The Remake of the Warriors

Unread postby Triple-S » Wed Jun 17, 2009 9:36 pm

In doing some research on IMDB about this film, I see that Tony Scott will be at it again, as he is set to film a remake of the kitsch-classic Walter Hill fable "The Warriors", setting it this time in Los Angeles. I am cringing already.

I have yet to understand the point of remaking such a great film, that in no way shape or form really needs it. The original is a classic and is still fresh and a great watch 30 years later. I am a big fan of this movie, and a couple of others my age actually are due to the release of the "Rockstar games" video game version of the movie. (I was a fan before this as I had watched it a few before). Why the sudden rush for a remake like this, when it would be just as easy and better to just rerelease the original, I would think that would do a lot better at the box office than this lame excuse for a remake.

It gets worse.

A remake of "Red Dawn".

Chris Hemsworth, who played James Kirk's father at the start of the Star Trek movie, will play Patrick Swayze's role.

Josh Peck (who?) will play Charlie Sheen's role (his only major credit was from a Nickelodeon show).

Adrienne Palicki, from the TV show Friday Night Lights, will play Jennifer Grey's role.

Now for the piece de resistance...the director is Dan Bradley...who has never directed anything. He's a former stuntman with credits as an assistant director for Quantum of Solace, Spider-Man 2, and Dukes of Hazzard.

Mere words cannot describe how awful this will be...so let's try this.

:fu:

Peck actually isn't bad, he's sort of more of a guy you'd cast in a remake of "The Honeymooners" as Ralph a couple of years from now. Just doesn't seem to fit that part well at all, but I've been wrong before. I originally thought Heath Ledger as Batman was going to be a bad fit.

How is remaking Red Dawn even possible at this point? There's really no big superpower threat out there. China isn't interested in the least bit with starting a war with it's biggest business partner and is not normally an aggressor nation. The only scenario where that could even happen is in retaliation for the US defending Taiwan, and even that's iffy as that would likely be the start of a Nuclear war moreso than an actual war. They'd really have to stretch so that someone like a Kim Sung ILL would overtake the Chinese Gov't and build up his millitary to topple the US.

agree whole-heartedly. Warriors was great and kinda one of a kind, a remake has bad idea written all over it...

You don't understand, really? It's all about that potential cash. Course this has flop written all over it so I don't know how they're rationalizing making it but they obviously think it can work.

Sorry, don't know who you are but you can't top scene's like this


half the charm is the outfits of the gangs themselves. No way you can outfit gangs today like pimps and Hop-Sing (3:28). Not too PC


at least they can cast David Schwimmer for the role of the leader of the Orphans...

Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB
