the remake thing has gone too far when they announce "Birth of a Nation II."

Hope that's not in bad taste. quote]

Even if it is poor taste, it made me laugh out loud.

What would be REALLY poor taste is "Triumph of the Will Pt. 2 - The Reich Strikes Back." Yep, that's pretty tasteless. Don't flame me!

I thought we had a non-verbal agreement to not mention Trek...

Besides, every Trek movie is different, NOT a remake of TMP (thank the gods).

"Triumph of Will - Espisode II - The Reich Strikes Back"

Hell, that was a good one. You have the approval of a german for that joke. But please ask a Jew for his approval to be absolutely safe.
