The remake hits select theaters this Wednesday. Solid cast of course it probably won’t be as good as the original. This movie still has one of craziest endings I’ve seen in film

I think this one has potential too. The original was a classic but keep in mind this film will be alot more faithful to the source material than the original. So there's that, I guess.

As far as remakes which I usually always give a kneejerk dismissal...this does look like it will be pretty true to the original.

As far as other good remakes:

The "Let the Right One" remake was decent..I dismissed it immediately but watched it and thought outside of a few over CGI'ed moments in the US version it was really well cast and done.

"Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" was pretty faithful too.

David Fincher is a dark director anyway.

In the right hands It can be done well.

If we don't get to see Elizabeth Olsen's tits I'm giving it 1 star regardless

    • when I was in TN in the Navy I was in a 4 man room and I was the senior person (by like 2 weeks) so I had to present the room for inspection Monday morning. Sunday night the place was a pit so I told everyone that we had to get it cleaned up. I was accused of being a racist by one of the black guys in the room because I was telling them what to do. I then realized that racism is a way for stupid lazy people to reason away doing things they should be doing and get other people to do them instead.
    • New Podcast is out.  Jourdan Rodrigue stops by to discuss Olsen, the rookies, more. I think you will enjoy the episode, she really knows her stuff. You should also subscribe to her "Three and Out" podcast on itunes and everywhere else.    Episode available on all your podcast apps, just search for Carolina Huddle  or just listen here. 
    • I'm somewhat concerned over Cam's shoulder - but the LB group really has me worried. Luke's concussion really has me freaked out still... and I pray that TD's ACL continues to be strong.
