Dsinder Between Total Recall and Robocop Verhoeven was responsible for two of the biggest grossing si-fi movies of the late 80's. Over $300.000.000 combined.

This new tripe..? I'll give it a pass. Unless you have the magic that 2 great actors like Ironside and Ronnie Cox can bring, just give it up.

Max Fightmaster I'm sure you've seen Red Dawn Rog, because it looks like you're going to need a list for the best things about the original of that movie.

HowardC Correction:

They've only got shitty writers and directors and their disposal but they want to make some money. The solution of course is to trick the audience into thinking the film will be good by adding a popular franchise name to it.

Basically every big budget film released since 2000 has followed this model. There is no need to invest the time and money on a good plot and a good director when you have names like "Transformers" "Batman" and "Nightmare on Elm Street" to throw around.

Dr. Boogie They want it both ways: they want to remake the move in a different light, but they also want to draw in fans of the original. In short, the same reasoning behind the naming of Troll 2.

Terrible-D Excellent write up of classic cinema Rog!

As far as the remake, why wouldn't they just name the new film after the story if they wanted to distance themselves from the 90 version? I will never understand the hollywood thought process(which is not true, I know they wanted to cash in on the name).

HowardC I won't go to see the new one out of protest. Colin Farrell, in an interview months ago, said something like "yeah they wanted to try a different direction this time and cast an actual actor, with actual talent".

Now Arnie might be a lousy Governor, and a horrible husband... but the guy pretty much invented the action genre and kooky accent or not, when it comes to action films any performance he gives is going to be 1000 times better than that little Irish tool.

He also implied that TR was a bad film and in need of a remake. Anybody who had such a low opinion of the film should have NEVER been involved with it.

Total Recall is a silly film plot-wise, but it turned out great anyway soley because of the great performances and the great practical effects. And in the remake both of those are missing and thus there is no point in seeing it.

Max Fightmaster No "Get your ass to Mars"=Movie failure.

MarioRPG The remake... is OK. I mean, they did include the 3 boobed chick so it's not a complete failure.

A-bomb What a great movie. Why do they have to try to remake movies that were perfect the first time around?
