    Why they think we need this... I don't know. Its not like the original is bad or anything, I think its a fun little film.

    At least we can hope for a re-release DVD of the original to coincide with it...

    If there's a DVD in need of a reissue it's this one. Non-anamorphic widescreen with no extras whatsoever.

    And in today's PC-society, of course we're not going to get fantastic dialog like...

    "Don't fuck with the Lords of Hell!"
    "DON'T FUCK WITH THE BABYSITTER!"

    Well Disney did release the PG-13 Pirates of the Carribean. I doubt we'll hear f-bombs in the remake.

    Thats the only benefit I can think of at the moment. I mean can the events of the original movie even take place in a world like today?

    I always thought the show was perfect for a television series. Apparently this lasted for a very short while.

    A current one would be fine.

    Matt, you forgot the most golden line of all-time from that movie.

    "Thor's a homo!"

    I can't imagine that line NOT getting by in today's social climate...

    But "Don't F*CK with the babysitter?" I doubt that...

    This takes the cake as the most useless, not to mention needless, remake in history.

    The original was great, one of my favorites from the 80's, but it was only 18 years ago and is still accessable to people now, it's not like it's a vintage film that people forget even exsisted!

    I don't get it, I suppose it's true what i've heard, Hollywood really is running out of ideas.

    My favorite charactor BTW was Anthony Rapp as Darryl Coopersmith, that kid killed me! [​IMG] Still a bit ambiguous about whether or not Dawson was actually Thor, his line to Sara about the helmet "I got one of these at home." always left me wondering. Or maybe he was just being nice.

    Man, I used to watch the hell out of that movie when I was a kid. I agree with John...the original isn't too old and still pretty accessible.

    I loved this movie as well when I was a kid, and strange as it is my grandmother did as well. We used watch it a lot together. My grandmother's favorite part was when the girl was in the bus station and she didn't have her glasses. I think it's stupid to remake it.

    I thought Pet Semetary was in production as well. That was from 1989. It's getting ridiculous...

    Yea my grandmother is cool. She took me to see Kindergarten Cop and Weekend At Bernie's when I was a kid. A couple years ago she watched Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and LA Confidential with me, and liked both. You wouldn't think that someone close to 90 would watch any of those. She has told me about going to see Snow White with my grandfather when it first came out and how he laughed out loud at the 7 dwarves singing. I never met him, so it's hard for me to imagine him doing it, but I can tell that they had a fun time seeing it together. She also saw Gone With The Wind with her mother when it first came out, which is her favorite movie now.

    One show that she loves is the Simpsons. She even watched the episode of Inside the Actor's Studio with the cast.

    What a horrible idea for a remake. How will they ever get someone as cute a Geroge Newburn to play the love interest? I saw this in the theatre when it first came out, and it made quite an impression on me.
    Don't forget:
    "Girls like you only come around once in a lifetime...

    Or twice in the same night, huh Brad!?"

    Walt Disney Pictures has been doing a few remakes lately.

    Freaky Friday
    Herbie: Fully Loaded
    Around the World in 80 Days

    And I'm sure there are some I haven't mentioned. Freaky Friday worked but Around the World in 80s Days did not. We'll have to see how Herbie does.

    To be fair, Around the World in 80 days wasn't really Disney. Waldenmedia (the company behind the upcoming Narnia film) was who financed the majority of the film, I belive. Disney was just the distributor.

    Adventures in Baby Sitting without Elizabeth Shue ?
    Pet Semetary without Fred Gwynne and the Ramones on the soundtrack ?

    Help, someone's ruining my youth!
