Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Why can't these a-holes remake something worth remaking?

Like Blake's 7?

I agree. It would look brilliant with all the modern special effects.

And a bigger budget. The original had the budget of a police procedural.

The Guardian's take on the news that the Yanks are going to re-make Only Fools and Horses for the US market.

Contains the occasional swearword.

As for the re-make............................ :roll:

you know what, its not that bad to remake a 20 or 30 year old show or movie. its the remakes to movies that came out in the LAST TEN YEARS that i role my eyes at.

yeah i'm looking at you spiderman and fantastic four. i liked both of them and wish they would just make sequals instead of starting over.

the only ray of light i see is the guy that made Chronicle is in charge of the F4 remake.



and based on early reviews i've seen, whats in that trailer is nothing compared to the full film, which has been described as simply "badass".

I wouldn't mind seeing remakes of Quatermass* with modern CGI. :D

* The films/series, not our Quatermass! :lol:

No there is no originality in Hollywood.

And to some degree WE the public are to blame. We expect big screen big budget movies and Hollywood isnt immune to the GFC. They want or need a sure thing.

Its still no excuse for lack of an imagination.

I hated the first 3 men and a baby. Please... where do I start..... :evil:
