“I want them to remake Gremlins. The first one came out in the 80s and it’s really horribly done since it’s the 80s. So I want a new version. A sweet version with all the cool stuff we have now.”

"Sometimes a Great Notion," from the book by Ken Kesey (his masterpiece, IMO).

They somehow managed to turn a wonderful narrative with fascinating characters, drama, humor, suspense, sex, and adventure into a total POS--and somehow managed to do so despite casting some solid, excellent actors.

The movie is an embarrassment and it was no wonder it bombed. Anyone who saw it first would probably avoid the book, which is a shame. The book is worth reading for the descriptive passages alone, which put you right into the lush, green timber country of Oregon or the dry dusty bleakness of eastern Colorado.

But it has so much more to offer--most notably the complex character studies and spot-on believable family and small-town frictions (and outright furious hatred between some of the leading characters). Movies often don't live up to books, but the failure here was particularly spectacular. I was so very disappointed when I saw it. I've always wished someone with a sure hand and the right sensibilities would give it another go.

They should remake anything with Will Ferrell in it. All his movies sucked because he can't be funny. There was some good ideas there except the part where Will Ferrell was hired.

RET says… "TRA, You missed Texasville?"

Actually, I was going for the shallow joke. (If there were a sequel, then the original would have been the Second to the Last Picture Show.) Now, I'll have to check it out.

/ ... and did RET call me TRA? How RETro.

The Smurfs and make it non stupid this time.

We need more Chevy Chase style Vacation movies.

The Graduate.

Please skip Dirty Dancing....no one wants to see that. No one.

I'd really like to see some of the John Hughes movies updated....but not with a new Brat Pack. We want the same people, just older.

"Avatar, Electric Boogaloo". See? Pretty cool, huh?

Oh boy, Autie's off and running with the railroad spike fetish again. Instead of saying Part II, say Electric Boogaloo. It means the same thing. It all started with the dance movie "Breakin'". The sequel was "Breakin' Part II, Electric Boogaloo".

Dan Cheadle(pejorative) was in every movie for a while. He was supposed to be directing and starring in a biopic about Miles Davis. I heard that about 3 yrs ago so I guess it's not happening. I'd see Gary Sinese in anything. Now that guy has a huge range, and he doesn't even have any legs.

No more remakes, please, leave the classics alone. Sequels, sure, OK, fine. How about Mr. Spacehog goes to Washington.

Either "Major League" or "Rookie of the Year" but use the Royals instead of the Cubs & Indians. The Royals have been down so long now that they deserve to be depicted in a movie.

I wish when they make a 3-D, they would make a regular version to show maybe once or twice a week. The admission fee is higher for 3-D and some people cannot see the 3-D effects due to vision problems. Yeah, I know, it's impractical, that's why it's only a wish.

Good question.

I would like to see them do a sequel to The Last Airbender.

Wait for the movie nerds to bash that one.

I do not really respect movie nerds and their meaningless opinions on issues like music, movies or where to eat, so have at it.

There is one set of remakes that I'd like to see. I wish that somebody would buy the rights to the James Bond novels and remake them as period pieces set in the '50s and '60s and actually follow the plots of the books.

In Cold Blood, and do it by the book. The point of the book isn't the murders, but rather the two killers being on the run, caught and hanged.

They should do "The Unusual Suspects" starring that dog from Frasier as McMannis, Steve Carrell as Hockney, Darth Vader as Keaton, Ozzy Osborne as Fenster, and a lunatic CGI giraffe as Keyser Soze. I'd pay to see that.

That was really Bob Dylan playing Cate Blanchett playing Bob Dylan. He did a mean Galadriel as well.

Now "I'm Not There" was a great film. But it was ABOUT Bob Dylan. Cate Blanchett was fantastic as early period speed-freak Bob. She should have won an Oscar.

"Dune" The original with Kyle McHousewife was marginal at best. Baron Harkonnen was too over the top. The special effects were pretty cheesy as well. Sting was good, though. Ol' Gordon would have kicked Kyle's backside in that last fight scene had the script not dictated otherwise.

HollisBrown 2 years, 8 months ago

It's not a remake, but I guess crafty Al Pacino is starring in a film about Phil Spector. Come on, Phil Spector is probably short, but not THAT short. Hoo-Ah. Interesting subject, but Al has become unwatchable. I didn't even get to watch the Dr. Death movie because I know he ruined it.

I want to see a remake of "Citizen Kane", starring Keanu Reeves. Oh yes. I can just see him lying in the bed, whispering "Rosebud"............It gives me chills. Keanu is a great actor, just like Jude Law. Just ask Sean Penn.

Dear Hollywood, stop remaking movies and doing pointless sequels. Either find some writers with new material or just find another line of work.

Hollis, please forgive me for the mugshot commentary. From what I am looking at there may be a few. I only have one.

4. I will be your re-make of "Lawrence of Arabia." Terms. I will be your "Lawrence of Arabia" if you will be mine all mine my "Lauren of Arabia" and I can be your Knight in Shining Armour. Deal?

Hear me. Feel me. Dance as if no one is watching:

Please excuse the cut/paste re-post but I feel that I should broadcast as best that I am able to in order to save a jar collection which may have been disrupted by an act of nonsense. Originally posted approximately 20 minutes ago.

Please excuse my intrusion as it is late. However, out of curiosity, again, I am wondering why so many people would like to physically fight? I pose this question as I was just, minutes ago, invited to engage in personal and physical combat by one whom wished to acquire a personal possession, my wallet, from me without my consent. I humbly denied.

Then I was told " i will kick your ass you fking psy!!" As I retained my inner clarity and composure I simply replied "Of course, Marquess of Queensberry rules, then." Puzzled, as my then adversary was from these words, I hit once and he fell. And then he ran screaming yelling something about "You broke my f**kin jar man!!" I do not remember seeing a jar. However, I am glad not to have seen or felt one either. If you are reading this, the person whom which I broke your jar, please respond as I do apologize for breaking your jar - some are very collectable - and I would gladly pay full duty at market price to replace.

Here are some of my pictures if you need a reminder or would request a line up to point me out. Good Day.
