I don't swear a lot on this blog. This post is a huge exception to that. You are forwarned.
Hollywood, and very specifically Universal Pictures, Martin Bregman and Marc Shmuger, go fuck yourselves.
Seriously. Go. Fuck. Your. Selves.
And this isn't coming from a place of super fandom of De Palma's Scarface. This is coming from my pure exasperation with this trend that just won't die.
3D is going to eventually die, but these remakes are just going to keep coming. They are going to keep paving over the past with shitty movies that tarnish the legacy of better films, and the people who are doing this, from the beginning of the process to the end are all assholes.
How many versions of this story do we need to see, and how could they possibly up the ante on a bloody, profanity laced movie starring someone who at the time had been nominated for 5 Oscars. Yes, I know the 1983 version was a very topical remake anyway.
I know there are no original ideas anymore, but the least someone involved could do is at least put the veneer of originality on these things instead of attaching them to an existing property, because they could totally start another franchise with those same elements.
But they won't because they are all lazy asses who deserve to get punched in the throat and beaten within an inch of their lives. Instead, they will get promotions.
Fuckheads. Every last one of them.
