This is not gonna work on any level.

Yeah, I don't see this working.  They've tried so many times to recapture that magic, and it just ain't happening.

Abashed the devil stood and felt how awful goodness is...


Man I remember how many freaking people went as Eric Draven for Halloween for a few years after that movie. That shiat got annoying fast.

I loved the movie, but as most have said, it was a product of it's time. Let it go already.

For god sakes it can't be done right. Immpossible.


Yeah, methinks so, too.

Part of the charm of the original movie is its characteristic 1990s "dark" and "angsty" tone. You just can't do a scene where an emo murders some dudes in a trashed alley, then sits on a rain-drenched roof and plays a remorseful guitar solo to no one any more and make it look cool.

Which is probably a good thing, but, like The Highlander, bad as the original was, best to leave it alone.

7th Son of a 7th Son: skozlaw: stonelotus: whatever happened to Michael Wincott?

The 90s ended.

Crow, Strange Days, Dead Man and Robin Hood.... can't think of anything I've seen him in since.

Along Came A Spider.


The Count of Monte Cristo...looks as though he does mainly voice work, these days.

Therion: Quick impression for you:

Caw! Caw! Bang! fark, I'm dead!

Y'all ain't topping that.


Pretty much this. I might have been teetering on the wagon if Hiddleston was chosen, now...fuggedaboudit.

/Wincott was always a favorite baddie of mine, though

B.L.Z. Bub: highwayrun: I saw The Crow in a London theatre. I was sort of down in the dumps already, so I went to see a nice action-packed dark superhero movie and I thought it might cheer me up. When I got out of the movie theatre at 1 am, it was raining.

That did not cheer me up.

Uh, for serious? You thought a movie whose star accidentally got shot to death on set would cheer you up?

/Do you cut yourself just to feel something?


A star whose father was a martial arts legend and also died well before his time, don't forget.

BumpInTheNight: One of the best parts about the 90s one was the sound track...


Oh fark yes.  Whenever our tabletop sessions would run into a fight scene, we would put on the track from the Devil's Night conference scene.

/I'm not Skank, that's Skank right there...

TBH, I think Hiddleston would make a better Top Dollar than Eric Draven, though.  But maybe I'm just seeing him as Loki.

Maybe they can get Ernie Hudson to be the cop again

20 years later it surprisingly holds up pretty well. I caught it on BBC a few weeks ago and watched a bit. It was surprisingly stylish even though some of the trends were dated.

Wait a second... will Eric be in a hipster band in a regentrified neighborhood this time around?

The Crow took place in Detroit.  If anything, there are even more crumbling slums to use as backdrops.

I thought it was just supposed to take place in a Detroit-like city, not actually Detroit itself. Apparently the film itself was filmed in one of the Carolinas in the downtown district of a still active city that was just in need of a face lift.

It can't rain all the time...

Maybe because it was too easy.

The first crow is the only one worth watching.

But, with all due respect, the one with Kirsten Dunst wasn't terrible. It wasn't good, but not terrible either.

Fun Fact: The dude that plays "The Crow" in that movie was actually in the running to play Fun Boy. It was the actor playing Fun Boy who fired the life ending shot at Brandon Lee.

Yeah, it was supposed to be Detroit.  I guess that's like how Vancouver is New York in a lot of movies and TV shows.

It was filmed in Wilmington, where they also filmed Dawson's Creeek and Iron Man 3.  I think a majority of it was a studio created city set, as Wilmington is a bustling tourist beach town, "gateway to the Outer Banks".

I don't understand why can't they just let this one go as it was a product of its time, the goth "revival" of the 90's peaked with this and continued through Marilyn Manson's Antichrist Superstar and tapered down from there, now its just trailer park juggalo types doing that thing.  The graphic novel had some big differences from the film, the film is now horribly dated, almost comical.  Also the beatings of this dead horse in sequel and tv series should let them know to just let it go.  This remake has been in pre-production limbo for many years now.  Mark Wahlberg was attached to it for a long time, ugh.  It rode a cultural wave that is no longer in place today, image and beauty reign over rawness and cathartic emotion.  I think that sums the Crow movie up for me, where it lacked it plot execution and dialogue, it had full force earnestness driving it with mystery and an industrial backdrop.

Despite the mediocre script, I thought Eric Mabius gave a great performance. I loved how he played it as being  slightly unhinged.

Actually, making the lead character a dead juggalo could be awesome. You could even pit him against Magneto. Boom. Crossover. I expect to see the check in the mail shortly, Mr. Weinstein.
