and substitute my own!
Ironically enough, all things considered, guess what else they're planning to remake
What's ironicall about mythbusters (I never watched it, so maybe that's why I don't get it)?
EDIT: Ok, having googled it I see it was also used on that program. But actually it's a quote from a crappy 1984 movie The Dungeonmaster
. Doesn't look like anyone's remaking this one...
Oh, and they're remaking the Witchfinder General too (I wonder if anyone else here even knows that one), because if there is one thing the world need is to see Vincent Price roles recast.
Incidentally, did you know that Witchfinder General was retitled "The Conqueror Worm" in the U.S. in order to form some vague attachment to Edgar Allan Poe?
Actually it was called that in Poland too (well, the translation of that).
on a positive note, here are some remakes that I have liked:
Well, I don't detest all remakes or reboots or whatever. I especially don't usually have problems with multiple adaptations of the same source. I love the new "Lion in Winter" with Patrick Stewart and Glenn Close. I love Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet, but it does not prevent me from enjoying Zefirelli's version too. But there is a big difference between remakes (or "re-adaptations") done by such talented casts and directors, and something like Time After Time, where they replaced a superb cast with sexy, bland nobodys.
It's something I hate in general about todays american TV series- it always feels like they cast the same five people. I knwo it's different actors, but they all look the same to me, because they are all the same type of "young and atractive". They don't even look like actors, they look like models from a shampoo commercial.
