And Now For Something Completely Differ.....Er...Um...I Mean, Exactly The Same


I really am at a loss for words at how Hollywood is remaking film after film. It gives me that hopeless feeling, like in my nightmares when I know I'm dying, and I'm resigned to that fact. That's how totally helpless I feel. I try and write fairly original stuff. I put my own unique outlook on everything I write. I play with conventions. I stay away from cliches. And this is what I have to deal with?

Rififi remake

For those that don't know, Rififi is a classic french film noir. One of the top 10, I would say. And lets hear it for Hollywood, they decide to remake yet another great movie, instead of maybe making an original. I'm so disgusted, even with Pacino starring.

all we can hope for I think is that our spec gets us a foot in the door and noticed, but the unfortunate reality is it will undoubtedly garner us one of these dreadful remake assignments

At least it has Pacino and not Affleck, although Pacino is inching close to becoming a caricature of himself, needs to tone it down some...

my feelings exactly for DeNiro, he needs to get back at it, I hope The Good Shepherd will be signs of good things to come

The Good Shepherd, haven't caught wind of that one. On my way to check it out. Thanks Moviequill.

I'm interested in that as well. Especially with Deniro directing.
