I got myself 8MM, Sabu's "Drive", Blade II and Frankenhooker on DVD today. Which one should I watch first?

Well, Frankenhooker is by far the best of those movies, though I have a soft spot for 8MM. So, go that route.

You won't be disappointed. Most documentaries tell you a story; this one places you in the middle of one, and let's you figure out the rest on your own.

Yesterday, demonrail and I saw:


 


Pretty unimpressive fare all round - tried to recreate the "vibe" of the 70's, but it failed on many levels, and the blatant quoting of other film references was pretty lame also. Poor script adaptation, lame acting, "horror" scenes telegraphed way in advanced, a seventies lead dude with a sculpted and buff noughties torso....


 


Not bad really - essentially a different retelling of the old "1984" thing - Julie Christie proves again that she's really not that great an actress, and certain scenes were reminiscent of an episode of "Trumpton".....saved by an ending which, if expanded upon, would have made for a far more engaging film.

Yeah, I didn't dislike the Amityville remake. It just seemed a bit unnecessary them insisting it remained in the 70s. (I mean everyone by now knows the 'true story' schtick is a load of bollocks.) Setting it thirty years in the past allows for the usual references to pot smoking and Kiss posters but, as Melly says, the actual cast looked to contemporary. It would've worked just as well had they set it in the current era. As it is it looks like a bunch of gym addicts attending a fancy dress party. Everyone looked to well groomed. And if there's one thing people weren't in the 70s, it's well groomed.

the original amityville was so good that i see no reason to have a remake of it.
and yeah, F451 is a great story but not a great movie. i had to write a report about it last year that dealt with enstrangment which made it interesting. but i really dont like troffaut as a director. he makes good movies but i really dont like his way of directing, its very boring IMO



oh and i just saw the original The Blob. it was excellent. classic 50s horror

you can rightly say that there's "no reason" to remake any movie. Let's all just admit, that remakes are basically made to make $ without thinking up a new idea. Now that we've all accepted that, let's just view each film as its on film (the Pixies "Wild Honey Pie" is a different song than The Beatles'). Most remakes will fail when attempting to outdo an original, but if no one tried then we wouldn't have John Carpenter's The Thing for instance.

Carpenter's The Thing is a perfect justification for remakes.
