  4. As much as many,me included,think of "A bridge too far" being a cult film, I'd like to see it remade "Saving Private Ryan" style to make it less "Hollywood".
     
  5. Reissues or remakes. Difficult to achieve the same production and reaction to original masters I'd think. Compare "Pearl Harbour" to "Tora Tora". The Italian Job 2003 perhaps fell short of the 1969 classic.

    The Ladykillers ( Sir Alec Guinness) compared to Tom Hanks' version ? judge for yourselves. How do you replicate Guinness and Sellers, Cecil Parker, Herbert Lom, Danny Green, Jack Warner and Katie Johnson.

    Would like to see The Wall - Live in Berlin July 1990 in the Shops again.

    "Shot on Potsdamer Platz, the no man's land between East and West Germany, the producers didn't know if the area would be filled with mines - no one did. Before setting up, they did a sweep of the area and found a cache of munitions and a previously unknown SS Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler bunker. The Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler started as Hitler's elite personal bodyguard but were later diverted to Eastern and Western fronts. There is a misconception probably due to the SS division's name that the bunker found was the Führerbunker or the place were Adolf Hitler committed suicide which is false. The Führerbunker was in another location." Wiki

    The Scorpions Live in Berlin Dec 5 - 6, 1990
     
  6. If you see God, Tell Him, comedy with Richard Briers, never to be shown again by the BBC? I dont know why.
     
  7. Now these may not be classed as especially old to some, But if someone could do a good job remaking them.......

    The Thing....John Carpenter 1982?

    El Cid .........Charlten Heston 1960s ?

    The Longest Day......without Tom Hanks with a bit of luck.
     
  8. Having just seen the fish and chip episode tonight, Dad's Army the film, but just a bit more ally.
     
  9. Where eagles dare.

    Guns of Navarone.
     
  10. Be careful what you ask for........

    The remake of "The Wicker Man" was the most appaling pile of crap I have ever seen. :twisted:
     
  11. Not meaning to depress anyone, but the rather disturbing but classic film Straw Dogs is actually being reproduced now.....

    With an all American cast

    Set in deepest Alabama


    So,glad to see they are not messing with the story at all then.
     
  12. Talking about American remakes and such,reminded me about an awesome film.

    Group of soldiers on exercise manage to insult some local trappers......and then its a free for all as the trappers hunt them down one by one.

    Southern Comfort....what a film.

    John Carpenter's The Thing is virtually the only exception to the rule that remakes=never as good as the original.

    and as for where Hollywood are concerned? ffs. which version of 'get carter' is the better? 'the fog'? 'the wicker man'? the sooner people stop going to see shite like this at the pictures, they might get a clue and come up with some original ideas for a change.
     
  14. Two films, one post, deliverance, burt reynolds, with the pig scene more graphic, and the our favourite.............. wait for it................
