    With Mortal Kombat, they said that it is going to keep true to the first movie. It is supposed to be a sequel to the first. They want Christopher Lambert as Raiden again.

    Can we at least get some info on who's remaking these films before we decide they suck?

    So many of those were great the way they were.

    Day Of The Dead is one of my favorite movies, leave it alone.

    The Crow, sure it could use some shining up due to what happened on the set, but that's part of the mystique of the film.

    Evil Dead... I will kill you if you touch that.

    Neverending Story. Hey Peter Jackson, fuck off. You can't improve on that. We get it, you're fat, and you like fantasy stuff. But don't screw up something that was already perfect.

    Phantasm. Well that movie was kind of mixed up to begin with. Maybe a remake will make it more intelligible.

    Since it is an independent story, unless he is going to try to follow Disney's version I wouldn't call it a "remake". He'll probably do a better job than Disney did with following the original story. (also, I like how you typed "snout" instead of "about" . I didn't even catch it until I re-read it.)

    I hope Neverending Story won't be CGI-ed to death. But you know it will be *gag*.

    The thing I never got about the Neverending Story is that if it never ended, how the hell was there a sequel. And that piece of crap was bad. I went from wanting to have a luck dragon to wanting to skin one alive.

    If it never ended, then it should have infinity sequels.

    It's a classic to a lot of people, especially if they saw it as children (as I did). I saw it again last summer and it is bad on a few levels, but there are tons of way worse kids' movies out there, and way worse fantasy movies. I still enjoy it, though as an adult I can see where it is lacking.

    Have you ever seen Legend?

    The Warriors was confirmed to NOT be remade, though.
    I must enter a signature.

    Since when are they making a remake of Mary Poppins? That's just wrong.

    Clive Barker is remaking Hellraiser himself, so hopefully it won't be that bad.

    Have you read the original "Neverending Story" book by Michael Ende? good stuff, the original movie was damn good but not quite faithful.

    So hopefully this new movie should be longer then the original movie and will be faithful to fans of the original book.

    you need to reserch your list better, a lot of thseo have been in development hell for years and a few such as karate Kid were just rumors or urban legends.

    FYI IMDB is run my fans, much like wikipeida, so you can't alwasy trust it.

    that being siad, off all those, sequals with out original cast don't work unless its a franchise like james bond, godzilla, or even the Lupin films. And remaking The Crow, jsut doenst seem right, that movie is way too awsome and has too big a fallowing for that.

    I really think everything about Lupin that's translated should just stick to the dub of the [adult swim] second season series. Compared to that, all the movie voices seem lame.
