“an incredibly specific story reason”
Yeah, looks good but if all the dramatic tension hangs on a twist that we all know, or at least modern audiences should be able to see coming, what’s the point?
I won’t consider seeing this until they state it’s git a different ending than the movie. One that’s contradicted a scene in the movie’s trailer but not in the film.
After the original gave us when the greatest twist endings of all time, it feels just odd to be remaking it. Either we already know the twist, or it’s going to be contorted into something else for the twist that it doesn’t seem appropriate to call it Jacob’s Ladder. Kind of like remaking Sixth Sense...
Stop re-making/re-booting great movies that do not need it. Stop it. You are wasting your time, movie studios. Poltergeist remake? Pointless and not better than or even as good as the original. Pet Semetary remake? Pointless and not better than or even as good as the original.
This reminds me of Plague, Inc...which is probably an appropriate comparison to the spread of humanity at this point.
Honestly, there’s no reason for anyone to take over the role of Indiana Jones. Create a new character with his or her own backstory and launch a new franchise.
He also just got his Grandmaster Award from the SFWA. I feel old now.
For a minute I was hoping it was a trailer for Nolan and Joy’s adaptation of William Gibson’s The Peripheral.
Dammit. I had money on the show being called Star Trek: Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra.
I take it Snoopy fell into the same category.
No Wondermutt? (As a young lad nothing was more heartbreaking to me than when Shoop throws Bob into the ocean and it gets swept away in the tide while Wondermutt looks for it, whimpering)
No Gromit, for shame.
This list makes me want to (include) Barf.
I guess Seymore is only an off-screen sidekick...
Aw, thank you!
Cecilia, you are undoubtedly the best working games journalist out there.
