Movie remakes are for The Birds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It seems that there is nothing original anymore, and box office revenue are the only motivation in Hollywood. How many more classics will they desecrate? Does anyone prefer the remake over the original? What’s next 8 1/2 and Citizen Kane?

PSYCHO KILLER QU’EST QUE C’EST? FA FA FA FA FA FA FA FA…

“You can’t win, Darth. If you strike me down, I will be more powerful than you can possibly imagine.” – Obi-Wan Kenobi

 

How many Hitchcock remakes need to be done before Hollywood comes to the realization that no one will ever outdo the master? With the exception of Hitch remaking his own The Man Who Knew Too Much all these remakes are only futile attempts at suspense. I wouldn’t be surprised if they remade Vertigo starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz.
