it begins.  Slasher movie remakes are coming

Friday the 13th

As far as trailers to slasher movies go, they are pretty decent.  However it remains to be said whether or not they'll be good.

While I oppose horror movie remakes, I'm looking at you Rob Zombie you homewrecker, there are some that I've actually found decent. By some I just mean one, The Omen. Then again I have not seen all of the original Gregory Peck one but from what I hear its the same movie shot for shot. (If that's the case, what is the point of remaking a movie if you're just gonna copy every part of it?)

Anyway! The Friday the 13th remake actually looks entertaining. The reason I like the series (same goes for Nightmare on Elm Street) is the cheesy 80's entertainment value from it. Now this will either be really good and scary or just bleh. I mean when Jason runs up to slash that girl with the machette, that looked intense. Jason isn't the running type, so hopefully the update will be worth it. I'm dragging my boyfriend to see it anyway.

Well, considering my childhood was in the nineties, factoring in reruns and the fact that I mostly watched cartoons and sitcoms (some of them still shockingly entertaining to watch years later...Particularly the adult sitcoms.  For all their faults, my parents are kind of awesome that way)...

I think I'm mostly out of the realm of bad remakes, unless some insane psychopath decides to make a live-action Animaniacs movie or re-imagines Frasier or Seinfeld.  No comment on the Simpsons, and really I would like to forget my early introduction to the mild terror that is Rosie O'Donnell.  Curse you, relatives!  CURSE YOU.  *inner child cries*

As for horror movie remakes:  Well, I've never been a fan of horror.  I have trouble watching them because my first response to anything terrifying is usually to crack a joke about it and laugh and while that's really an awesome survival technique it's not great with sitting through horror films.  At any rate, if there's nothing you could really add to a remake of anything...Why do them?  Oh, right, right.  Money.  Momentarily forgot that was important...Gotta eat and all that.  Carry on.

My childhood was woefully unprotected---some of my most vivid childhood television memories were of kneeling in my pajamas outside my parents' bedroom, watching endless episodes of Seinfeld through a crack in the door. Beautiful, beautiful memories, even though it is rather screwed up that the music I associate with being a little kid is not lullabies, but loud slap bass. big grin In any case, my childhood memories are in the vault, no one can tamper with them, no matter how hard they try. Even a live-action Simpsons attempt would bounce off me. Thank god for my parents.

BTW, Horror movie remakes are not just a lousy trend, they're an epidemic, and they're becoming blatantly disrespectful of the classics at an alarming pace. I wouldn't be surprised to see a Silence of the Lambs remake sometime in the next 10 years

Yay, I love nostalgia!

This is the thread for me!  big grin

I get most of my nostalgia by watching the Pokemon anime.  *is the biggest Pokemon fan ever*  I've got all sorts of Pokemon collectibles, including plushies, DVDs, games, cards, and other Pokemon related merchandise I've collected throughout the years.

Ah, I love the 3rd Pokemon movie.  <333

Ironically, Red Dragon 2002 was a remake to Manhunter from 1986.

I just learned the teaser trailer to the Transformer sequel is coming in Feb.  Can't wait.

Also Rob Zombie has comfirmed about the sequel to Halloween.

Jason wasn't actually the killer in the original Friday the 13th.  Also, the first Nightmare on Elm Street is a good horror movie... it's not a cheesy 80's slash fic like its sequels and other films of the genre.

(From Tv show, the adventures of Lano and Woodley)

Col: What about this movie, it looks really scary.

Video guy: Milo & Otis?

------------

Col: How about Herbie goes bananas? Who's herbie? Is he some kind of psychopath or something?

The jokes in lano and woodley were priceless laff



I watched The Lost Boys last week, it's pretty good I reckon.

The Farrelly Brothers are working on a film featuring the Three Stooges with Jim Carrey perhaps playing Curly.  Sean Penn will play Larry.

Another great 80's film is being remade.  The Karate Kid, or "the Kung Fu Kid" as it's being dubbed.  It will feature Jackie Chan as Mr. Miyagi and Will Smith's son,
Jaden Smith as Daniel San.  I think they'll have different names, but you might as well call them that.  Will Smith is producing this...why?

His son probably saw the orininal Karate Kid and wanted to be him. Several million dollars later.....Kung Fu Kid.

Did not realize that Rorshach was playing Freddy. I now approve of this project.

Also, does anybody remember Going Ape! starring Tony Danza? That was one of the best movies of all time!

Well, once, briefly, in passing, just as he was saying, "Bond. James Bond. Junior." during a channel surf.

Nostalgia: man, I don't know. That episode of Are You Afraid Of The Dark with a terror clown in the basement? It might have been a skeleton.

Saw Elm Street remake, thought it was okay, hated that there were too many jump scares.  Haley as Freddy wasn't bad, though I blame the writer for not using him properly.
