    The trailer I saw says: yes.

    Actually, based on the trailer it looks like a shot-for-shot remake with more advanced CGI in which case, why bother? I'd rather somebody interesting (Nolan?) take a shot at "Clans of the Alphane Moon," which would make one helluva weird movie.

      Watched 2 over the weekend, that I probably should have seen before, but hadn't.

      First was Vertigo, which I thought was just OK. I know its considered one of the best ever, but I just never got into it. I find this is the case with most older movies, I just don't connect with them. Its not because I need a movie with flashy special effects and explosions, because I like newer movies that are slow-paced and not flashy, so I'm not sure what it is, they're just not for me.

      Second, is a movie that I have seen parts of at several different times, and then several years ago made a point to avoid until I can see the whole thing from start to finish. I finally decided that I needed to just get it on Netflix, because it would be the only way to watch it start to finish. Goodfellas...yeah, I should have seen this long ago, but whatever. The movie was very good, but not as good as I expected. I think this is a classic case of hearing how great the movie was for years, and it built my expectations up too high. Overall, I liked it, but just not as good as I expected.
      Having a clear conscience just means you have a bad memory or you had a boring weekend.

          You could have just borrowed Goodfellas from me. What makes that movie really good (for me) besides the obvious is that it's really really really true. There's little deviance from the actual events.

            Will there be 3-breasted alien women again? Inquiring minds want to know!
            Confirmed!

            The pic in the article isn't good. But it gives all the important information to search for better ones.


            The wife got "The Decendants" over the weekend. She totally mislead me on that movie. No idea I was walking into a tear jerking movie like that. Plus it was totally predictable as the plot unfolded. Totally feel cheated but I guess it's payback for her watching "Project X". Need to find a good movie next time since IMHO both were "meh."

              Odd that she's upset about the photo on the internet. What did she think was going to happen? Plus she's clothed.

              Here's a better one.

                  While Total Recall is unecessary, this one actually ****es me off.

                    I didn't know people considered Starship Troopers a masterpiece. I thought it was crap.

                        At his graduation ceremony from the U of Minnesota, my cousin got a keychain. When asked what UW gave her for graduation, my sister said, "A degree from a University that matters."

                          This. Denise Richards' terrible performance is almost mind-blowing.

                            EXACTLY!! It is like remaking Roger Corman movies unless you are dialing up the campy ridiculousness to 11 (Little Shop of Horrors) you just stay away!

                            For the love of GOD the scene where Dizzy dies is so terrible it is Oscar Worthy in crappiness!
