I don't know if this was mentioned or not, but Hollyweird just took another classic and turned it into toilet water (Before the flushing).

Just found out tonight that the classic movie ARTHUR. Who is playing the part of our favorite rich drunk? The unfunny twit by the name of Russell Brand :doh:

There will never be a chemistry on the silver screen like Moore & Geilgud..

This should not come to a surprise, but this should be against the law..

What can this atrocity accomplish? Why give untalented actors free reign and piss all over a classic?

I'm glad that Moore & Geilgud are resting peaceful and know nothing about this abortion..

Dudley Moore is turning in his grave as we speak. This is an atrocity to man kind. This movie ranks way up in the top 20 for so many quotable one liners from Moore...

 

"Were's my hat? Oh, I hate it when that happens."

 

 

Off and on topic, I saw a commercial for an American remake of the quite nicely Scandi film "Let The Right One In" re-titled "Right One In."

 

PLEASE, could someone put something in the water to elicit free/creative thought again. THANK YOU!

You're never gonna stop the flow of remakes so it's best to just ignore them.

 

Thankfully, the proposed remake of "RoboCop" (aka "Fat Freddy's favorite movie ever in this universe or any alternate dimensions thereof") seems to have become a victim of MGM's financial meltdown.

 

The horror geeks on IMDb are currently tearing their hair out over an Americanized remake of Dario Argento's "Suspiria" that's in the works, i.e. "How DARE they mess with such a classic?" -- although to be honest, I've seen "Suspiria" fairly recently and I didn't see what all the whoop-de-doo was about it (it looked great, but was very meandering and didn't make a whole hella lot of sense) so I probably would be interested in a re-tread of that one, with current special FX technology and maybe a script that's a little more linear.

I'm with you with this. I'm curious what it will be with a Hollywood director and some modern stuff. The original movie definitely lacked something imo.

It had great gore and a lotta pretty girls but what it lacked was...oh, I don't know...maybe a story? :lol: Seriously, it jerked the audience around for an hour and a half and then they finally revealed that the school was a front for a coven of witches. I'm like "OK, so they're a bunch of witches. Aaaaaaaaaand? So?" Then a whole lotta stuff catches on fire, and suddenly it's the end. Double-You-Tee-Eff? And yet there are people out there who claim it's the greatest horror film ever made. It wouldn't even make my top thousand.

I believe if we all ignore these "remakes" and they tanked at the box office, then they will not look to remake these classics.

One colossal flaw in this theory is that these remakes are made for the mindless drones who populate the good ole

U$ of A... and make up over 80% of its population.

 

 

And on topic and with reference to Susperia, pretty damn creepy and think of it in respect to when it came. Most of us saw it as kids which left an impression...

 

Argento is an interesting dude and I think the fanboys are rabid for anything he does.

 

My 2 cents.

Same everywhere I think. For example, some of the tabloid newspapers here print headlines and stories that are complete fabrication, yet people believe it and it forms the majority opinion. IMO the majority should not be entitled to an opinion as their IQ just about enables them to get themselves dressed in the morning. A simple test would be that anyone who says, "I was like, no way!" or similar utterances is immediately banned from ever having an opinion on anything. Of course, that won't stop them flocking to see the latest film with Brad Pitt, Zac Efron or Jennifer Aniston (etc) in, regardless of how mind-numbingly awful it is. :rant:

 

Maybe the only thing that would make people truly revolt against the remakes would be if someone tried to do Star Wars. There would be riots!

    • Shit. As much as he annoys me lately, I hope he recovers quickly. 
    • New album 'Life Will Never Be The Same' out March 3 through Mighty Music. Press release: After their previous release “The Sky is the Limit”, Norwegian band STARGAZER entered the radar of connoisseurs of the hard rocking world. The group was loudly hailed as one to watch. They received a lot of great reviews all over the western world and were, back then in late 2019, ready to take on the world for serious touring. But serious touring saw an abrupt end due to Covid-19 for almost every band in 2020-21, with Stargazer being no exception. The nordic five-piece didn’t loose their spirit and, diligently, took the downtime to start penning their next album. Produced by guitar player William Ernstsen and vocalist Tore André Helgemo, “Life Will Never Be The Same” is the result of those dark times with a silver lining ahead. Engineered by William at Jedimasterstudios, Trondheim, and mixed and mastered in Medley Studios, Copenhagen, by Soren Andersen (Glenn Hughes, Electric Guitars, etc), “Life Will Never Be The Same” is exactly the kind of album that you’d expect from a matured Stargazer and then some. The five-piece powerhouse hammers on with Scandinavian vibes that consists of virtuosity and a vintage sound with a modern twist. Firing on all cylinders in combination with the sense of good melodies, great riffs, solos and songwriting handcraft. With one of rock’s best voices and one of the best blues-based hard rock guitar players around today. All this on top of a rock steady hard groove with killer rock songs such as “Live My Dream”, or down to the most tender and heartfelt tunes, as for example the single “Live Today”, with emotions worn on their sleeves. “Live Will Never Be The Same” is the sound of Norwegian classic hard rock flagship, and Stargazer sets sail again with its this third release in their discography. One to change their life – and yours – for good. Tracklisting: 1. Can You Conceive It 2. Live My Dream 3. Rock The Sky 4. Live Today 5. Don’t Kill 6. Will I Come To Heaven 7. Heartbroken 8. Turn Off The Light 9. Beyond The Moon 10. Take Me Home 11. Push Me    
    • Forgot to mention this here, but last month I was officially declared as in remission.
    • Hope he makes a full recovery. If it was me, I would change next years tour name to Operation Heartcrime.
    • Former QUEENSRŸCHE Singer GEOFF TATE Underwent Aortic Valve Replacement December 6, 2022   May contain affiliate links   Former QUEENSRŸCHE singer Geoff Tate has revealed that he underwent an aortic valve replacement this past summer. According to NHS, an aortic valve replacement is a type of open-heart surgery used to treat problems with the heart's aortic valve.   The aortic valve controls the flow of blood out from the heart to the rest of the body. An aortic valve replacement involves removing a faulty or damaged valve and replacing it with a new valve made from synthetic materials or animal tissue.   The 63-year-old musician discussed his health in a new interview with Beneath A Desert Sky. Asked how he is feeling, nearly five months after his operation, Tate said: "I feel really good overall. This might be the first time I'm telling someone in the press what I went to the hospital for. I had a procedure done called an aortic valve replacement in my heart. Long story short, I was feeling very fatigued one day while on tour. It was challenging for me to climb stairs. Anyway, I thought it best to get checked out, and after several tests from my doctor, he indicated that this particular type of surgery needed to be done. I'd say it took around a month [after the surgery] before I started feeling better. Honestly, I could barely walk after it, and I couldn't sing at all. Before this, I'd never been in a hospital in my life."   He added: "I can't say that I'm feeling '100 percent' better, so to speak. However, I'm definitely feeling a lot better now than I was over the summer. Just taking it a day at a time and am grateful to get back on the road." On July 3, Tate took to his Facebook page to share a photo of him with Dr. Sami Kueri from the department of cardiovascular surgery at the Universitäts-Herzzentrum Freiburg-Bad Krozingen (University Heart Center Freiburg) in Bad Krozingen, Germany, and he included the following message: "All my gratitude to the talented Dr. Sami Kueri for giving me a healthy heart!! Feeling so much better each day!" In June, Tate said that he would take a few months off the road as he recovered from a medical procedure.   On June 13, Geoff, who fronted QUEENSRŸCHE for 30 years — from the band's inception through 2012 — took to his social media to write: "I am having a medical procedure and my health professionals want me to recover over the Summer. I will be back and rocking South America in January. Looking forward to seeing everyone on the road." Tate's recent tour celebrated the 30th anniversary of QUEENSRŸCHE's "Empire" and "Rage For Order" albums. In April 2014, Tate and QUEENSRŸCHE announced that a settlement had been reached after a nearly two-year legal battle where the singer sued over the rights to the QUEENSRŸCHE name after being fired in 2012. Fellow original QUEENSRŸCHE members Michael Wilton (guitar),Scott Rockenfield (drums) and Eddie Jackson (bass) responded with a countersuit. The settlement included an agreement that Wilton, Rockenfield and Jackson would continue as QUEENSRŸCHE, while Tate would have the sole right to perform the albums "Operation: Mindcrime" and "Operation: Mindcrime II" in their entirety live.   Tate was replaced in QUEENSRŸCHE by former CRIMSON GLORY singer Todd La Torre. Geoff will embark on a tour in 2023 to celebrate the 35th anniversary of "Operation: Mindcrime".
