Nobody on this planet could convince me that remaking BTTF would be a good idea.

Why do you think these films need remade/rebooted? Can't there be some films that are left alone?


Personally, I would like every film series I'm a fan of to be rebooted. It means I have more/another version of something I like. Another persons take on the story/characters.
If I end up not liking the new one, so be it. The original will still exist and my estimation of it will be even higher because it succeeded where others failed.

I'm sure the internet would be pissed if Michael Bay or Bret Ratner were rebooting Star Wars. Instead, it's trusted JJ Abrams, so all is well.
Heck, I'd want LotR to be rebooted or see a fourth film written by George R.R. Martin. More Middle Earth cannot be a bad thing.


I don't understand that at all, but fair enough.


More of the story/characters. Another interpretation. What's not to love?

Lots. I love my favourite films for what they are, I don't need to see them remade differently.

I'm not against reboots or anything, but surely the reason you like a film is because of the way it's interpreted, and the only reason you'd want another interpretation is if you didn't like the one you had. I can see what you're saying, but I still don't understand it.

It's essentially saying a film is shit before you've seen it. It could turn out to be your favourite film ever.

I can kind of see where Vad3r is coming from but not to the point where I agree with him.

The problem for me with reboots is not that they're pissing on something I love but that they're cashing in it and therefore tainting the original.

There is a part of me that might be curious about a BTTF reboot but I'd be more pissed off at how unoriginal and lazy it is. I'd much rather see Hollywood make an original film rather than come up with an original interpretation of an old one.

Haha not really, if they remade Die Hard obviously it wouldn't affect how I view the original (sequels are far more damaging in that respect and even at that it's quite easy to pretend that something like DH5 doesn't exist). I think the only way a remake/reboot could really taint the original is if it was better which is extremely rare; Bond and Batman are the only examples I can think of and even at that Craig is clearly attempting a different tone from Moore's era and that goes for Nolan and Burton respectively (let's not mention B&R).

I want a remake of 8 1/2, I know many of you will say Nine, but i will instantly dismiss you and say I want a REMAKE not a musical about a great film, I want that great story, the struggle.

Perhaps the rule should be bad or disappointing films should only ever be rebooted. Daredevil therefore is a prime candidate given the great source material, yet utterly terrible screen interpretation.

So the aim is to get to a point of excellence where it's clear it can never be beaten, like Batman. Batman should never be filmed again, it's impossible to beat Nolans version. Superman/Man of Steel, whatever, they can try time and time again but I feel it's a poisoned chalice, it's now so bad it can't be resurrected, this being due to the 80s versions being so good they shouldn't have ever attempted a reboot in 2006 (?), and again in 2013. Star Wars kind of follows the same rules, albeit with prequels. Star Trek, a prime example. The reboot so far has been painfully terrible.

There must be a hundred great ideas that were disappointingly filmed by teams who should have known better? Where the first version sucked so they just left it?

OK, this is something I posted before, can't remember if it was on this forum or another one, so 'stop me if you've heard this one before' as The Smiths once said, but here we go.

HIGHLANDER.  But not as a movie (and certainly not one with Ryan Reynolds, as was once mooted and thankfully fell apart...), as a GAME OF THRONES-type HBO show. Ten or so episodes per year so we can really get to grips with the whole Connor McCloud character and his adventures, jumping back and forth through time-periods with interweaving storylines and a great cast of characters...

And it should be really full-on and hardcore, full of blood and nudity and fucking...

I would deffo watch this show.

There was already a very decent tv series of Highlander starring Adrian Paul as Connors brother Duncan.

Id be up for a big budget Highlander reboot feature film but for gods sake get someone who is actually scottish to play Connor.Thank god the version with Ryan '' Franchise killer '' Reynolds fell through!

Not so much reboots as second chances, for both directors.

The Shadow

Director : Sam Raimi
Writer : Sam Raimi, Garth Ennis, based on Ennis' recent update of the character.
Lamont Cranston : Benedict Cumberbatch
Margo Lane: Christina Hendricks

The Phantom

Director: Joe Dante
Writer: Edgar Wright
Kit Walker : Jon Hamm

Of course, I wouldn't want it any other way. Besides, Raimi is the maniacal master. I kinda like Mulcahy's flick actually, but the franchise is due for a new blood transfusion.

Yeah, it's good fun, certainly not without flaws, but it's got plenty of style, amusing, matinee-ish performances and an excellent score too. Baldwin was a solid choice for the lead at the time, but Cumberbatch would be perfect for a new franchise, he's got the menace, the suave and the complexity required, in my opinion.

Gosling would certainly be my first choice for the lead as well, the guy is perfect for it.
But as for the rest, my suggestion would be something like this

Daredevil

Having been to see different productions of plays, I can see the value of remakes. Sir Ben Kingsley and Alan Howard's Waiting for Godot was totally different from Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan's. It was the same text, but with very different (and very good) versions. The former was stark and bleak, and the latter was very funny (and if you haven't seen Ian McKellan's film Richard III, you really should).

Zepherelli's sumptuous Romeo & Juliet contrasts sharply with Baz Luhrman's Romeo + Juliet. Zepherelli is a lovely "full text" version, and Baz Luhrman's version is an audacious version which takes the breath away. So with remakes/reboots you can have both - but unfortunately more often than not in film, they can go wrong and the new versions are with us forever. Get Carter and Conan spring to mind.

It would be interesting to see a remake of Sam Fuller's Shock Corridor - of course some of the afflictions of the inmates would change - Christopher Nolan would be good at this - a paranoid fantasy set in an insane asylum.

In addition it would be nice to see Christian Bale against Leonardo Di Caprio in something. They've be good in Twelve Angry Men, or perhaps Glengarry Glen Ross.

A reboot of Rambo should be done by doing a proper and faithful adaptation of First Blood.

Of course this would be a one off with no room for sequels as those who have read the book will know.

Eric Bana would be a great choice as Rambo.The guy is really tough looking but can portray the vulnerability as well.
