Normally I don't care if they reboot a movie, sometimes there is at least the possibility that an update will be good. But The Crow is already a fantastic movie as it is. I seriously doubt a reboot can even hope to pull off the same tone the original did.

skozlaw: Maybe they can replace the awesome soundtrack with Fallout Boy and Drake.

I think Pantera and the Stone Temple Pilots could easily be replaced by Justin Bieber and Kei$ha.

stoli n coke: This. I watched in on Netflix a few weeks ago, probably the first time I'd seen it in at least 10 years. It's practically a time capsule for 1993 angst. FFS, even the actor PLAYING the hero didn't survive. If that's not representative of grunge-era depression, I don't know what is.

Did give me an excuse to break out the soundtrack afterwards, though. Nine Inch Nails, Pantera, Henry Rollins, pre-rehab Stone Temple Pilots, Thrill Kill Kult, it's remarkable the talent they got together just to do a movie soundtrack.

Really. I even had a goth girlfriend back then. Everything was just so much more awesome in the early 90s. shiat, now I'm depressed.

Or you could just not reboot The Crow.

OniExpress: "During rumors that "The Crow" set was cursed, many accidents happened. A carpenter was severely burned after the crane in which he was riding struck high-power lines; then a disgruntled sculptor who had worked on the set drove his car through the studio's plaster shop, doing extensive damage. Later, another crew member slipped and drove a screwdriver through his hand and a lorry full of equipment mysteriously went on fire.
And there's also Brandon Lee's (Eric Draven) mysterious death during filming.  They were filming a flashback scene to show how he really died.  He was going to be shot with .44 Magnum which was not a prop, but a fully functioning firearm.  The gun was loaded with blanks, they are as loud as real bullets, but whe fired only the harmless cardboard wadding which they are packed is ejected from the gun.  But when the gun was fired, Lee fell to the floor with a wound the size of a quarter in his left abdomin.  Apparently, the metal tip of one of the dummy bullets had somehow pulled loose from its brass casing and killed Brandon Lee.
Even the T.V series, "The Crow: Stairway to Heaven" could not escape the curse of tragedy. Veteran stunt co-ordinator Marc Akerstream was killed while working on an explosive stunt involving a rowboat near a shoreline. Everything was working fine but when the stunt exploded a piece of debris shot up into the air, cleared a tree and struck Akerstream on the head. He was flown to a nearby hospital, where he later died."

Curse is a great excuse for poor safety standards and incompetence, don't you think?

One of the best parts about the 90s one was the sound track, imagine who they'd try to headline this one with?  That whiny band who's song all sound the same?  Yah right.

Wasn't the first one awesome enough? They had to make like 7 sequels, a TV show and now a reboot? Not to mention Spawn and Ghost Rider which are essentially the same story. I think the subject matter has been sufficiently covered.
