I never saw the original. Is it some untouchable piece of art that must not be tampered with or something? All I remember are the ads with Christian Slater doing his Jack Nicholson impression.

Now if it was on Showtime and it was from the people who brought us Dexter........

No.  Just no.
 
"The Ashleys"... really?!?

The original was a true classic. Slater had a great line when he staged the bodies to look like gay lovers by putting evian bottles in their hand...."This is Ohio... If you're not holding a brewsky, you may as well be picking daisies".

The description suggests that the series will be a "sequel" to the movie rather than a reboot, though this does not demonstrate that the individual who presented this idea should not be farked gently with a chainsaw.

It hasn't aged tremendously well. A lot of the dialogue is "Juno"-like "teen speak" that no teen ever actually used. Slater's Nicholson Jr. impression is grating. And the ending doesn't really follow from what came before it.

But Wynona is a tasty biscuit.

It was...adequate,at best. As far as final projects go,I will say that it was a far more respectable farewell to Tony Scott than Streetfighter was for Raul Julia. That must count for something,right?

I was a nice, dark change of pace after John Hughes' films started to become stale retreads. If nothing else, it sharply satirized how society glorifies teen suicides.

Watch the movie before you comment on something you are not familiar with.

The invented "teen speak" in films is actually a clever trick to keep a script from becoming dated by the slang, when it might take 5 years or more from the time of the script's composition to a finished film being made (and then it further helps keep the film from then seeming dated for a time.)

technically it's, "How do you think he'd react to a son who had a limp wrist with a pulse?" but same difference...

Will they keep the original ending? (spoiler: The school blows up and everyone dies. But they can all finally get along in Heaven.)

I used to watch Top Chef, but then it became about the drama and not about the food, and even the commercials for Real Hoebags of _Place_ were insufferable enough to turn me off the channel completely.

What it is is a good movie that had a good cast and fit exaclty in the timeframe when it did. Just like Red Dawn and Footloose needed to be left alone, so does Heathers. Part of why these movies worked is because they were made in the 80's. Would Saturday Night Fever really fly nowadays? No, because it is rooted in the late 70's. Not every movie translates across decades, and I would alot rather they left shiat the Hell alone than fark it up.

Besides, I think it's pissing most of us off that these hacks can't come up with anything new, it' either reality TV, a "remake", a "reboot", or an "adaptation", it's getting really farking old.

Haven't watched it yet. Have it on my DVR. I don't even think I watched the original, but I've never forgotten the imagery of the bodies hanging there in the air. That's marketing you can't plan on, almost 30 years of image retention...

No, it wasn't. It was an anti-John Hughes teen movie.

It was directed by Michael Lehman and written by David Waters, who would both go on to do Hudson Hawk. Make of that what you will.

You've seen everything important about it. It's not intelligent enough to be a good pysch thriller and not fast enough to be an action thriller. Michael Crichton + Robin Cook just didn't make a good combination. It's PG so there aren't even any hot coma patient boobs. Most of it involves the female doctor wandering empty halls and looking over her shoulder a lot.

Not interested in the remake, I have no idea who thought it was a good idea to take one of the most boring "thrillers" to ever hit the screen and draw it out into a mini-series, but they deserve a cockpunch.

A lot of times it's basically the same thing. The same story re-made and the original actors show up in cameos as the parents.

It wasn't a series, so it isn't a reboot. It is a sequel or a remake.

I fell in love after watching the shower scene - completely clean, but oh so dirty. Actual, honest-to-glob love. Not a schoolboy crush (or just a schoolboy crush), not unbridled lust (or just unbridled lust), but, at least for a moment, deep, abiding, paradoxically selfish and sacrificial love. A love for the ages, a love to shake the heavens, outshine the sun, blah, blah, blah. Deeply shallow, fleetingly eternal. Winona Ryder can become an old wrinkly bag of bones yet I will always see her only as a Platonic ideal of the female form, impossibly curvy yet firm, stunningly beautiful in both a sexual and non sexual way. All from 15 seconds of screen time from decades ago.

The difference between the terms reboot and remake is bullshiat Hollywood-speak. Throw in re-imagining as well.
