Much easier than trying to come up with something original.
Can't wait for remakes of Taxi Driver, Chinatown, Deer Hunter, Sophie's Choice, It's a Wonderful World, Apocalypse Now and To Kill a Mokingbird!
Give it time, give it time.
"Once this was all Black Plasma and Imagination" -Michael McClure
or, at least that's what I think.
When he wanted to record the Rachmaninov's 2nd concert he was asked similar question: there are already almost 200 recordings.
My problem is not the remakes per se, it is their quality.
In some cases it is higher, than the original's.
When are they going to make a 'modern' Anna Karenina, Jane Eyre, Rebecca ,Miss Marple et al.
Just watched it again after 25 years - and this time, I am more sympathetic to the Captain Bligh than Fletcher. Hopkins performance was masterful!
his Poirot is awful though...
...guess they wanted to give all those high powered Hollywood stars something to do.
Reviews have been brutal - "Trainwreck!"
