Damn, now that was a thread. Good old bunny.
and bruno. weird when engaged people have interesting takes. we did have a star is born last year, and upcoming another iteration of little women. oh, and west side story. that thread was pre-marvel hegemony which doesnt get remade so much as rebooted which may just be more about marketing than an actual distinction. then there are the gender swaps like ghostbusters and oceans 8 which are both lacking the spark of the original properties.
and tom moody, chased off during the clinton debacle.
But seriously, I oversold Point of No Return in that thread -- it's a good remake but La Femme Nikita (now retitled Nikita) is the better movie.
i almost mentioned you but my spidey senses felt you lurking, tom. i dont recall any election-era pitchforks but my memory is slighter than my interest in revisiting it.
Glad to hear it. Maybe bunny and bruno are still lurking (but probably not). I always check the Tree, and usually learn stuff!
And yes the delirium tremens scene in Le Cercle Rouge is good, as in, creepy.
