They Are Remaking What?

17 Feb

Have you noticed how many remakes and reboots are coming out in the next year or two?

I read on moviepilot.com that Judge Dredd is being remade.  This time Dredd will be played by Karl Urban (Bones from the newest Star Trek).  The  Judge Dredd movies are based on the British comic book that began in to late 1970s and the comics are known for being a bit grittier than the 1995 movie starring Stallone and Wesley Snipes.  From the remake stills, I get a feeling it’s going to be a good movie.  Karl Urban is finally being noticed and he’s a pretty decent actor.  The costuming is similar to that of the comic books and the characters seem well rounded.  All in all, I’m looking forward to seeing it.

Some other remakes that are coming out are:

– 21 Jump Street

– Daredevil

– Dune

– Total Recall

– G.I Joe

– Robocop

– The Warriors

– The Amazing Spiderman

-It

-The Man of Steel

– The Great Gatsby

Which movie do you think should actually be remade?

    I do want to see a new Dune. The 80s movie was so boring, it would be great if someone would do it justice. I think there are already a couple of Great Gatsbys out and wouldn’t mind a remake, but Total Recall does not need to be redone! It holds up pretty well even at 20 years of age. It was based on the Philip K. Dick story “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale” just like Blade Runner was based on “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep.” Since Total Recall had little in common with the original tale, it would be interesting to see a new movie that was truer to short story, but not an outright remake of the Schwarzenegger film. And I would see a remake of “It.” Remember when there were non-stop Stephen King movie hits? That miniseries scared me so much as a kid! I borrowed it from the library recently and laughed all the way through it. The special effects did not hold up for that one!
