Unanswered:  Can I count Salem's Lot as a movie?

Can I count Salem's Lot as a movie?

The miniseries was released in an unedited three-hour movie format on DVD before, but does that really count? There's also the 112 minute version released on VHS in the 80's, but is that even worth...

Star Trek

I know I haven't been here for a while. I've been on a massive music binge for a while, hanging out at Besteveralbums, but recently I've been watching Star Trek, Star Trek: The Next Generation, and...

To be fair, that is a good thing for his movie to be remade three times, but Kurosawa still beats him out because he's had a few movies remade at least twice as opposed to one movie.

If your view is that I'm sad for beliving something I never once said I believed, such as the bull**** idea that popularity = quality (which annoys me), I tend to be reasonably offended. Your...

Re: A female directors thread, because why not.

If it's not clear to you, that's your own fault.

Ok, if you need me to phrase it like a third-grader, here you go: Ms. Varda makes a lot of really good movies. A lot of people from her country...

Re: A female directors thread, because why not.

Then what's Varda's specialty?

Again, I'm hoping Greta Gerwig gets up there. Her first two movies were huge hits and Oscar nominees. The lack of female appreciation makes me eager to see Greta...

If it's so important for you to treat me like a fool, go to imdb and see how many times Varda makes it into the top 50 greatest foreign directors lists. I checked yesterday and read a lot of lists...

If a director’s value is based on how famous he or she is, that’s a sad comment IMO.[/quote]

Re: Evil Dead 2 vs. Army of Darkness

Evil Dead 2 is probably desert island material for me.

The Thing From Another World (1951) VS. The Thing (1982)

Re: The Thing From Another World (1951) VS. The Thing (1982)

The Thing. The original film was very good, but it had a feeling of 50's cheese that it couldn't fight, despite the high quality of special effects. You don't get 80's cheese with The Thing: you...

Both are phenomenal, but even though I'm more of a Forrest Gump person I gotta say the better movie is The Truman Show.

Re: Movies you PRAY they never remake

The Godfather's an obvious pic, but to keep up originality I'd say Aliens, unless they reboot the whole series as a TV show.
