After the ET guns/radios debacle, I think Steve learned his lesson.

The reboot is believed to have been held back by the amount of money Spielberg has been asking for the rights, and his demands to be involved in any Gremlins project.

Less than nothing to see here.

It's not that difficult. Use puppets, with as little CGI as possible (erase the wires, etc..). Bring back Spielberg to produce and Joe Dante directing. It really isn't that difficult.

Flappyhead: Remember CGI Yoda? Yeah.


"I really liked Frank Oz and puppet Yoda; it was masterful how he turned a puppet into an primary character, whose monologs and mannerisms are as iconic as any human. I just wish he had looked a lot faker--shinier, if you will--and that we'd gotten a chance to see him flip around with his "little laser sword"."

Using puppets would increase the cost by almost 6% and make it nearly impossible for the asian Gremlin to use Kung-fu. And you can forget about "bullet-time" fighting.

How does Hollywood completely remaking a movie from your childhood change anything? Does it mean you can't remember being 8 and thinking Gremlins kick ass?

I will admit, I don't get it.

Oh for the love of god.

Like the recent Paul Verhoeven remakes, the Gremlins reboot will likely not realize how tongue-in-cheek the Joe Dante directed movies were, which is what made them work (and Gremlins 2 remains way too meta for most people to get).
 
2013-01-17 10:38:58 AM

I really don't think someone can screw up Gremlins.  I mean.. Honestly.  It was bad 20 years ago.
Fun. But bad.
That's all it needs.  That, and skip the CGI.  But they can't do that, so whatever.

2013-01-17 11:20:35 AM
Oh, no! Not Gremlins! The horror, the horror! We are talking about the American Motors car, aren't we?

As an attempt to grab back some of the compact and sub-compact market from the Japanese, they were distinctly sub-par.  Those dastardly Japanese with their low prices and quality-controlled production were so unfair!

The movie was mildly entertaining and good MST3K B-movie fodder. Some of the cult movie fans may be attached to it. But there's no way the general audience cares. Damn the Hollywood executives and pointy-headed nerds, full speed ahead!

I'm sure they could do some better special effects today, although it was originally puppet-work and good puppet-work, so they are unlikely to splash out a lot of money on good CGI.

I won't mistake Gremlins for sacred but it just sounds like lazy make-work for Hollywood. I watched the movie recently and except for a few 1980s hairdos and some bits of dated dialogue, it aged pretty well. The "bathroom buddy" looks clunky but it's supposed to be tacky and is every bit as relevant today.

Arguably, it's better to remake average movies than classics. With Casablanca, there's no room for improvement. A tatented director COULD, in theory, make a better Gremlins movie, or at the least provide a refreshing look that would stand on its own right.

My heart longs for such remakes. How many times have you watched a film where the casting was slightly wrong, or some shots seemed botched, or the effects were beyond the makers etc? Sure seems some midlivel movies could be remade. Of course, those movies, being failures, wouldn't attract investors.

Highlander was cool, and kinda fun with great music, but dear god it was bad like you're saying. I think a reboot would be great as long as they don't try to remake Highlander 2 or any elements from it.

Because it doesn't NEED to be remade, especially not rebooted. It's fine as-is, most likely if it is remade, they will laze through it, and it will suck, thereby dragging the original movie down by association. Also, there's nothing to add without farking up the movie, and if they add nothing, the SFX were good enough the first time around that there is beyond no need to do this.

Not only that, the movie-viewing public needs to stop letting them get away with this lazy bullshiat, it's just a way to ump out more movies while doing less work, and it's the suckers who keep going to this crap that are helping to perpetuate it.

That's why...

Wouldn't it just be easier to re-release the original, then? There's nothing wrong with it as is. That's usually the problem with remakes - there was no reason to do them in the first place, so it's an exercise in futility.

styckx: The Martian Manhandler: born_yesterday: BigLuca: movieman_1979: It's not that difficult. Use puppets, with as little CGI as possible (erase the wires, etc..). Bring back Spielberg to produce and Joe Dante directing. It really isn't that difficult.

Using puppets would increase the cost by almost 6% and make it nearly impossible for the asian Gremlin to use Kung-fu. And you can forget about "bullet-time" fighting.

And in the remake--Gizmo can talk! And boy, does he have some HILARIOUS one-liners!

I can just see the poster now...

"...And Jack Black as Gizmo"

Well shiat.. If that's how we're going to roll we might as well give the lead to Dane Cook

kbronsito: Black Swan on the other hand... that's due for a remake. In fact, it should be remade every year with two different actresses. I'm thinking Anne Hathaway and Rachel Bilson. Also are there any plans to remake whild things yet?


Do you like watching awkward pseudo-sex scenes between actresses you find? They managed to make sex between Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman a complete turn off. Why on earth would you want to see more people do that? You have the Internet - it's full of porn, a lot of it with pretty girls actually looking like they enjoy doing that to each other. Just saying.

houginator: wildcardjack: The only way I'll be okay with this is if they release a mogwai robot that can actually walk around the house and engage with at least Furby level language skills.

What, you think that's a silly idea? Think of it as a stepping stone to practical household robots. If we have to make it a movie tie-in then so be it.

I think they already have those. They call them Furbies, and I would rather have an infestation of actual gremlins before i allow another furby to exist in the same house as me.,


In 2000, they released a Gizmo version of the Furby. They typically fetch $100+ on eBay these days.

Dingleberry Dickwad: gingerjet: you have pee hands: Are there really people out there who feel like Gremlins is this wonderful piece of cinema that shouldn't be tainted by a remake? We're not exactly talking about Casablanca here.

I recently saw it and Highlander a few weeks ago.  Both are classic examples of 80s crap.  Poor direction, bad acting, bad editing, bad production values, and bad direction.  They both scream for a reboot.  And Highlander is already in process.

/Highlander had reasonably good music

Highlander was cool, and kinda fun with great music, but dear god it was bad like you're saying. I think a reboot would be great as long as they don't try to remake Highlander 2 or any elements from it.

/yeah yeah, "They made a Highlander 2?"
//Gremlins isn't as great as we remember it, it's aged poorly. A remake would be fine by me.


It didn't help that Christopher Lambert can't act his way out of a paper bag.

Though I did like him in Greystoke. Probably just a coincidence that he didn't speak english through the bulk
of the movie. Just a lot of "ooh ooh" and grunting.

The Hunted was good too - but that was *in spite* of Lambert and not because of him.

The only movie I actually liked him in for *him* was...sigh...Mortal Kombat.

Wouldn't it just be easier to re-release the original, then? There's nothing wrong with it as is. That's usually the problem with remakes - there was no reason to do them in the first place, so it's an exercise in futility.


There is a reason for creating remakes, and this thread proves it - it automatically ensures millions of dollars worth of free publicity as soon as you announce the project, and it seems like most of the time it also provokes quite a lot of people to pay to watch it just so they can lambast it publicly the next day.

That's the actual script Mel Brooks wrote for it a while back. It was about President Scroob and Dark Helmet trying to erase all traces of Spaceballs 2 from existance and the heroes had to find where the master print was hidden, complete with references to the non-existant second one that no one understood. He mentioned in an interview recently that he couldn't get MGM interested because they though it would confuse too many people.

I do too. The worst thing that ever happened to me was on Christmas. Oh, God. It was so horrible. It was Christmas Eve. I was 9 years old. Me and Mom were decorating the tree, waiting for Dad to come home from work. A couple hours went by. Dad wasn't home. So Mom called the office. No answer. Christmas Day came and went, and still nothing. So the police began a search. Four or five days went by. Neither one of us could eat or sleep. Everything was falling apart. It was snowing outside. The house was freezing, so I went to try to light up the fire. That's when I noticed the smell. The firemen came and broke through the chimney top. And me and Mom were expecting them to pull out a dead cat or a bird. And instead they pulled out my father. He was dressed in a Santa Claus suit. He'd been climbing down the chimney... his arms loaded with presents. He was gonna surprise us. He slipped and broke his neck. He died instantly. And that's how I found out there was no Santa Claus.

Sure seems some midlivel movies could be remade. Of course, those movies, being failures, wouldn't attract investors.


THIS

The movie from the 1980s that should be remade is Brainstorm, directed by Douglas Trumbull. It's an OK film, but the story had far more potential (the production was a disaster by all accounts).

Of course, because it's not a known commodity, and lost money, no-one will do it.

My only hope, is that while excavating pop culture's landfill for remakes, they stumble upon such a project before they hit rock bottom. I do have precedent for hope from the comics world; a lot of b and c listers get remade from time to time to some success.

Dr Dreidel: kbronsito: Why are we wasting time remaking a movie that does not need remaking!

Black Swan on the other hand... that's due for a remake. In fact, it should be remade every year with two different actresses. I'm thinking Anne Hathaway and Rachel Bilson. Also are there any plans to remake whild things yet?

digitalrain: More 80s movies that are getting remade:

WarGames

Poltergeist

Drop Dead Fred

The Neverending Story

House Party (yes, the Kid n Play movie)

Flight of the Navigator

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure

Evil Dead

Dirty Dancing

Akira (farking Akira??? Really???)

The Crow

I'd list more, but it's hard to type curled up on a fetal position.


Wargames is ripe for a remake, something to update the story a bit to more modern times. I'll grant that some may argue that the Terminator franchise is an update or extension of Wargames.

Poltergeist I think deserves a bit of a scarier remake.

I didn't think Drop Dead Fred was worthy of it's original movie, much less a remake. I would think the movie "Ted" would be remake enough.

Neverending Story. Now that one I find hard to justify in any way. At the most updating some special effects maybe, but I fear it'll be done with CGI and it'll look bad.

House Party, dear gods there's been enough variations on that movie there's no need for a remake.

Flight of the Navigator. That one I'd be interested in seeing what could be done with updated special effects. As much as I loved that movie as a kid, it's definitely dated.

Bill and Ted don't need a reboot, they need a sequel. Sadly it just wouldn't be the same without Rufus, even if he didn't have much screen time back in the day.

Evil Dead, I can deal with a reboot, but I'd rather it be more like Evil Dead 2 than the original simply because I like humor with my horror.

Dirty Dancing, meh. Predicatable that they'd do a remake of it.

Akira, never saw the original so I don't really have an opinion on that one.

The Crow. That movie somehow managed to capture something special that they just couldn't get right in the sequels. Hell in a way the sequels were reboots of their own, and they all sucked, as will any reboot of this movie.

LeroyBourne: It made me kinda sad when that woman shoved that one gremlin into the micro-wave, as it winced and groaned in pain, then blew up. I wonder how this re-make will cover that scene or just keep it out all together.


that scene alone gave birth to the PG-13 Rating! Then Red Dawn was the first official movie released officially with the new rating!


I really don't have a problem with a new Gremlins movie, just make it a an actual sequel, not a remake of the original.

they've been talking about a Goonies sequel for a few years now. something about the orginal cast, and thier kids, the new Goonies, retracing the steps that their parents took, and the original Goonies having to go save their kids type of thing.

a new Bill and Ted adventure is being worked on....
 
2013-01-17 05:14:14 PM

BigLuca: movieman_1979: It's not that difficult. Use puppets, with as little CGI as possible (erase the wires, etc..). Bring back Spielberg to produce and Joe Dante directing. It really isn't that difficult.

Using puppets would increase the cost by almost 6% and make it nearly impossible for the asian Gremlin to use Kung-fu. And you can forget about "bullet-time" fighting.


This sounds like it would work well if they used "I'm Walkin' On Sunshine" at some point during the movie as well.

I like to use the term "physical effects" for actual puppets and set miniatures. but that still falls under the visual effects banner.

I will say this however.. I really liked the Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy movie for the simple fact the great majority of the creatures on set were actual latex and foam "puppets, honest to god muppets, on set intereacting with the Human cast.

You know what I never understood about Gremlins? How they could beat the Imperial Stormtroopers with only rocks and sticks. I mean, the Stormtroopers had armor and blaster rifles, but Spielberg had to go and make his analogy to the Jewish soldiers in Vietnam again, and it totally ruined any credibility. Yeah, it just HAPPENED to take place during Christmas. One of the Gremlins just HAPPENS to get nuked to death. Don't feed them, don't get them wet, don't let them see sunlight.

Prometheus had quite a few physical effects, and CG where you wouldn't expect it. It was all too funny to read the complaints about the "CG" engineers here on FARK where they were actually people in costume & prosthetics. Just goes to show you how clueless the anti-CGI brigade here is.

To be fair, CGI is done pretty badly in a lot of films nowadays, and bad CGI is far more noticeable and jarring than bad puppets or animatronics. A lot of films just don't make the attempt to fully integrate the CGI with the live-action: the digital creature has no mass, no weight, no physics; the digital terrain lacks the nuances of real terrain like grass rippling in the wind or the subtle differences and variations in the soil; the digital vehicle or vessel is too clean or too shiny or moves strangely. If every film went the extra mile to make the CGI complete, like Jurassic Park, the Star Wars prequels, the Pirates of the Caribbean films, the Lord of the Rings films, and King Kong did, there would be less criticism of CGI in general.

Of course, you'll still have the people who hate it on principle since it's something new and different, but you have to deal with that with everything.

I will readily agree that puppets and animatronics are usually the better choice, if the technology can pull off what's needed. I loved that Goro in the first Mortal Kombat movie was a guy in a suit + animatronics, they did an excellent job with him and he could walk around and interact physically with the cast and sets. Jurassic Park III was an amazing blend of practical and CGI, especially with the raptors, in most of their scenes there was at least one robot and one digital raptor on screen and it was really hard to tell them apart.

I'm firing up the episode to answer your question fully, but the answer to the first is "yes", they were trying to make him cool by making him partially rastafarian. Only 10%, so presumably very tiny dreadlocks and certainly no references to Jah or smoking weed. Basically it's clueless marketing talk, iirc, if you listen to all the gibberish they are saying while creating him. This may be the farthest that anyone has ever gone to explain a joke on the internet.

Having watched the episode, it's exactly as I said. He's a surfin rapper with sunglasses that recycles TO THE EXTREME. He bikes up a ramp to slam dunk a basketball. He's a mishmash of everything considered "cool" so that's the "point" of "rastafy him by 10%"

Two answers here.
One. When attempting to defend CGI, try not to use a character widely criticized for looking like horrible CGI

Two. The posers statement was, and I quote "There's plenty of great CG out there that nobody has a clue that's not real or on set" It is quite obvious that is CG and not "on set".
Now, if either of you have an example that as the poster claimed fooled us into believing CGI was on set I welcome you both to try again.

yup... 8... 42, 76.... i don't care what age.... All movies come with a neccessary suspension of disbelief.... At least with a large animatronic, you don't have to disbelief that the creature is actually 'there' on set. CGI,,,, its not only fake, its not even really 'there'.

again... i love CGI... lots of photorealistic stuff out there... trust me, i've seen the pixels... Just saying for monster movies, specifically, its the wrong approach.

"A remake of "Gremlins"? Sounds like a marvelous idea! We'll need a bit more funding, though. It's been awfully brutal, here. We had to put everything we have into canned food and shotguns."

Thanks, I mentally heard it in the voice of the smart Gremlin. I really enjoy both the Gremlins movies, hope they don't fark it up.


You're welcome. Brain was my favorite Gremlin in the second movie, with Mohawk a close second. As long as they tick to the spirit and style of the first two movies, they should do fine.

Any approach works, if it's done right and with feeling. Tri-Star's "Godzilla", while a god-awful movie, made Zilla look and move and feel incredibly well. "Mimic" was another monster movie with excellent CGI for creatures that would have been very difficult with puppets, robots, or suits.
