I'm holding out for a remake of Zardoz, with Owen Wilson playing Sean Connery's role and Drew Carey playing the disembodied head.

Lot of Romero bashing going on in this thread. Film at 11. No, not that one.

Cornwell: T.M.S.: Westworld is a great movie. and a remake could really kick ass. and will continue being quite excellent, so Hollywood can just stay the fark away, instead of creating some CGI behemoth of a movie that will fail completely and utterly.


Can all studios in Hollywood now please initiate the following four step plan:

1. Check in-pile of ideas for something that doesn't contain the words "Remake", "Sequel" or "Re-imagining".
2. Find out if this has some sort of quality, although not necssarily submitted by one of the regular cash-cows.
3. Fund the making of a movie that is actually original.
4. Profit!

I clearly said "...if they can find the right tone..."

Westworld is a great movie beecause of it's low budget.

Michael Crichton wrote it around existing back lot sets. The use of the same blank hallways over and over, the opening shot of the mirrored sunglasses to indicate the hovercraft; there are countless ways the film is fun entirly because of the cheap visuals.

If someone were to write a script keeping the 70's mentality in mind while exploiting the tech advancments (and culture) of the last 30 years it could kick ass.

At least it's not Futureworld.

Article sucked, but was worth it for the pic of Ann Margaret cleavage.

A remake of Westworld would be really cool with today's special effects. Granted, doing one with Arnold would have been retarded.

Sir Roderick Ponce von Fontlebottom, I don't watch a lot of Simpsons so that pic is new to me. And I have to say that is the damn funniest thing I've seen in ages.

It's just...perfect.

Preston Preston: It's just...perfect.

Unfortunately, that was the only funny bit in that episode and it was probably one of the funniest of the past few years of that show.

Guest starring Alan Moore.

Michael Crichton already did a remake of Westworld. You know, a crazy high-tech amusement park where the attractions go crazy and kill people? It's an idea as old as the dinosaurs...

weatherwax: I don't know what anybody else thinks but "Werewolf in a Women's Prison" looks like a tour de force.

Indeed. So bad it's good...the 'Showgirls' of werewolf flicks.

I wish Dragon Wars had been part of that list.

My 11 year old bought it, brought it home and subjected my wife and I to it. God, it sucked.

Heroic Poser: Actually, I'd see a Dolamite movie if it were a sequel to this:

/ no i have never seen the movie before
