Damn You Hollywood Redux

You know that scene in The Godfather where Sonny beats the crap out of his brother-in-law in the street after finding his sister was a victim of domestic abuse?

I'd love to see that happen to the executive who greenlit the remake of Starship Troopers, because they are an asshole.

Still, I don't hate them as much as I hate the person who said yes to remaking Robocop. They should be thrown down the stairs like Bear in Get Shorty at least 3 times a day for the rest of their lives.

Of course, they could be one and the same person. Then they deserve so much worse. *shake fist*

There should be at least a 20 to 30 year buffer for remakes.

Troopers remains an impressive special effects film and one I revisit often, maybe better sequels rather than remakes??

I never saw the need for remakes in the minds of filmmakers. Sure they may have a built in audience but an audience who has already been told that story. Give me something fresh and I will reward you for it.
