    Assault on Precinct 13 Remake

    There is no way they'll be able to replicate the mood and tension of this picture. Even Carpenter himself can't do it anymore ...

    I'm not sure those all qualify: Phantom of the Paradise Dirty Harry McCabe & Mrs. Miller Chinatown (too big?) edit: Steve reminded me of Altman, switched Shaft to McCabe & Mrs. Miller, one of my fave from that period

    Directors Name that Movie (or TV Show)

    Ouch, good one with L'Atalante, I watched it recently and still missed it. I remember the shot now, but it's so not related to the plot, a real tricky shot :D

    Hanks 'set for Ladykillers remake'

    Looks ok, might be refreshing to see Tom Hanks come back to his roots. I used to like his comedies in the 80s. I also noticed that now Ethan Coen is also listed as director, I think it's the frist time they are both listed ..

    Directors what would you watch at my house?

    Before I come, can I ask if you have a daughter ? Or how old is you wife :D Seriously, I'd probably pick Lifeboat too, since it's a Hitch I haven't seen.

    Halloween I & II

    I'm not sure about part II, but you got it right concerning Halloween. The 25th anniversary edition is sharper but it loses the blue tint at night and some yellow/orange tints during the day scenes, so the grass looks more green. There is no definitive answer, some people prefer the Anchor Bay...

    Why do we like horror movies?

    A few reasons. It's probably mainly for the same reasons we like rollercoaster rides. Like others have said, for the adrenaline rush, we just like being scared. Now, for the most part horror movies are not that scary once you have seen a lot, but I still enjoy them. Mainly because they are...

    What happened at the Staddon chat?

    I missed the chat, but glad someone asked about The Innocents. Hard to believe he wasn't familiar with it, but I'll add my voice in case someone from Fox notices all the mentions of this movie in this thread.
