Besides, Frank Sinatra is pretty terrible actor-wise.

True; but it's one of the few times you'll ever get to see him in a hollywood production. And you're right about the Plot and the fact that you don't have to "revel" in the greatness of the actors... I was just saying that it is kinda refreshing to get to see a decent music artist in a movie.... which doesn't happen entirely too often.... too many hop-hip artists and "rappers"......

It's Weird Al, not Wierd Al.   tongue

As for forgetting Mr. Yankovic when I made that list, what can I say?  Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.

If a remake's better, it's worth making. If it isn't, it isn't.

Yea well the people making Burton's "Planet of the Apes" thought it WAS a better movie.

They were wrong. (I hope Big Fish is as good as it looks.)

Oh and it's Weird "Al" Yankovic

That does look good.  I might go see that.  I'm still not gonna watch his remake of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, though.

What did everyone think of "The Italian Job?" It was a movie in the 1960's.... then... a PS1 game.... then.... came... Edward Norton... not bad I thought.. kinda a feel good B+ popcorn film. Well worth at least a rental for us action crack fans.

I really does depend on the movie.  Texas Chainsaw was a good remake, even though I haven't seen the old verison in years.  Dawn of Dead is coming out with a remake this year, hope it is just as good as the old verison.  Planet of the Apes remake, was okay, but it could have been better.
