Willow would be great to.


Heresy. You can't remake Willow.

I don't care if they bring trolls to life or use CGI from 200 years in the future. No way you are going to improve on that movie or even come close to the original.

Some things should be left alone.

Although I'd like to see it remastered in the theatres again. (The Original)

Who crapped in you guys corn flakes? Cripes, we're discussing remakes. Don't like it? There are other threads. Jeez.


To those discussing this, I know that Jaws is awesome. I didn't think that True Grit would be better than the original but it was. I'd like to see what they could do.

Remake of "Jaws"?......
This thought comes to mind,

M. Bison voice: Yes! YES! I loved that movie too...mrweebl on youtube made an excellent cartoon based on the film to support savinh the badgers i England (Brian Blessed's in there too)

I'm actually writing a treatment for a semi-remake of Man of La Mancha with some Mel Brooks humour.

If any film-inclined posters want to proofread the script, just pm me if interested.

SOYLENT GREEN



This needs to be done.

Wow, what a contribution. Do you have a film that you would like remade?

IDK if they could remake SG. It was a 70's look at our generation and it wasn't too far off the mark. If they did I see Gerard Butler in Heston's roll.

As I said before, I don't like remakes. There is nothing that I can think of that I would like a remake of. They generally trade quality and style, for action and special effects.

I just thought of one remake I did love. The Three Musketeers with Michael York.

BTW I don't eat cornflakes. Monsanto crapped in them!

Quint? Gotta go with Jeff Bridges again. He plays crusty well. Hooper? Johnny Depp. Nuff said. Brody? I don't know why but I see Vince Vaughn in this roll.


Intrepid,
I must disagree! This scene was one of cinema's finest. Pure magic. Bridges, Depp and Vaughn in their finest form could not even hope to pull this off. Not in a million years.
Bridges is a great actor. Depp is good, but way overrated. Vince Vaughn as Brody??

Enough with the remakes already

I have to agree with you. They need to stop reinventing the wheel. A classic is a classic. Hollywood needs to start using their own creativity and imagination instead of relying on re-makes. We can probably say that about music too.

Sometimes though they can re imagine a movie and make it better.
Dawn of the dead remake (2004) was one of the best remakes I have ever seen.
I think that the older we get we look back on certain films with a lot of emotion (remembered seeing it when it came out etc) but as the younger generation grows up they may view that film as old and so producers try to up date the same story for a newer generation.

I'm not real sure why, but a couple days ago, I was thinking about a new 'Gilligan's Island' with the cast of 'Grown Ups'.




I don't know about the women, but maybe....

Rob Schneider = Gilligan
Kevin James = The Skipper
Adam Sandler = Thurston Howell III
David Spade = Professor

Then there were also a few different recurring characters.
Chris Rock would probably be good as the little Japanese guy with thick glasses.
Steve Buscemi might make a good Jungle Boy.

You can't remake Jaws. It's near perfect, imo. If Spielberg had his way the first time, the movie would have been crap and we wouldn't be having this conversation. The issues with Bruce, the mechanical shark, forced him to shoot the movie in a different way, which made it that much more terrifying. It was the first summer blockbuster and is a league of it's own....

Have you seen 'The Shark is Still Working: The Impact and Legacy of Jaws'?

[color=8AC6DB]After three decades, Jaws continues to intrigue, thrill and frighten viewers. This documentary focuses on the many ways Jaws has helped to shape common elements of pop culture.

They also talk quite a bit about the various problems they had while making the movie. Before watching that documentary, I knew nothing about this, but apparently "The shark is not working" had become quite a common phrase.

It's interesting, and worth watching.

They recently announced a reboot of the Terminator trilogy. That'll be interesting I think.

As for one I'd like to see remade: The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. (Timothy Olyphant, Daniel Craig, Luis Guzman)

Brewster's Millions (remake of a remake)

People love to watch someone throw money away.

I think it could do well.

Be careful what you ask for....I'm sure we can all give examples of movies that were remade than were all big let downs.the main one for me is growing up I LOVED Then Land of the Lost. I had already bought bootlegs DVDs of the series and and VHS offered by the official manufacturer. Years later I heard it was coming out and I was stoked, then finally when it was released.....well I was really let down. Sometimes it's better to keep the fond memories and leave well enough alone.
